CommentLike the last time I was at Werribee for the conference last year, there were plenty of Cisticolas and the best way to photograph them was from the vehicle window. The background is one of the ponds. I had to work hard to recover this as I'd underexposed it and it was quite noisy, but Neat Image has done a fine job of cleaning it up. Note the aperture used which was an accident. I had been photographing a row of swallows a short time before and forget to open the aperture up again.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/500 sec, f11, ISO 1600.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where further noise reduction was applied to the main subject using Neat Image plugin for PSE. The background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
