CommentI've been on a mission to get some better personal images of this bird, the most colourful of Tasmania's 12 endemic avian species. I can't help the impression this one smiled for the camera.
EquipmentCanon EOS 5D IV
EF 100-400 L IS II + 1.4x III TC, at 560mm, centre spot servo AF, handheld
Manual exposure, 1/800 sec, f/9, ISO 1000, spot metering
Processing: Lightroom Classic CC for RAW conversion and initial adjustments, then Photoshop CC, where final noise reduction using Neat Image was applied to the bird+perch only. The background was separately treated with Gaussian Blur to subdue distracting elements, which seems to have also produced the overall look of a much longer telephoto shot. Final sharpening was applied to the bird only, after size reduction to web submission dimensions.
LocationPilchers Hill Reserve, Geilston Bay, Hobart eastern shore, southern Tasmania (Tasmania)
