CommentI was lucky with the situation as the bird was moving out of the edge of the lake which was shadowed by vegetation into full sun creating the spotlight-like effect against a dark background and dark water surface covered in algae. From memory, I dropped down off the boardwalk for this shot.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/1250 sec, f7.1, 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.
LocationLake Curalo, Eden (New South Wales)
