CommentNot a photo that's going to appeal to everyone and a bit of an experimental shot. I took it this morning on a quite foggy dam. I have tried photographing in fog before with mixed results. Nevertheless, I thought this one had some potential. I liked the subtle banding and tones in the background, that thin line of disturbed water from the bird's motion and the muted but relatively clear view of the bird. Taken with an angle finder to get close to the water's surface.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm 1/640 sec, f6.3, ISO 1600. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction (at about 50% of default values). 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 using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Highlights reduced across the frame and colour slightly desaturated. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationKambah, Australian Capital Territory
Keywordsadult, non-breeding plumage
