CommentI was alerted to this bird's presence, not far off the walking track, by the loud rustling noise as it investigated the dried bark for its next snack. It thought there was something in this piece of bark as it spent a minute or two probing and poking holes with its bill.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 321mm
1/100 sec, f7.1, ISO 3200.
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 to the main subject(s) using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Stronger noise reduction was applied to the remainder. Main subject selected and adjustments made to lighten shadows, darken highlights and increase midtone contrast as appropriate. Inverse of main subject selected and adjustments made as appropriate to contrast, highlights, shadows and saturation to make the bird stand out more effectively. Main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationJoalah National Park, Mt Tamborine, Queensland
