CommentThis is a reprocessed version of an image I deleted from the Main Library a while back, but which I've hesitated to discard permanently as I always thought it had a certain appeal and good colour. The revised version is a more open but still hefty crop, with more space to the right of the bird, better noise reduction and colour balance, and blur applied to the previously very confused background. I hope it works.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D
EF 100-400 L IS I, at 400mm, centre spot servo AF, handheld
Shutter priority, 1/400 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400
Processing:
Lightroom Classic CC for RAW conversion and initial adjustments, then Photoshop CC where moderate noise reduction with Neat Image was applied to the bird and perch. The background was selected and processed separately, with a measure of Gaussian Blur applied to subdue a network of distracting elements. Size reduction to web submission dimensions was followed by final sharpening of the bird and perch only, using Smart Sharpen.
LocationRisdon Brook Reserve, Hobart eastern shore, southern Tasmania, Tasmania
