CommentCon Boekel and I (at his suggestion) made a trip into Namadgi National Park to see how the birds had fared after the fires. We were hoping to see some life and get some photos in the unique burnt setting. Bird life was certainly sparse but was about in patches, particularly where there were some partly burnt trees and where mainly the understory had burnt. This cute robin obliged for a photo, landing at quite close range. A pair of them seemed to be working over a patch of ground so sitting and waiting eventually paid off. This is an uncropped frame.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/320 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 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.
LocationCorin Dam road, Namadgi National Park, Australian Capital Territory
