CommentApologies this is a repost. I wasn't happy with the original version posted yesterday and have worked further on the lighting adjustments. Aside from the nice pose of the bird, I did like the mottled background in this shot. Taken in spring when nest sites are being scouted and established. The shot is from a dead tree next to the main track in the reserve.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm 1/125 sec, f7.1, 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 darken highlights only and increase midtone contrast. Colour of bird desaturated a little to make it look more natural. Selective sharpening applied to head which looked slightly soft. Inverse of main subject selected and contrast reduced slightly. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
