CommentThank goodness for the curiosity of these little birds. In order to get an image that I could crop to just the head and neck I had to get very close to my subject. Happily this little bird obliged. However taking the image was easy. Cropping and downsizing to meet the competition image sizes, was a whole new challenge. I chose to enter this image as it meets the competition theme of sharpness and clarity of the identifiable features of the head and bill. The eye-ring, the nostrils, ear-coverts, rictal bristles, the slightly hooked maxilla and the feather detail are all clearly evident in this image
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D mark II ,Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM , Ext EF 2x III
1/250sec @f/7.1 ISO800 Spot Metering focal length 600mm Handheld. Raw file rendered in DPP4 . I reduced the sharpening in DPP4 from the default value (4) to a value of 2 . I also did not perform any Noise reduction in DPP4 . I then transferred a 16bit tiff file to Photoshop where I used TopazDenoise 6 to reduce noise ,adjusted shadows ,downsized the image and performed a final sharpening before saving.
LocationMt Kaputar National Park, New South Wales
