CommentWe are so lucky in Australia to have such an amazing diversity of beautiful parrots. I feel this male Superb Parrot shows this off extremely well with his startling colour combination. I was fortunate enough to come across a few of these low in a tree, relaxing and seemingly not concerned by my, such that I was able to approach quite closely.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 1, handheld at 400mm
1/320 sec, f8, 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. Highlights darkened and shadows lifted in background to make it less intensely bright. Main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
