CommentI had an excellent session with the Red-backed Fairy-wrens at Oxley Creek on a recent visit to Brisbane. There were a number of males in breeding colour moving around together as well as a contingent of females. I'm guessing this is a female but could also be a non-breeding male. At one point, as I waited quietly on the side of the track, I had them hopping not much more than a metre from me. A delight to watch. I've cloned a couple of twigs out of this shot.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/800 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.
