CommentWhile I was observing and photographing larger numbers of immature Noisy Friarbirds visiting my bird bath, this juvenile Oriole came in for a drink (and an argument with one of the Friarbirds). Juveniles have rufous edging to feathers and lack the red iris of adults. I saw another (or the same bird) a few days later at the bird bath. This is the ventral (underside) view of the same bird as the previous post.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 263 mm 1/3200 sec, f/7.1, ISO 1600. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting. All noise reduction turned off in DPP. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where 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.
