CommentKing Parrots and Crimson Rosellas enjoy grazing in patches of saltbush in my garden. I liked the fact that most of the bird was hidden in the foliage in this shot, only the bright head protruding: a 'peek-a-boo' shot. By the way, I have *not* added any saturation to this shot. I'm always amazed how intense the colour can be on these.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm 1/500 sec, f/6.3, ISO 3200. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting. 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. Inverse of main subject selected and slight increase in brightness made. Main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
