CommentWhile this is a common species, a tight, highly detailed close-up like this is much less common and more difficult to obtain - even though this is quite a big crop of the original, it has held up fairly well. It illustrates the beautiful feather detail on these small birds. I also liked the 'look back' pose as it glanced in my direction and the warm tones in the background. The yellow on this bird's front was quite intense and has not been enhanced in any way.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 349mm 1/320 sec, f/6.3, 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 further noise reduction was applied to the whole image using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Further adjustments made to the whole image to slightly lighten shadows and darken highlights. Small amount of sharpening applied before final upload.
LocationNamadgi National Park, Australian Capital Territory
