p.1 #1 · Here comes the egret!


-1







-2







-3







-4







-5







-6







All: D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 400, 1/1600, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)

I took these in Oceanside a few days ago. Sometimes things just happen in front of you if you go the correct place.

I used 2 different types of processing to these images. The ones with the most detain and least brilliant whites are done using linear burn to bring out the detail. I think Iím going to save linear burn for times when I need it and keep going with my usual processing that produces much more brilliant whites.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

These are great Morris. My favorite part is the underwing in the first two images...but of course the last ones are excellent as well. Nice to have various techniques for different image types.

Love the images, Morris.
I'm with Birdie on the question. I'm assuming the bird is swallowing something, but I can't imagine what. Or is that a really strange-looking tongue?

I would agree with you Morris about linear burn, used incorrectly it will muck up you whites, best to get it right in the camera. I like the last portrait the best of the set, the killer instinct eye does it for me.

Thank you Eric,

I like to play with different processing and share the results to help others.

Hi Roberta,

It went after something that I could not see. Possibly a bug or a plant

Thank you Charlie,

They have a very long tongue that fits its nice long mouth. You can see all of the tongue in the second image.

Thank you Tim,

I almost always nail my whites. I was using linear burn to bring out feather detail and when you do this it darkens the darker whites so it is a mixed blessing. Sometimes it works wonderfully.

super shots, and clean, Morris. I noticed you were using iso 800 and 1/1600sec speed, would iso 400 and 1/800sec been better?

Thank you Joe,

Yes for the protrats, no for the BIF as the wings would blur. At ISO 400 I'd need less agressive noise reduction which would be an advantage.
