p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Contrast and sunset


-1







D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 800, 1/1000, f8
Convert as shade to warm, filled in the edges to hide the sky

-2







D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 800, 1/1000, f8

-3







D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 800, 1/200, f5.6
Processed in ACR to maximize color and contrast

-4







D200 + 80-400 VR @ 102mm, ISO 800, 1/800, f5.6, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)
Local contrast adjustments to maximize color and also to tone down the flash on the foliage

These are all from Sunday evening at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Sanctuary here in New York City. There are a number of style changes from what Iíve been doing over the past few months in this set. Iíve dose artistic processing rather than out of the camera work. Iím shooting during the magic hour and I had my flash off, though I did not intend that.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

I really liked the way the first one turned out Morris, quite a dramatic effect.

Hi Morris.

This is a favorite technique of mine when it can be done. I love this look vs the documentary out of camera look

Any time you can find an animal beautifully lit against a shadowed background, I think it makes the most amazing images.

Keep working at stuff like this. It really stands out.

Check out this image by Edwin Kats:

Its one of my favorites.

Morris, it's good to do things differently at times.
The first looks indeed very cool.
