p.1 #1 · woodstork with new 600mm


I finally got to use my new Canon 600mmv2 lens (1D4 body). This shot was taken with the 1.4xTC in place.for an effective focal length of 1092mm. Shot at Shark Valley in the Everglades,early morning. I used Niks Color Effex Pro , detail extractor to bring out the feather detail. Pixel Genius sharpener. I liked the head angle and catch light in its eye which I brightened just a bit in Photoshop.




Update: Per the suggestions, I reedited this image and removed the blurred v background and bits of sky. I also cropped it a bit tighter and flipped it forprinting for a book (I like animals to be looking out of a book, not into it.) Just for fun, I also am posting a close up of its eye. ;-0

Congrats on the new lens Bill Nice job on the techs, looking great. One nit would be the blur going forming a V with the birds beak

Thanks guys. After posting I noticed the sky might be distracting but had not noticed the background blur forming a v. I will redo that.

Hi Kent. Glad you are enjoying my old 500!!! (sold here on FM) The 600 had a lot to live up to but I am gradually getting confidence in it.Bill
