p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · All Avocets


From two different days shooting at Palo Alto Baylands. Decisions about exposure and post-processing are challenging for these birds, with few intermediate tones. I would appreciate any advice/feedback/suggestions.

#1-#3 are portrait shots all taken on a sunny day last month; #4 is a group shot (also sunny); #5 is a portrait on an overcast day (but just a week later, even though this bird's plumage has started to look like summer).

Thanks for looking,

Greg

These are great Greg. I think you've done a stellar job with the exposures and sharpness.

I agree. You handled the whites very well and that low pov is super. Good stuff, Greg.

Stunning shots !! You have captured the grace of this beautiful bird, reminds me of a ballet dancer especially in the first three shots. Lovely work.

I agreed with the others. You did so well with exposure. #1 is top my list.
Is it recently at Bayland Palo Alto, Greg

Thanks, everyone!

#1 - #4 were from early January, #5 early February; all from a kayak, which works pretty well for getting close to Avocets and sandpipers. Ducks are much harder for me.

#1 is a super shot and the bird is gorgeous also. Hope you can get back there for breeding plumage. Don
