Great shots, you captured the colors and expressions really well. I'm curious, did you process the images at their original EV and pull the shadows/blacks up a lot or increase the exposure in post? There's seems to be excessive noise in the photos of the drake(s) for shooting at ISO 400-500. For me the noise detracts from the image quality every so slightly. My apologies if the criticism is unsolicited, the photos are excellent despite my nitpicking.

...edit for clarity


I actually overexposed these a bit and I had to bring the highlights down, the blacks were fine since it was overexposed a bit. Thanks for the comments.

Great series, I can never get that close to woodies. Now the questions. Does your wife appreciate the time you spend over the skillet? Does the teflon help your IS? Don't get dishpan hands......... I had to do it.

Mike


Thanks Mike

Juat amazing portraits Herb ! Brilliant stuff.

Many thanks for the tip - I'll be off to make one of those now ! However your 'dirt' looks much firmer and less clingy than my dirt !


Our dirt may be less clingy, but I'm sure ours has more duck and goose poop than yours.
