p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Horned Grebes varying light......(2)


As we sat watching and enjoying the Grebes in the varying low light it was interesting to see the files as different areas of the pond had much different looks from the reflections they carried. The manual exposure was helpful to keep the subject exposed correctly as the BG luminance changed drastically .

Here are a few more with a few more to follow again later........comment and enjoy!

Thanks
Karl

These takes are wonderful Karl. Love the low angle approach. You worked hard and it paid dividends.

It was interesting to see the files as different areas of the pond had much different looks from the reflections they carried. Extremely important element IMHO

1/500s worked well in #1 giving a nice little bit of wing-blur and water droplet-blur too. I definitely think you can get lower though.

#2 is terrific... love the contrast of the beautiful colors of the HG against the light water... super duper Karl. I keep wanting to give it some CW rotation though.

Great job on one of my favorite birds buddy... I need to get out to BC this weekend to get me some of these.

Two winners Karl. Great job on the exposures. Manuél got them right. A great pose in 1, but 2 is my pick for the great detail - now if I could just look at it without tilting my head to the left... ~ Ron

Awesome Karl, especially 2, sharp, sharp and the soft gradient background really makes the subject pop. Did you dig a hole in the ground and lay in it to get this angle

Both are very well exposed, Karl. I like the second one as it shows better detail on the head

2 real nice shots Karl! I think the shutter may have been too slow on the first, the blurred wings work well but I think the body isn't quite right. Maybe I'm too critical? I say the same thing about a lot of my flapper shots 2 is wonderful, I like everything about this one. Getting a nose hole AND a good head angle doesn't happen too often, it sure did for this one. I would rotate it a bit, the tilt makes it a bit uneasy to my eye.

Great job on the tricky exposures and changing conditions. That's what it's all about
