p.2 #2 · Bald Eagle Fish Steal Attempt


I have been watching your post for a while now and I'm still debating if I should even write this post because I will be the bad guy but here it is.
Noise & lock of sharpens just killed it for me, maybe few years back I might say wow but now its not even OK I guess we got spoil with new cameras that give us clean High ISO. I think it was much more enjoyable to shoot the sequence
but in my case I would look those thru and delete it.
Herb why are you shooting at ISO1600 is it cloudy all the time because because most of you post are just noise.
I been shooting for years now and I don't ever have to go over ISO 500 on sunny day and I usually shoot ISO 400. I will shoot few at ISO 1600 but at the sunset or after and even then Noise is not so bad.
I have shot in the past with NIkon D2X which was as noisy as your camera at ISO 1600 so I never went over ISo 400 and I had lot so great shots but you have to know your camera limits I check the whether before I go out so I don't have to shoot ISO 3200.
We all love to shoot Bald Eagles and I enjoy looking over other guys photos which motivates me to get better but I also like criticism so I can correct my mistakes, and I don't want to lie to you by saying the your shots are superb because there not. Just ask your self would you print & frame any of you shots in this post?
Take care and good luck up there and I know you will get this one shot one day that will make say Wow.

Herb why are you shooting at ISO1600 is

Thanks for taking the time on your reply. I will say this about the sharpness. The images may appear less sharp to you as you over sharpen all of your images which is evidenced by some of the replies on your threads. From someone who comes out once a year to promote his own gimbal and posts only several replies to others in a whole year's time, I'll take the sharpness comment with a grain of salt. I understand the images may be a bit soft, but if you have a sharper series of similar behavior, you're welcome to post it here, without the over sharpening of course. Best of luck on the upcoming series.

Hi Herb,

Wonderful action. I'm wondering if cropping a bit less will make these look better regarding both sharpness and noise. It's one of those frustrating trade offs we need to make.

Love them all,

Morris


Thanks for the comments Morris. Some of them were tight to a corner as the action was fast and oncoming. I was limited to how much less I could crop as I tried to keep them all about the same size thru the series.

Love the "two-headed eagle" (second from last shot). What a great sequence to get, Herb. What we all hope for.


Thanks for the comments Glenn

nice set, but it's very noisy and not very sharp. I'd imagine these were heavy crops.


Not really, but they were a bit underexposed. Thanks for the comments.

OMGoodness- what an incredible series!
These are so far beyond my capabilities that I'm not even jealous .
Amazingly, it looks as though the two adults were trying hard to NOT injure each other.
Is that the sense you had, Herb?
Charlie


Hi Charlie, thanks for stopping by. The eagles hold nothing back and may even injure each other at times in aerial battles.
