finally got one im satisfied with, could still use some c & c though
1/320 f5.6 ISO800
Looks darned good to me!
pretty good but seems a bit washed out. try bumping the contrast a bit.
I like it. However, because you asked for C&C, and because animal photography is so tricky, here's one thing: the focus looks ever so slightly off. It's hard to tell exactly where, but the bird feels very slightly defocused. This may be a result of some noise from ISO 800.
However, I think it's a good bird shot -- and getting the focus tack-sharp on animals is really tricky!
here ya go
i know what you mean. i actualy (for once) got the focus spot on, but i had to run it through a noise reducer and that made it a little less sharp.
well straight from the camera, it had to much. the birds chest was almost blown out and the rest was a little dark. this was the best outcome i could get.
maybe you could help me?
clean edit, but it lost alot of color...
I like the originals best the edits do nothing for me. The boost in contrast has added a green tinge to the bird. Here is my edit. Slightest curves adjustment and a little unsharp mask.
now when you say unsharp mask, what exactly does that mean?
Unsharp mask is a standard sharpening tool which (counterintuitively) uses blurring to make things appear sharper. It's extremely common -- any moderately good photo editor will have it. Give 'er a try!
