Wow, so clear and colorful.
No way I could let this go by and not comment. I have switched gears back to birds, and this is inspirational. So original! It's position of the feet and wings are so awesome. Don't know what the noise is at the bottom half, but I don't care. Was this shot at 500mm? And at what F-stop? It's missing a little detail, and I suspect it's from that far end of the focal length. Either way, Great catch!
Very nice image, I like the contrast with the dark background, ciao Giangiorgio
It was at 5pm with late afternoon sunshine, 150mm at F5, iso 800, 1/3200 s, -2ev, the bird was pretty close to me and if I remeber right OS was off, handheld. The noise you mentioned might be the waterwave underneith. The branch was just above the water and that's why the dark background is.
my regards, ZW.
Seems like it's way over sharpen, just my opinion, TFS!
Oh ok. That makes sense. Great shot.
