7 new Shots, Natural/Flash lighting, long exp ...

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Boobie Joe, Jun 27, 2005.

  1. The first shot is from a few days ago, the last 6 shots were done today on an outing with Phototech (from this board).

    The shots have hardly been retouched in colors, in crop and framing maybe and cleaning dust bunnies.

    The colors come from the combination of a Cokin cir pol #164, a blue gold polarizer # 178 and an ND8 filter in some cases. You'll see different colors in same location done by playing with the filters adjustments. In some of the cases very long exposures happened ...

    Hope you like them

    Thx for looking

    Yves :


    You've outdone yourself here, sir. I'm flabbergasted and amazed at the colours you've captured.

    IMO, this is some of the most lovely bird photography you've done.

    Wow. Congratulations on exceptional capture, technique, and composition.

    hi yves-

    great photos, i didn't think you could use flash to freeze animals combined with long exposures to capture water in motion. great work.

  7. They are all outstanding pictures, the one that I like the most is the last one i guess it's because of the poise the heron is in.
  8. Yves,

    These are awesome. Love what you accomplished by playing with this stuff...kudos!! :shock: :shock:

    If ever there were some saleable images,

    these would be them! These are really fantastic Yves!Any special treatment of the colors in post, or did they just come out that way?
