Adult Bald Eagles

Discussion in 'Birds' started by 06Honda, Feb 10, 2019.

  1. I shot these yesterday downtown Kingston along the lake shore. Haven't been able to photograph this species a couple of years. Saw the pair perched a ways away and waited them out for about an hour and it paid off.

    ** Adjusted lighting on these. Thanks for tips on that.

  2. Nice poses. Eagles are always fun to see/shoot - at least for people who don't live in areas where tehy are as common as pigeons.
    The image are too dark though. I would lighten them up, both the bird and the sky.

  3. Beautiful birds on a beautiful day. You can't beat the IQ of a D7200 in those conditions. Like Allan things look a tad dark to me.

  4. Nice job, but would agree with the comments from both Allan and Dan.

  6. Our skies here in the winter are very dark blue on a sunny day and some dialing back is often needed but to me its normal but getting a tip is just fine with me. Helps me look at my shots from a different view and sometimes it works out better. I have my D7200 set for Vivid for colour so I will try adjusting this to Normal next time out and see what the shots look like with a blue sky background. The only software I use for post editing is the Photos App on my Macbook Pro, most are start out of the camera.

  7. If I shot jpg I would use a neutral picture control and adjust in post

  8. Very nice! I’m one of those who doesn’t see eagles regularly (ever) and love looking at photos of them.
