These are some of my GBH pics from the G'ville dam trip with Frank and Greg this weekend. Some of them turned out pretty good, inspite of the weather.
I played around with curves to adjust the WB. I'd be interested on any comments you have on the WB and sharpness.
These were taken with the 300f4 and TC1.4.

This guy landed in a tree right above me. SB800 and flash extender used.

I know this one is clipped, but I like it anyway. Why can't they make a TC with an instant off?

This one is a pretty tight crop, but just looks funny to me.

Well done Chris!! You have taken to that new 300 like a duck to water. These are so good, especially considering the horrible conditions Sunday.

Way to go. :wink:

Looking good Chris. I was beginning to wonder about them. Looks like you did better than I with the contrast. Well done.

Hi Chris

Can you elaborate on "I played around with curves to adjust the WB". Do you mean you used the eye dropper in curves or that you manually adjusted the channels?

I see you have the same problem I do when using the flash extender. We need to get more separation between the flash and the camera :)

Rory, I was using the "90 percent method" (I think that is what you call it). I put markers on the black eyeball and the white feather area just under the eye. Then I adjusted the channels in curves so that the markers were 'neutral'. It seemed to work pretty well, but some looked a little red. But they definitely looked better than the originals.
