Very slow bird day today, two spots were completely dead- nada, nothing.
As I was about to leave my 3rd spot, I think this tricolor felt sorry for me.
He could have picked a better background- but he flew back and forth feeding for about 10min.
They are very good fishers- he was successful on I believe every pass- once getting 2 small fish.
I bad day photographing is better than a good day at work. This was a good day.

Yikes- oops. Thanks. Fixed.
Changed versions at the last minute and thought I fixed that- I had to rotate it a little and that went "outside" the crop.
Thanks again

Interesting moment captured here, Gary. This one looks a little over saturated to my eye. Is it just the lighting playing tricks on me?

I'm also starting to dream about those slow days not working even if I don't press the shutter release.

Thanks all.
This does still look a little crunchy and I am not sure why. I had it worked up and finished- and when I posted it, it was really over the top in coloration. I went back to the original raw file and really did nothing to it- although this one did need an exposure adjustment and shadows raised more than usual. Did nothing else to it. (Got sloppy when I adjusted the crop, which Mike caught.). Not sure why it is still glowing, might actually have to cut back on saturation a little.
Working less is terrific.

I think I figured it out.
My normal color workflow starts in DXO. That program does not support the sony A1 yet,
I have been using capture one, which I really really like for black and white.
I am remembering why I never used it for color work.
It just handles color differently, and I have never taken the time to understand the color flow. My dxo flow works and I am happy with it.
I think I will put the color images on hold until dxo supports the camera- lots and lots of black and white work to do.

Heads up, Gary! DXO has just provided a new update which includes support for the Sony Alpha 1 and a few other new cameras! I don't have an A1 yet but was about to edit something in DXO Photolab 4 that I'd shot with the A7R IV when the notification about the software update came in and I immediately thought of you...... I'm happy, as now when I DO get the new camera DXO Photolab 4 will be ready for it!
