    One more look at a few Woodys. Weather pretty gray around here with rain on the horizon so I worked up a few more from my last visit.

    thanks Kevin
    I'm really glad you like, I wasn't sure I could do their beauty justice. Honestly there not that easy to exp for and of course like all birds they just don't seem to want to cooperate and pose politely!
    :biggrin:
     
  5. Ben these are really good shots. The light and colors are magic and you did them all justice. I agree with you they are not easy subjects but you managed them well.

    Just excellent Ben. I certainly can't tell that these were taken in poor light. They are just plain stunning. Never seen these guys out of the water before, so in addition to some great shots, you have some unique (at least in my experience) poses.

    Very well done. :wink:
     
  7. These are just incredible ducky "portraits". Great capture of the poses in 2 and 4. Did you shoot these in RAW? Did you have to do any post-processing noise adjustment for 500mm? Isn't that D2Hs something with the colours !!
     
  8. Fantastic images very well done, god I love these birds.
     
  9. Incredible shots Ben.

    Hi Frank
    I had to use Flash on most if not all these shots (good practice). Settings on flash seemed best at about 2/3 to 1 -EV.
    they actually seem to like being out of the water, they'll sit on low branch in pairs. I'll try and capture some of that next time there.

    Hi Andrea

    Yes I shoot only in RAW
    I use noise reduction within PCS2 and only on the background.
    Yes again Love my Hs anxious to see what new firmware upgrade produces!!
