Beautiful Portrait Nonac!

Thanks.  I really like how the sunlight hi-lighted the feathers on the edges.  It also seemed to make the beak almost glow.

Little Blue Heron
5dIII and 100-400mmL
1/1600th
f/5.6
iso - 3200

Sadly, it was getting dark out when i saw this guy coming home from shooting a quick Real Estate gig in jpeg.  Totally forgot to change my settings!  I hate it when that happens!!  I go from this ;D to this  :-X

Right when I realized, I stopped to switch back over to Raw and someone walked up and scared him with a Boo!  Why would one do that?

Thanks Candc, I thought it was pretty funny too.  I didn't even see the drops shake off until I got it in post!

Thanks Serendipidy, I only use DPP and checking I see a little sharpening and I've bumped the NR from default 6 to 8 out of 20 - really not much.  As stated I find the shot disappointing becasue of what it might have been rather than knocking ISO 10K.  I guess it comes down to basically, is the composition worthy enough to accept the grain and lack of sharpness??

Here's one in the sequence where it is totally untouched and I see the ISO was up to 12.8K, and it shows!

Jack, I'm with Click and others, it's a lovely image.  Do you think you may have reduced your shutter speed to perhaps 1/250th and perhaps not had to hit the 10k iso range?

Thanks Krob78.  I'm reluctant to drop much below 640th with the 300 X2 because of subject movement blur, which after a shot has disappointed due to it, I've kicked myself.  I guess with practice you get to know better when and what you can get away with.  Plus there is quite a bit to think of in that moment when something shows up and I'm just not a quick thinker.  I miss my fair share!  But it won't stop me from trying. :)

Hi, here (after a long abstinence) a few "Watery Birds". Nothing special but I do like the Bokeh in the water.
I'm glad you've all being keeping standards up while I was busy <G>

Forgot to say, top two are Moorhens, bottom one is a Coot.
Cheers Brian

Very nice BJD, I especially like the color of the water and reflections in the 1st two...

Thanks, everyone for your kind words and replies. Harry and I both appreciate it. ;D

I am always amazed and encouraged by the quality of the beautiful photos posted here by you all. It helps me to improve and gives me something to strive for.

Each afternoon, when I start helping Harry catch his fish dinner, these same two male Brazilian cardinals immediately show up out of nowhere for a bread handout. They will both approach quite closely if I don't give them a morsel right away. Yesterday, after they got their meal, they both took off and returned several minutes later with a dozen of their female friends who all wanted a bread handout, too. It was quite a ruckus for a few minutes, fighting over the bread crumbs I threw at my feet. ;D
