hawks and cougars
« on: April 08, 2012, 06:44:26 PM »
Just got some shots with a Tamron 200-500 f5-6.3 and a 300 f4 L IS USM. Taken at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. Can you tell the lenses apart?

The browns came out better than mine on my 7d. Was this from post?

The one I took was true to the time of day which was right before dusk so it had a little red from the Arizona sky. I did some minor post:  cropped to better set the cat where I wanted him, slightly brighten the scene as it was in partial shade, added a little saturation to heighten the colors and de-emphasized the background immediately above the cougar.

Mine are straight from the camera, uneditted, using Tamron 200-500 on all my cougar shots around 8:20am. So lots of factors there why. Makes sense, thank you. Do you live here in Tucson?

I lived there for 4 years but I moved away. I now come about once a year to enjoy the Sonoran desert.

Tucson resident here - long time member of both Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and Reid Park Zoo (where I am a docent).  Here are a couple puma shots with 5D2 - a daytime one that I think was with 300 f/4L and a night shot that I think was with 80-200 f/2.8L.  As I am sure you both know, they stay open until 10pm on summer Saturdays.  Both shots are unedited camera jpegs (only change was downsizing file).
