From Austria
« on: July 20, 2012, 06:36:01 AM »
Just back from a short trip to Austria and took both of my cameras with me.  When I need speed, the 645D just isn't built for that so bird shots will nearly always be done with the Canon. I do find that the Pentax has much better dynamic range than the Canon, although the Canon's inbuilt HDR is good and even better as it retains the RAW files.  Here are some more shots including some of the Maltatal Dam, which is Austria's highest at about 700ft high.

Looking from the top of Villach Alpenstrasse - this is a handheld HDR using photomatix to blend the three exposures taken using auto bracketing on 5D3:

An alpine bird - not sure which one could be a kind bird from the crow family, possibly a raven:
