The lens was 300:

A M A Z I N G. ONE OF THE BEST PHOTOS EVER

+1, great picture! It looks so good, I had to convince myself that it's not a fake :-)

AWB would be the culprit Eldar, most people these days will leave white balance up to the Camera set to Auto, after all it can be fixed in Post.

I'm of the opinion that WB is best fixed in Camera, so I always set the white balance manually, just like you would for a jpg Image.
I normally leave it on AWB. As long as I shoot RAW it is easily adjustable in post. But in this case, where I thought I had set the same WB (temp and tint) on all images and everything looked exactly the same in LR and on print, I was surprised to see the difference that appeared when I posted them here.

What advantage do you actually get from setting WB manually in the camera? That is not apparent to me.

A couple from my first successful outing with the 1D X + 300 f/2.8 IS II & 1.4x III:

Snowy Egret @ 420mm f/4 1/500s ISO 400:


Anhinga @ 420mm f/4 1/1000s ISO 4000:


Double-crested Cormorant @ 300mm f/2.8 1/1250s ISO 320:


Nice shots Mack....good to see that you're enjoying your new 1dx!

+1, thanks for putting the link up on CR. I had a look at the slideshow and they are all superb. The general standard of images on the 1Dx thread  is remarkable.

Were these shot on the Spey ? I had no idea there was so much Osprey activity there - judging from the different angles of the pictures I presume they are multiple catches.

It was at the Rothiemurchus Estate, Aviemore.  The Gillie at Rothiemurchus is Julian (a damn nice guy), julian.orsi@rothie.net he can sort out hide time.

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

One question though. All three pictures went through exactly the same process and adjustments (hardly any). But on my monitors, of which one is a self calibrating Eizo, the third image has totally different colors than the others. Does any of you have an explanation for that?

Hi Eldar, do you know if you changed color profiles in there?  The ones with the weird colors look like what you get when you try to display an image with an ICC V4 profile on a monitor which doesn't support it.

http://www.color.org/version4html.xalter might be relevant.  I had a devil of a time figuring it out until I realized I had my i1 display pro calibrator set to create an ICC v4 profile; that has some performance benefit but apparently isn't widely supported.

Jim

ETA - I opened the original image (_D7T4966-2.jpg] in PS CS6 and the colors came out substantially like the second image _D7T4966-3.jpg.  In Firefox and Irfanviewer the original had that weird cast to it.

A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.

They're shot in the same burst(s), within 20-30s from first to last. Camera set to manual mode, with auto ISO. WB temp=5700 on all images, but tint was increased from 14 to 15. No profile change.

I don't mean that it was a camera setting but rather something in your workflow; either an ICC v4 profile from one of your calibrators or a ProPhoto color profile.  Come to think of it the latter makes more sense considering that the off-color image opened ok in CS6 but not in Firefox which is ICC v4 compliant.

I have not made any such changes. I entered the whole series in LR, fixed the first image in the series and pasted those settings to all the rest (WB tint was not part of the copy/paste). The only additional change I made pr. image was cropping adjustments.

You can see from the second copy I posted that it looks like the first two in the series. The only thing I changed was WB tint from 15 to 14.
