American Goldfinch in Texas. A common bird in the winter here. Unfortunately, they are not here when they have their beautiful summer plumage.
I just got this lens today! I already love it.. 5D iv, 100-400L ii, 1.4x iii; ISO 2000, F 10, 1/160; 560 mm (all I got!)
If you want to add the exif info, you can click edit and type it in to the text. If the exif has not been stripped from the shot (Alan’s shots still have it) you can go through a few steps to see it, on my iPad I click the picture which opens it in the viewer then click the box with the arrow pointing out, this opens a new page, then copy the link and paste it in Jeffrey’s Image Metadata Viewer, if the exif is intact you will see the details of the shot, equipment, settings etc.
Unfortunately many must have their export set to strip the exif, including yours? I thought the CR site might have been stripping the exif but Alan’s is definitely there.
Some of the pictures are hosted on Flickr, like Olaf’s and again if the exif is not stripped on upload the exif is all there.
If you want help from Craig (CR Guy) you probably need to ask on the Suggestions / Issues thread, I think this is a thread he regularly monitors, too many threads for him to monitor all of them all the time and I think this one needs watching the least!
Thanks! I did do some noise reduction in Lightroom, but I have been very pleased with the lack of noise with the 5D iv. My very-unscientific opinion is that the noise at ISO 1600 is comparable to my 6Dii at ISO 800.
The Anhinga is a new bird for me, which I really like. They dry their wings like cormorants do. Top is a female I shot two days ago (5DSR + 100-400mm II @ 560mm) and below a male this afternoon (5DSR + 100-400mm II @ 400mm).
I've finally gotten around to editing photos I took in the spring. I think I took close to 50,000 last April/May. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin I'm able to get a decent amount of shorebird action in the spring and fall! Here are some American Avocets that stopped by for a few hours in early May. 7D mkii / EF600 F4 IS II / 1.4xiii
