Nice shot..Especially second image..These are the sorts of lush colors past digital sensors of old really couldnt come close to when comparing with transparancy film colors like Kodachrome reds and Fuji Velvia greens and thats even with some help from PP ...That was of course till the 5DMk2 and 3 came around and then things started to change ..Case in point are the greens in image 2....they look so lush and natural and really help to contrast the Cockatoos whites and reds...

Thanks Clipper, there's been a bit of PP on these, but only a bit of light adjustment. As you say, cameras are getting better all the time.

These are outstanding.

Again simply outstanding Shorty. I must admit I really have not much idea with photographing birds, but I think you have inspired me to get my camera out of it's bag and head out to the scrub.

Or Maybe the external 1.4x as well as the internal one ( if the 784mm in the exif is correct ) wide open is the culprit ... I wonder if it would sharpen up a bit at f9 or 10?

Nice shot though, I am yet to get a kingfisher, and yes this thread needs some more input....will dig out some I have posted elsewhere and post them here.


A coupla bodies and a few lenses

Nice & sharp Lyn2011, lighting is just right. They make great subjects don't they.

Wow nardes, the Robin (?) is spectacular!

The second one is just as good a photograph, but the Robin is a stand out!

Well done Dennis. I read about Oxley Creek so have been there twice but no luck with birds at all other than a magpie and some ibis at the dam
