Those are both very nice shots Charlie, but the snowy egret image is over the top. I really like it.

make them pay you for photos so you can go full frame. Not much you can really do here. You already have a nice F2.8 lens, so it's an ISO vs. shutter speed game.

You could try layer masking out the backround via a gaussian blur and paint back in your player, but it's time consuming and you may find it difficult to get a natural look unless you're extremely patient and have a comfortable workstation to spend a lot of time on your faves.

Really at this point there's not much you can do short of a much bigger financial investment (ie: switching systems/full frame).

You could try -2/3rds exposure comp and going for a lower ISO then "push" processing, but sometimes that doesn't' pan out depending on lighting/color.

80d may have better processing capabilities as the expense of AF. Pick your poison.... I think the 7d3 / 90d will be a blessing for stuff like this

Luckily I shoot birds outside, so it's much easier to stay in that ISO 100-500 range, but they don't pay very well for photos!!! :mrgreen:

I did a quick edit, Gaussian blur, color channel levels adjustment then painted back the roof area... could do much better if I had the raw image / higher res to start with, but this is what I do with a number of my bird images to remove off subject noise (I have a lot less of it because I shoot birds outside!):

pull image into elements/photoshop, this will work on any version made in the last 20 years.

Open layer pallet
Right click on layer
Duplicate layer
backround copy hit okay
Click on "add layer mask" icon looks like a rectangle with a hole in it

Okay now here is the trick!

There's a blue box highlight on your layer mask, CLICk to the left where your image is, to move that highlighted box over.

THEN, filter...gausian blur.... select 1.3-1.5 pixels.

Oh nooo!!! your whole image is blurrrrryyyyy

Okay now click that blue box thing over to the right so it's highlighting your mask (just the whited out big rectangle)

Now, go select a paintbrush, choose 50 as the size and opacity as 100 just to get the idea

Make SURE the brush color is 100% back by clicking the color selection box on the very bottom.

Now, find your subject you want NOT blurry, and paint him/it back in.

You'll notice that you need to vary the brush size and opacity as you do it.

Best part is that you can layer mask for color / contrast / sharpness / smartfix / really everything, so you then are not limited to global adjustments to images and stuck in the whole "I like this change here, but not here" dilemma.

So you're essentially exchanging time for $ by going this route. A full frame setup like a 5dIV would require you to get access to be closer to the action, but will give you much better noise reduction results in the raw conversation aspect of your processing.

You could also try in lightroom by holding down the ALT button and moving the Masking slider over after you've adjusted sharpness (tony and chelsea northrop have a tutorial on image oversharpening).

OR, you could simply just apply more noise reduction and learn to live with it, then selectively sharpen later....

Many ways to spend hours/years/lifetimes editing.

If you like my bird images, just know I use a very similar sensor in the 70d, and I go the layer mask route in most cases, but it's a major challenge time wise and it takes a long time to make it look seemless.

I think the highlight on the moon should be brighter than the city lights to make it more believable, even if that means you blast out some highlight area slightly...

Love Cedar Wax Wings. I see them often, but rarely close enough to get a decent photo. Your shot is lovely.

We have cedar wax wings migrate through here every spring. I try to get pictures but they never sit still as they constantly move branch to branch feeding on our berries in the trees. Beautiful coloring in the sunlight.

Yeah, he sat still for probably a minute, grabbed about 30 shots. Of course I didn't know what he was just that he was beautiful.
