I realize why CDS started this thread in the beginning, but given that it seems to be (largely) another photo thread, does it deserve to be merged with the other 100-400 II image thread? One less thread to monitor! :)

lol ,,.. Sam this thread has a life of its own...

I think I posted these when I first joined the forum and bought this 7Dmkll combo? I was never happy with them as the reds were "filled in" and at the time I couldn't figure out why. I had been BIFing and I think I must have left the camera at 1.5 stops STTR which didn't help the reds. I was rather disappointed because this was my first sighting of the bird. :-(

Anyway, it's been raining all day here and the recent conversations regarding lack of detail in reds prompted me to have a play in PS, although I am not all that knowledgeable when it comes to histograms, luminence et al:oops:

They're nowhere near perfect but I've managed to bring our quite a bit more detail than the originals and I don't think I can improve on them further

Yes it was. When we where there one of the employees told us that when boats started gathering in numbers beside the opera house/bridge they could not get the apes back inside for the night. Nothing worked. Extra food, etc. The gathering of boats meant a fire works display would follow.

30D I think.

Great picture. Beautiful colour. The one I went to was the Western Plains Zoo out in Dubbo. They are doing some great conservation work.

I think this pair may well take up residence in my back garden as they've been here every day for the past week. I finally got a shot at the male. :-D

Quite happy with the results at iso 1600

Thanks Eric. They've been battering at my window (mirrored glass) so I put some shade cloth in front of it. One of them managed to get behind the cloth and was stuck so I've had to take it down -? Just googling the cost of an exterior blind! :rolleyes:

4 metres to the female and 6-7 metres to the male and they're about 50 - 60% crops. I have camo netting draped from my deck and always have the camera with me when I'm out there having a cuppa

Do you use Topaz DeNoise to remove any grains? Or any other technique to reduce noise?
The pics look great.
