ISO 10,000 for this one! Amazing what modern sensors can do. All processing done in Lightroom. 3 tips for high ISO bird pics...one, expose to the right (overexpose slightly), two, don't crop too much and 3, process on the dark side if it suits the photo and mood. 3rd party noise reduction software can also improve the photos...I just wanted to show what could be done with the basics in Lightroom.

This is an American Redstart, taken in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Simon that is a beautiful American Redstart shot. Not easy to get them still like that.

Such a great photo, Simon! I'm jealous because, I've never been able to get a male American Redstart. Canada is lucky because it's the destination for all of these awesome birds, we're just flyover country ;-)a

Very beautiful, incredible looking bird Archi. You've probably shown me more birds from your trip that I haven't seen, than birds from the US that I have seen. :mrgreen: I can't believe how many different, beautiful, and unusual bird species you've posted here lately...very impressive. The only downside that I can see, is the incredible amount of time you've had to spend on the computer, getting all these birds through photoshop, and properly organizing them. I, for one, have really been enjoying all your posts of these incredible bird species. Thanks.

Very impressive Simon, how nice that shot came out at such a high ISO. Excellent work.

Thought I would post this one again - I have worked on it slightly different, I have just focused on the duck - used the mask and just increased some sharpening and clarity on the duck, and done no other work on the over all picture a part from cropping slightly.
