Comment:Lake Wendouree at Ballarat is a wonderful place to get up close and personal with the many waterbirds that live there. This Black Swan was busy preening and happy to have me sit close by and take some shots hoping for one like this.
Equipment:Canon 5D Mark iv
Canon 200-400 f4
iso 1600 - 1/640 - f5.6 - 400mm - manual exposure - hand held with monopod
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction on bird. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements CC) where the background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened.
Location:Lake Wendouree Ballarat (Victoria)
