CommentSuch a handsome bird - and very cooperative too, enabling quite a close shot. There were a few people moving around the river bed quite close to the bird as well but it was not too concerned and showed no sign of taking to the wing - it would just move on foot if anyone got more than 4 or 5 metres from it. There were a group of these pigeons nearby on the river bank including some young birds but they were much more cautious.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/1000 sec, f8, ISO 800.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where further noise reduction was applied to the main subject using Neat Image plugin for PSE. The background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationGibb River Road crossing, Pentecost River, Kimberley (Western Australia)
