Here in New Zealand it is now mid-autumn.

After missing a nice BIF of a Kea @ 400 ISO I thought try 1600 ISO which should freeze it !!!

Pentax K10D and Tamron 70-300 @ 300mm. 1/3000 sec @ F5.6 AP & Multi segment.

Wow, I would say that did it.

Double WOW! What a beautiful bird.

Thanks Tom & Harriet.

This has been a main BIF target for about 2 years since I started digital !!!

Have heaps of "Nearly" pix but quite like this result.

Have just done a couple of re-edits of other 1600 ISO keas from yesterday.

Here is first one.

And just one more.

Originally I started this and previous shot on PSE with Levels layer but more and more I find that result a bit too harsh so just go thro various autos select the one I like best and fine tune from there !!!

You captured almost a sculptural pose:cool: I wonder what software you use for noise removal. I use the Neat Image about which I am very pleased ; )

Ian Mc Apr 26, 2008 7:14 PM

I use two different noise removals, the free Imagenomic Noiseware usually on the Landscape setting and more recently purchased Noise Ninja after a trial run.

Most often I use Noise Ninja as in these pix but if doesn't look as I want it will try Noiseware.
