About the Image(s)

This photo was taken at a local park and pretty much right out of the camera. I did a little tighter cropping and made some adjustments in LR. The camera was my D500, ISO 800, f/5.6 @ 200mm with my Nikon 200-500 zoom lens.

Richard, this is an amazing capture! I'm curious about your shutter speed. It must have been fairly high to get such a sharp image with the flying bird. And, your f/5.6 did a great job separating the bird from the background. I really like it!

Since I find the strong colors of the background a bit distracting, I tried making it into a B&W. I don't know what you'll think of it, but here it is. Smiles....

Nice shot of a great blue heron. I love to shoot flying birds. The background is busy and some of the wooden limbs are the same color as the heron; especially the curved limb in the upper left; I would have cloned it out.   Posted: 10/16/2018 11:41:46
