About the Image(s)

I have taken this image of an Egret with a fish catch one afternoon at Mangalajodi Wetlands in the Odisha State of India. Light was quite low and subject was at a distance. So there is lot of cropping for getting a good composition. Needless so say, because of high ISO and cropping, there is some undesired noise.

Taken this image using a Nikon D750 with Tamron SP 150-600mm G2 lens. Settings were f/6.3, 1/2500sec, ISO: 1250, FL: 600mm. Processing is in LR Classic CC

I like the image, sharp and tells the story of the Egret catching the fish. You can clean up some of the noise in Topaz DeNoise Ai. See the image attached. I cleaned up some of the noise and removed the part of the white bird on the left.   Posted: 03/14/2020 10:07:01

I do like your wildlife images Abhijeet! Great timing with this shot, with the fish very clear in the egret's mouth and a nice background. Ideally, the partial egret at the back left shouldn't be there! If you wish to use the image for Nature comps, you obviously won't be able to remove this - frustrating. Stuart's work has certainly made the image much clearer with more punch   Posted: 03/14/2020 14:18:27

Nice image and story. I think some de-noise will enhance the image such as Stuart suggests.   Posted: 03/16/2020 11:54:45

Abhijeet, looking at the original image I can sense that from your vantage point you were caught between the wall and a hard rock in reference of moving to one or the other side to remove the presence of the unwanted additional birds. Your PP is nice and I agree that Stuart's additional adjustments made the image better. If it is not for pure nature, as is our group (Nature +) you could clone out the American Bittern in the background which is competing very strongly with the white egret.   Posted: 03/16/2020 14:42:19
