NIGHT FLIGHT OF THE WOOD STORK by Tom Buckard

May 2022 - NIGHT FLIGHT OF THE WOOD STORK

About the Image(s)

Image taken early morning from an observation tower. Wood storks were landing all over. Using a Better Beamer I was able to blow out the background and still illuminate the Wood Stork which was a distance off. Used several filters in photoshop to make it pop.

Equipment Info: Nikon D800, 70-200 F2.8, Manual exposure, F8, 1/1250 of a second and a Better Beamer.

Well done. I like the sharpness and the saturation. It does make the details pop.   Posted: 05/11/2022 11:10:38

Tom, this is a really great capture. The colors and details in the stork are beautiful. The one thing I don't like as much is the white edge around the bird. To me it gives a slight feeling of the bird being pasted onto the background.   Posted: 05/11/2022 15:47:05

Do you think there is any way to not have the white there?   Posted: 05/16/2022 09:28:39
