Popped down to Warnhamd Nature Reserve for a couple of hours yesterday (one of my favourite places) as I was informed there was an Osprey there but had not seen it. On arrival guys showed me it was sitting on top of a branch in a pine tree but had not moved for over 4 hours. After a while I walked back to the cafe area and just quickly popped into teh hide by the cafe area and there it was flying over. It did a dive but did not catch anything. I think in my excitment I pushed the ISO far to high and therfore my shutter speed was a silly setting. Never mind as that has taught me a valuable lessen and to try and look first or have your camera set up for a moving subject as you walk about? never mind, comments please.

Lovely in-flight capture, Bob. Shame about the ISO. I invariably have to use a de-noise program when using anything above 400 on my D7. I've used Topaz deNoise on a mod.

An extremely fine capture Bob, certainly one that I would have loved to have captured. As for the ISO, I managed to change mine one 'inadvertently' up to 6400 whilst doing a Wedding shoot for a friend. "Luckily they did not want any large prints" GrinGrinGrin

Hi Nathan not sure how much longer he will be at Warnham but just seeing it fly above you made going out and taking photos a real joy. Could not do weddings or anything as would be to nervous besides dont have the equipment or experiance yet- is the person still a friend? ha SmileSmile

Hi Dave, your Modification makes my photo look so much better, I am not sure why I can not achieve this in Photoshop? am I doing something wrong or is the capabilities in PSE9 limited? . Thank you for suggesting using Topaz de Noise I may just download a 30 day trial and try it.

Kind regards

Bob
