Firstly, thank you everybody for their comments and votes on yesterday's osprey, and a big thanks to Pete for the HC.
Anyway, today's one was also ISO 1600 and I'm quite pleased with it. I liked the pose on this one. It was VERY early in the morning (about 5.30).
As usual LARGE is MUCH better if you have the time to take a peek

Taken in a perfect manner.
Brilliantly timed - have you done any post processing?
Thanks both - a good question Karen.
On this particular bird I have not really done much:
I did a little saturation tweaks, removing a lot of blue, which was overtaking the picture. Then I darkened the wings a little bit, which luckily were not blown out. I reduced the noise in Lightroom, cropped, added my frame and removed the distracting 'half-reflection' at the bottom.
Wonderful capture Josh.
Something not quite right with the white under the wing here Jonah, they have taken on a very grey and flat appearance as if you have tried in some way to bring back the exposure.
If you do need to bring back an area of white it needs to be done very carefully and really only to the least amount that makes the image "acceptable". If you push beyond this then you get these sorts of tell-tale signs.
That said I know how difficult the exposure was, and especially when there was a large amount of white showing, which was made doubly worse when the area of background was particularly dark.
Not sure from what I saw on the back of your camera that you are making the most of these shots with your post-processing. I'd be happy to process one of your choosing and see what I can do with it, given that I apply very little processing to my own shots it would be interesting to see if it makes any difference.
Anyway a vote for capturing the moment, the technical side in camera and post are much easier to learn than the anticipation to press the shutter at the right moment.
Congrats on a beautiful capture well done.
Beautiful shot, well done.
I would have been very pleased to make this capture.
Great capture. Ann
