Gorgeous detail of Arthur... well done Alan.
Such vibrant colour and such a proud looking bird. Stunning capture Alan. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2013........Sandy
It's good to see Arthur again, Alan, I've missed him A very happy and peaceful festive season to you. Carol
Alan I noted some of your settings
white balance colour temperature colour filter. the reason I ask is when I take Kingfishers they always seem to be over coloured and blured will this setting stop this from happening ?
Fantastic colours and superb detail in all the feathers again Arthur almost looks like he is posing for his picture to be taken. Have a great Christmas - Bob
The white balance I used was 5700K, never use auto white balance outdoors.
1/100 to 1/125 for a stationary kingfisher.
at least 5.6 or more for a 300mm lens.
Keep the ISO as low as pos near 100. for detail, I have little noise at 2500 but loose detail.
always use a tripod with spikes dug in the ground and a remote for static shots, use live view and do not touch the viewfinder, or camera.
Your' photos are very good but, we always want better. I have on order a better lens, which should arrive any day now.
Another excellent shot of Arthur, Alan, the detail and colours so well recorded as ever.
brilliant capture, .. clean and tack sharp
Your kingfisher shots are breathtakingly beautiful. Neil.
New lens coming Alan ?????????
An excellent capture Alan, spot on angle and tones.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas
Arthur looking very spic and span!! Happy Christmas Alan.
