Dipper III

By Alan_Coles
Sorry folks but it's another Dipper to share...still on a buzz after last week's shoot. As mentioned the light down at this place was awful...bright sunshine one minute and then trying to get shots of them in a very dark area...add the contrast of white and dark of the bird and you can imagine the number of duffers on my card. This ain't sharp by any means and a shutter speed of 1/40th normally goes straight into the recycle bin but I am hoping I can get away with this as I love the detail on the water and the pose of the bird....the fact I had a tripod perched on a rock in the pool helped Smile Got a few others I would really like to share but will hold them back for a while after this...lol

The detail on the wing feathers is amazing, your lager view now makes your work look even better than before.

Had to wait a while for my UA to become available. A simply superb capture with terrific plumage detail, colours and patterning, grand eye and the beakful of food a bonus. Love the water detail and the dark clean bg tones which isolate this beautiful bird to perfection. Congrats on the HC and other UAs - really well deserved Smile

Oh, what an incredible image! Perfect exposure, DOF and composition! Congratulations on the award! It's well-deserved!


Cheers

Well this is no duffer for sure, sparkling quality and crisp as you could want, never easy with the lighting you describe, so well done you. Amazing that all these people who looked and didn't see what I see.
