Eurasian Jay

By Emilpix
One of the more colourful of the crow family. Normnally very wary and often known as the watchman of the woods but can become quite confiding when it becomes used to those who venture into its territory.

We live near woods and regularly get a pair of Jays in our garden. They are quite wary though.

A very nice shot indeed. Nothing Iwoukd change. Well done. Is the focal length not 450? Nikon crop factor I, I think, 1.5.

Its quite a ncie shot. I dont know if your lens is a VR model or not, - Im assuming it isnt.

If thats the case, the shutter speed was too slow, (1/450 would be needed) but its still not bad. The area thats not really sharp is the eye, and that can be sharpened in post processing.

I would re frame the shot to have some more space above the head. and along with sharpening, a slightly warmer colour balance.


All done in the mod.

Thank you Willie. You are correct in that the lens isn't the new VR version - I should be so lucky! You too are correct Paul, I'm afraid though that I neglected to mention that a 1.4 TC was attached. Crop factors aren't catered for in EXIF as far as I know. Thank you for your comment also.
