White Bird - Bali Starling

By salja03
Not an exciting title, but I think the shot is quite noce. Taken at the London Zoo a month ago... Am keen to hear people's comments, as I am not normally into photographing birds (hence the lack of proper naming!).

Taken at ISO1000 200mm f5.6 @ 1/60sec

A fine shot considering the difficulty in getting detail in the all white bird. You should try more birds.

Thanks folks - exposure was indeed an issue - I took a set of braceted shots, then adjusted slightly in Photoshop RAW to get the highlights without losing detail.... finiky, but I think it worked. thankyou for the kind words Smile

This is a Bali Starling, and an excellent shot of one, too! Well done on retaining some detail in those white feathers! Might be worth while trying to clone out the leg-ring, though...
