A Bird in the Hand

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Robert R Kircher, Jr., Oct 24, 2005.

  1. Shot this yesterday early evening. I was just walking from one spot to
    another and caught this from the corner of my eye. No time to set up the
    tripod so its handheld. Came out better then I expected.

    Good shot - I guess the IS came in real useful for that to look so sharp.

    Was f/11 intentional?

    It is a beautiful shot.

    It's a mockingbird, if you're curious.

  8. No none of the setting were intentional. I was shooting some fall things in
    the afternoon sun light just before, and was waking down a path to another
    location and saw the bird. So I just lifted the camera and got off a few
    shots before he flew away. The other shots were as you'd expect, motion
    blur etc. This was the one lucky shot.

  10. I tend to agree but I seem to have mine with me all the time. :-/

  11. Well it did go through a round of sharpening in C1 but it was pretty decent
    prior to C1.

    And yes, I like IS very much. ;-)

    No time to boost the ISO either? In any case, it turned out very nice -
    especially for hand-held.

  13. To be honest Brian, I didn't even pay attention. I didn't even realize the
    ISO and shutter was SOOO slow until I got home.

    Certainly IS saved the shot in this case.

  15. Absolutely no doubt about that. Although, I did this one hand held too (w/
    the aid of IS) http://www.pbase.com/rkircher/image/50150312 Notice how
    sharp the small kiddy rides are in the back ground.

    You don't need to sell me on IS that's for sure.

  16. Great shot! I love pictures of fairs and theme parks at night.

  17. So it's just me that find the picture very fake? I am NOT saying that you
    photoshopped it completely, but it looks photoshopped.

  18. All I can tell you is that it never saw Photoshop. The only thing I used
    was Capture One to do the RAW conversation and within that process I applied
    some sharpening, color adjustment, and lightened it up some.

    Ya know, I was thinking the same thing.

    Maybe he could post the original with no conversion? Or at least a jpeg
    with the EXIF data still in place. Though that can be manipulated too.

    Why does he have to prove it wasn't photoshopped anyway, you either like the
    end result or you don't! He used an IS lens, isn't that cheating as well as
    he had the help of that technology to present such an image?
