Ian, if you had a RAW file for that shot, you'd be impressed with how much more detail you can cajole out of it and get better saturation and contrast. Especially if you shot it f/8-f/11.
For me, sunny shots pretty much mean f/8 to f/11 to get optimal sharpness. Even the Sony 75-300 on an A200 can be made to perform well and get a good pic.


Thank you skm.sa100. As Addy says it was shot at f10 and I probably do have a RAW file somewhere!

Thanks Fred. I can see one but am struggling to find more. I must admit I have never spotted it before!

Honey buzzard (part of series from a short nature walk).
There was a pair of them, but happy to just have caught one of them.


A99ii + 70-400G

Edit: I just learned it is a honey buzzard (wespendief) and not a common buzzard (buizerd)

Beautiful shot and timing Fred. I love the sharp bird and the majestic skies. Very well done.

Great capture Fred, the evening (or morning?) colours in the background just makes the shot extra special
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thanks Pieter! I must confess, I cheated a bit with the sky in PP. It was a grey and dull background when I shot it

What do you mean by "cheated"? Did you replace it, did you colour it or did you just adjust the saturation? Cheating can be so much

Good picture!

Thanks Domien and Addy!

@ addy: I replaced the background, but don't know if these are morning or evening colours as Pieter asked .

Ian, just push the contrast and/or clarity sliders and they will pop out on your screen

There was a day not too long ago (in my world of time), before AF, that capturing a bird-in-flight represented quite an accomplishment. It still is for me. Although I have many more failures than successes, when I get it right, it's very satisfying.

Super well done Woodrim! I really like the dark background too.
