Malabar pied hornbill shot by NiKon D500, at 600 mm by Sigma 60-600 Lens, ISO 1250, 1/1250, spot metering. Though the light was good, I feel there are grains and not very sharp image. The branch is an obstruction here but since the direction was such couldnt help. The eyes are clear though and I have the cropped the picture also. Sir… My question is 1. How to get sharper image in such cases and 2. Can more editing can be done to make the pic more appealing.
taken at f/8
This image was taken shot with a Nikon D500 460 mm Zoom, Af-C , ISO 1250, f5.6, S 1/40 Hand held . I was fortunate not to have a shake. I tried the Group Area focus this time instead of Single focus for the first time. I know that the picture could have been better as there are some distractions. Any suggestions to improve on this will be appreciated.
Hi Sudhir, Bar Headed Goose in flight : Nikon D7100, Nikon 55-300, @300mm, f5.6, 1/1600, ISO400 : This is handheld with 55-300 @300mm. This was shot from a small boat at Bhgwan but was sufficiently still in water. I had waited to see this feathers formation when these beauties land and tried to chose one when its neck/neak/eyes came out of that shape. My problem with this – 1. in flight – not tack sharp as wished (is it due to shooting at full 300mm and the object was a little far say around 20metres) 2. shutter speed – is it sufficient (1/1600) 3.the colours – contrast – did not get that beautiful as it seemed to naked eye 4. missing wow factor – what could have been ? the sky was dull and had no clouds or any effect , also the horizontal separation line. what can be done ? is crop the only solution ? Please let me know what could have been achieved and is missed and must be improved.
