Question – have I over post processed this?? EXIF 1/50 at f/5 ISO 1250. India-Portfolio-129
Hi ! Here is my picture Lucky Stripes 🙂
Shot with Canon 100-400 at 400 mm, 400 ISO 1/2500 f 5,6 Post processed on Lightroom mainly contrast, sharpness and vibrance Happy Tigers
And here’s the new one I wanted to post! Enough tigers! How about some deer? EXIF: 400 mm, 1/40 at f/5.6, ISO 640 (strange – I have no idea why the ISO is a wierd number). Just did basic exposure and dehazing in LR with a close crop on the deer. Because they form a line, I cropped so they are in the middle, but bottom third. 2017-014_103
Hi Joy ! Maybe the ISO is weird because you were on automatic ISO ? Strange indeed 🙂 Lovely picture. How much have you cropped it ? I would maybe try to put some space to the right to follow the direction the deer is looking at.
Hi! I did crop out some of the grass and I can always put more in with content aware. Will try 🙂
Another tiger action shot for fun. Same EXIF as before, but with some level adjustments. 2017-014_063
Choti Tara’s two sub-adult kids. Cropped to remove some of the really dark shadows and really bright highlights and to move the cubs to more traditional left and right “thirds”. EXIF: Canon 7D MK II, 1/320 at f/5.6, 400 mm, ISO 800. My settings were wrong with an overexposure of 2/3rds of a stop so I adjusted exposure, highlights, shadows and then just a bit of the yellow tint in LR. 2017-014_058
Excellent action captured Joy. Love the interaction here. 1/320 is a bit slow shutter speed to capture this and you can see the blurriness around the legs and in the water splash. Also you should have watched out for the tail. Have you cropped it off or not captured in the original image?
Also, I went ahead and edited it a bit. Reduce the brightness a bit (use levels and the technique of holding the at key to correct highlights and shadows). Overall lovely image. 2017-014_058-process
Thanks! I like the edit – I have to go play around with levels some more. I’ve been relying on the basic controls in LR. The tail is missing from the original (sorry!) not purposely cropped out. I will find another photo with complete tiger in it.
Cubs at play in the water, i saw this one cub moving towards the last one and waited for this very moment in the water. A bit grainy for my taste, but thats what i managed to salvage due to the low lighting and distance. sonam_cubs (1 of 1)
Hi Premal – What’s the EXIF? Personal preference, but I would have straightened it since with this crop, you have horizontal layers and the brightest one (ripples in the water) appears “crooked” and bothers my brain. Also, is the image good enough to crop out some of the grass and move the cubs to the lower third of the frame?
Joy, yes i have straightened the picture, i did not notice while posting since i just wanted to upload the pic over here to see if it works, as for cropping it further, the image itself is not that good to begin with, its @ high iso and because of low light lots of graining, so the further i crop the more grains are visible. Not the best of the images to post, but as I said I was experimenting with the uploading stuff.
Exif – > 1/320 @ f/5.6 480mm focal length, iso 4000
Still a great image especially at iso 4000!

Hello everyone! Testing my access to the group 🙂
The fantastic group of our recently concluded Tadoba Photography Learning Tour. I had a great time interacting with all of them and sharing my photography knowledge. We had some great sightings and the accommodation / food was awesome.
Looking forward to seeing all their images in this group.
