  • Common Redpolls

    I followed a little group of redpolls on the lough shore last Sunday morning, we had lovely low winter sunlight and the blue of the lough water is in the background. I could've got closer, but these little birds look better in my opinion with a wee bit of environment in the shot :

        Yes brilliant to nab these beauties.

        Even though you (and me) like to see them in their natural surroundings I felt this one could go in centre stage.
        They all looked a bit under exposed...maybe on the minus ex comp side - so just a quick slide in levels sorted it.
        Hope you don't mind me messing with this-will remove if you want.

          Danny,
          they are really lovely shots...how do you get such wonderful pictures? What lens did you use...if I could get anywhere near this sort of picture i would be well chuffed.

                Only getting to do some replies now guys, sorry for the delay! Thanks for all the comments, they're a great little bird and not hard to get close to if you catch them feeding when they are not paying much attention to whats round them.

                No worries on the edit Ringyneck, I always underexpose, its a bugbear of mine, just something ingrained into me to avoid blowing anything out :/


                For those not wanting to click flickr, shot on e-5 and sigma 50-500mm, at a range of focal lengths, and mostly at :
                Exposure 0.002 sec (1/640)
                Aperture f/9.0
                Focal Length 500 mm
                ISO Speed 200

                Thanks again!
