  • Marwell Zoo critters!

    These are all serious crops, and it was too bright - a heatwave - but we
    were there taking the children out/picnic and I just took the new cam
    E-5 +50-250 lens incase.

    I am NOT proficient with the E-5 yet - I can never find what I want to change,
    where I need to and scrabble around the menu ! I was thinking of Noise reduction and sharpening a bit
    and the contrast/saturation of the Rhino ? What do you think ?

    This dear Cheetah was so cuddly,



    THEN it caught sight of something and head up, alert and claws out !



    The one of my Favourites animals, Rhino ! This time I caught a foot off the ground and could see how their knee bends!

    Hi Nice shots like the rhino, I am quite surprised that you used f10, as f6 to f8 would give a slightly sharper image as f10 you get a slight softening effect due to defraction.

    Nice set of images though.

      As this is looking for perfection thay all look a bit soft to me(possibly as you've crop so much),also lack a bit of contrast.

      Out of interest are these shot a Jpegs or Raw and what editing have you done?
      All the best

        Andy - they are RAW - have been converted to .jpeg and made very small for the web ! I think they are a LOT SHARPER in RAW & tiff - I can post here a high Mb copy in a minute or two ...

            Certainly your last image has more saturation and contrast although still a bit soft, but is this due to the crop? No sign of any noise though.

            The bend in the Rhinos leg is it's wrist, the knee is on the rear leg. Sorry for being pedantic, it comes with being a grumpy old man!

            Regards

              I have to agree with David about it being a little soft, though to me it looks like the focus point as the grass appears sharper in the foreground than it does by the cheetah.

              Marwell Zoo is a great place and I'm sure you and the kids had a great day there, the wife and I visited there on our last holiday at Gosport and I got some decent pics even though I only had the 40-150mm with me at the time.
              Regards Paul.
              One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.

                Re: Marwell Zoo critters!

                Can you repost the rhino using Oly Studio 2 like you did the cheetah? It is a much more colourful and sensibly exposed version.

                In your first post you say you're using a 50-250, then in a later post you mention the Bigma. They are two different lenses right? (Unless you mean that after using the Bigma you'd left aperture at f10 for the next lens ...)

                  I DID ! I shall post the Rhino later "Au Natural"

                  Paul - It is perfectly possible that one of the "little critters we TOOK" knocked my leg ! Work & PLAY do NOT MIX WELL ! But I cannot go with the children, without taking a camera

                  I shall go Saturday and TAKE BIGMA and THEN post new ones HERE !
