Common Tern Fishing

A Common Tern fishing at Strumpshaw Fen the other day. In the sixth shot it is completely submerged, apart from the wing tips. It must take a huge amount of strength to haul itself out of the water and fly off again, hopefully with a fish.

E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Common Tern Fishing

Perhaps they are like corks, and bob rapidly to the surface after diving ?

Re: Common Tern Fishing

Thanks Phill. Yes I am quite pleased with them, although I think I need to work on my processing. My colours always look a bit muddy and muted and not clean and vibrant like other shots which I see.

Re: Common Tern Fishing

Cracking set Ron, not easy birds to capture in flight.

How are you processing your images?

Thanks Dave. I am using Affinity Photo and, while the photos look quite good in viewed in that application, when I upload them to the Gallery on this site the colours are often disappointing. I had Lightroom 5 before but had to stop using that when it wouldn't support raw files for E-M1 II.

Have you tried using the Adobe DNG converter Ron?

This would then allow you to edit your images in Lightroom 5.

It may be worth opening a free Flickr account to see how your images look when uploaded there, if they look good there you could link them when you post them here.

Stunning images Ron. You make me wonder whether I should be writing to Father Christmas for the 300!
