Curlew

Another image shot in RAW, converted to an 8-bit Tiff file and then levels adjusted before applying a 7% blue filter to counteract any yellowing of the 'monochromes'.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/200th sec, f/7, 400mm at ISO 640. Monopod. Distance to subject: c 4m

  1. Very nice! I will have to try your processing methods for some black and white conversions. The results are super.
