Pine Grosbeak

Recommended Posts

This is my first Pine Grosbeak taken using a new Jobu gimbal with my Nikon D800e + Sigma 150-600 S combo. The gimbal makes it a joy to shoot fast moving wildlife.

…a new Jobu gimbal…

 

Congratulations on the new acquisition!

 

Indeed, a gimbal head is a must when shooting

with longer lenses and it becomes more impera-

tive at 36.3 MP! … and the Canadian made Jobu

are the ones I use too!

 

Did you apply sharpening on a local adjustment

layer?

Hi Kodiak, I was very grateful to this bird for his kind pose, they are very active fast moving critters. The new gimbal was a real winner, got me a shot I would have missed if not using this fine piece of kit. As for sharpening, I made my usual mistake and sharpened the entire image instead of a local sharpening of the bird. NEXT TIME!!! I promise.

 

Oops! looks like I answered twice on this, it's an age thing! Now to make some coffee and kick-start my brain.

Yes Charlie, my raw file and I can redo it in Capture One, but I need the energy. :unsure:
