    Default Fulmar in Flight

    Canon 1DX

    ISO 1000

    This is one from my time last weekend with the Fulmars in my hometown. The BG is flowering gorse bushes, growing on the cliff. Since I stepped up to the 1DX, I find it better, locking onto BIF, against a dark BG, even with the 1.4 attached on a Mk1 lens.

    Lovely shot Will, perhaps a little sharpening round the would not go amiss.
    I see a magenta and blue cast in the wings, suggest select fulmar, HS layer, desaturate Blue and maybe some Magenta.
    I agree with your comments on the 1DX -quite simply the best camera I have ever owned....just wait till you get the 500 MkII and the 2xTC III I think you will be amazed all over again.
