    Default Egyptian Goose feeding portrait at crazy high Iso

    Hi folks was digging through old files .... and tumbled across this image taken at a local lake . The guys are used to human presence and even causing problems to the resident species by attacking them and chasing them off . So their eggs will be exchanged to artificial ones by local authority, to prevent them from successful breeding .
    Image was taken in 2015 , just for keeping me practising .... during a low photographic period .
    And for sure to push boundaries ... as you can see with my used techs .

    Canon EOS 1Dx
    EF 500 IS L II + 1,4 TC III
    HH lying flat on the ground

    F 5,6 ; ISO 20.000 ( no Typo ) ; 1/ 1250 sec


    Processed with DPP 4 ( NR turned Off ) and PSCC 2020 ; NR with Neat image ; a second round to the low res file at the end . The color intensity might not be everyones taste ... and can be easily reduced .

    Thanks for watching

    Cheers Andreas

    Andreas:

    Amazing noise control! I sure it was properly exposed to begin with, but still pretty remarkable. I like the point of view,composition, DOF as well. Yes, perhaps a bit oversaturated, but fun.

    Cheers

    Agree with Randy here Andreas, however the ISO doesn't surprise me, as it's what we have been saying within the Wildlife Forum for a number of years now, but I think some of the Avian bods may be pleasantly surprised. Personally I would loose the old leaf on the LHS.

    Lets hope the MKIII lives up to it's predecessor, of which I have reservations on, as I do believe in the Brand irrespective.

    Thanks Randy & Steve for your comments .

    Randy - for sure a perfect file to begin with . Shot perfectly ETTR with a ever so slightly clipping in the brightest HL . Shooting ETTR is the key to control the noise ....

    Steve - yes we do tell for years now ... over there .... still not fully successful . Had a quick go yesterday .... at least from my POV the MK III is cleaner in terms of noise .... but i did not make comparison . Just a gut feeling when looking at the files .... but DPP is painfully slow with the new files !!!!!

    Thanks Andreas

    not the prettiest looking bird but a nice head shot and I like the low angle too. I am not surprised because most cameras can produce great results when doing a head shot at point blank...

    Hi Andreas, I love the vibrant look of the image, great low angle and good details at this super high ISO. Nicely shot and processed!

    I really like this low-angle headshot! It's very creative. The colors are also really nice. File looks good for such high ISO as well.

    Nice shooting angle on this one. Love all that green. Image quality looks great for the ISO. Nice and sharp.

    Hi Andreas, amazing detail for such a high ISO - well done. I like the low angle, and a subject that is under estimated that can produce great flight images.
