    Hi folks ...
    First bird shooting in my backyard with a halfway decent output .
    Birds attracted with a simple feeder and hope they would land on the twig .... instead of the feeder .
    No tricks .... no hide just sitting still .
    The outcome was not great in terms of technical keepers ....
    The crop is a bit loose ... but I stay mostly away from large cropping , as I do pixel peep at times . So no pixel bashing ... like many others do . Just personal preferences

    Canon EOS 1Dx II
    EF 500 IS L II + 1,4 TC III
    HH

    F 5,6 ; Iso 3200 ; 1/1600 sec

    Processed with DPP 4 and PSCC 2021 ; removed a wire from the twig

    Thanks for looking and commenting to my previous thread

    Cheers Andreas

    I'd take your "halfway decent" any time... Love the perch (with lichens), the pose, the framing and of course the PP. TFS

    Andreas, that is one of the very best processed images of Goldfinch I have ever seen. Colours details and luminance on the plumage - doesn't get better than this! Let's see some more!

    Hi Andreas, beautiful bird, nicely shown. I am with Jon that the post processing looks great. I might have cropped the image differently. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks folks ... for your kind comments .

    Jon .... that was all . Subject sat there for a few seconds .... have some more sitting on the feeder , but useless as the feeder tube is somewhat ugly
