    Birds of North Australia

    Some of our best birds are on display at the Wildlife Park which makes photography a lot easier for those who are short on time. Some are in aviaries and others are displayed by rangers at feed times. Here are a few from yesterdays visit with the family. C&C welcome

    Hi Wayne

    You've got some nice birds there. Numbers 5 and 6 are my pick - very good. The only comment I have is that the images are not as sharp as they might be, particularly the first three.

    Hi Wayne,

    Did you shoot these jpg?
    I ask because there are many with blown highlights and raised black points that need some PP attention.

    I like the compositions on all but #4, where unfortunately the subject is facing the wrong way

    I am a frequent zoo/wildlife park shooter myself

    Hi Dave, always shoot in RAW. It was a very sunny day so hard to be spot on with the detail except for a few shots inside. No 4 had an upright branch to the right but I still like the effect that the log gives to it. Can you offer any specific advice regarding the PP. It's not my strong point.

    Thanks for the feed back Dave. It's always hard focusing on a moving bird but no excuses for No 1. I do tend to struggle in strong light for some reason and dont know what that reason is. It was 38 degrees. Any thoughts on why this is?
