    Default Prince of Bandipur#5

    I completely messed up on this image, while shooting this guy my program dial knob that was set to Aperture Priority shifted to Shutter Priority. At least 15 images went for toss, whatever I managed to recover I am sharing. So this is a learning for all of us to ensure we don't make this mistakes on field. This is the 3rd time it has happened with me while shooting a tiger

    Sharing another portrait of this handsome...

    This image looks quite nice. One cannot guess how much details you recovered without seein the original, but from the SS iy is evident that what you did is no mean task :-) Is it possible to preset a decent shutter speed, say 1/250 or 1/320 sec in Tv mode so that if at all a goof up like this happens in decent lighting again, you won't have to work so hard on PP ?

    I like the eye contact. Wish you had the correct mode while shooting.

    Bhargava,
    One can always use TV and dial a shutter speed. The reason for using AV, is that you decide on the aperture and the camera decides on the highest possible shutter speed. At times you may not want a high depth of field or vice versa, so controlling that via AV mode and awaiting for the highest shutter speed is a good idea. If shutter speed is not good, then one can bump up the ISO.

    This had happened to me when I was using a 10D camera (my first DSLR after shifting from a EOS 1V). I was happily clicking and was wondering how the shutter speed was coming good, as the tiger was in a cave. Then I realised the mistake. We can often pull up the underexposed images during post processing, as this is a raw file, however one gets exposed while printing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    Bhargava,
    Not sure what you did in your second try (image in Pane #7).

    Tried to bring out the face region brighter and ended up overexposing the whites I guess. I had done the second attempt on a laptop, so I am afraid I too am not sure about how it looks on a calibrated screen.

    Thanks

    Thanks all for the comments. The original image is heavily under-exposed, for reference I am uploading original image as is.

    Bhargava - thanks for making the attempt to improve my image, the noise has been reduced for sure however the white have blown

    Now after seeing the original, I can appreciate the processing you've done with great smile

    By the way Praveen sir, how do you think the first one I posted looks?
