    Lovely pose, but there seems to be some noise / loss of detail on the head. Was this backlit?

    Thanks guys
    Abhishek : Aura is bokeh of lit leaves...
    Apana: Yes there is noise and details loss... may be more light would have helped.
    thats why I am dissappointed with 50d..see at ISO 100 noise shows up. but one more factor to this is the is cropping (some 50%)...

    Sir, Why do you blame the great 50D ?

    Loss of details on head may be due to slight breeze and cropping in addition, I suppose.
    Beak and eyes themselves are very eye-catching. I can't move my attention from them. Lovely photo and composition.

    Thanks Sagar...
    After spending 60-70k, if i dont get the quality i want then what should i say
    I agree about breeze and cropping, but I didn't made the statement with this single shot results. I am using 50d for quite some time and after lots of test I feel I am not very happy. I am not saying 50d should be same as Mark I or Mark II but still.....

    We take so many efforts for wildlife photography and if equipment does not support u then frustration is natural .

    I have seen lots of happy faces with 50d, they might be getting results they expect but I am not...by this I am not saying 50d is bad/worst camera, it is good camera but.....

    Hi Kiran,

    Lovely image. Liked the perch and the clear BG.

    About the noise, I think it is more beacuse of the heavy crop (50% as you have mentioned). I have been getting quite good results with 50D at higher ISO and even after cropping 20-30%. This is just my personal experience .
    Regards,
    Mrudul Godbole

    Difficult lighting. The face is not lit. With 50D it is better to shoot with the histogram in the fifth quadrant. If there are a few blinking highlights, then that can be recovered during post processing. That way you will get less shadow noise. You may try that. Generally, a +1/3rd EV in evaluative metering will give you that kind of histogram.

    Lovely pose. I like the composition. It would have been great if it were sitting close to you. After your bird posts, I am sure lot many people will take interest in the birds in bandhavgarh.
