[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I decided to set up a stage for the birds to feed from and had a piece of white hardboard from B&Q (approx 2) nailed to an old pallet I acquired. The exposure wasn't too easy as the sun kept dissapearing behind the clouds. I sat in a home made hide in the garden for hours and got lots of great shots, this is one of the best. A white background might not appeal to all but I wanted the shots like this to do some college work with. Overall I'm very pleased with the outcome. I shoot birds at 1600 ISO all the time as I get great depth of field, then I use RawShooter to process the final images, the noise reduction tool in RawShooter is fantastic.
ISO 1600
Noise reduction: RawShooter 2006
