Eurasian Blue Tit On A Tree

Eurasian Blue Tit

I thought I share a photo of the Eurasian Blue Tit bird again. I shot the winter sometime during the winter. I have no idea why I shot the photo at 1/2000 of a second, maybe because I was outside to take photos of flying birds? But even then the camera setting would have been too fast. I am unhappy with the camera settings that I saw in the metadata and I wish I would have used other settings. The photo is shot at 300mm and I cropped the image to get even closer. I like the composition that I have chosen during the cropping, but I am unhappy with the camera settings and the image quality. While I still like my Tamron 70-300mmm lens, I noticed that some of the images have chromatic aberration, including the photo in this post, but it gets more apparent if I crop the photo. By the way, here is how the photo looked like before the cropping…

  1. Hopefully you will get another chance to phtotograph a Eurasian Blue Tit with your camera on the right settings but at least you had the camera in your hand when you saw it. It is more annoying to miss a photo because you had no camera with you than to take a less than perfect shot.

    • I do agree with this, I am often just happy if I got a photo, because it’s finally just about the subject. That’s why I do often crop my images even if I know that I will lose image quality. 🙂

  2. That’s a very pretty little bird. The same coloration as some of our little warblers, though a different style of bird. Have you checked out the Topaz filters? The de-noise if really good at smoothing out wrinkles when you are heavily cropping. I hear their sharpening filter set is also great, but I’m poor right now. However, I got their “clean” and “denoise” sets and I have to say they really make a BIG difference.

    • I heard about the Topaz filters, but I do currently use the noise reduction slider in Lightroom The noise reduction of Lightroom works pretty well, the original crop looked much worse, it’s just that if you apply too much noise reduction, the picture will become too blurry instead, so that you have to apply sharpening.. I found out you can’t go over the top with those features, or you will add other problems. I assume it’s the same with Topaz? Some features of Photoshop and Lightroom are pretty helpful, it’s just that you need to find a nice compromise and how you use the sliders.
