next to your camera system in a full camouflage outfit... Very impressive setup.

I understand that it's less weight, but it's still a lot of gear to take into the field... as I guess you also carry a second camera and lunch wink.gif.

Thanks for the look at your equipment...

the scope and the tripod are carried together. the rest along with D7100 attached to 40-800 go in the think tank back pack along with the lunch.
Enjoy your spring time in Tokyo. Flowers must be blooming now.

Holy crap Harish!!!! Fantastic detail. Excellent and inspiring.

A question about the detail in the 1st photo. I took some shots of a great heron yesterday and a lot of the white feathers were pretty much washed out.
Nowhere near the detail in your photos. Assuming a generally sharp photo, how did you get so much detail in the white feathers? Adjusting the exposure?

Mostly

I go by the histogram and over exposure setting so, when whites are blown I dial down the EV for that particular shot. Also in LR there is a bar for adjusting highlights. I use it in almost all images where the subjects have white feathers.
Thanks.

Thanks for the info ...............

I need to start using my blinkies more to alert me. I used to do it all the time but lately, I haven't noticed the problem until I get home....too late to do much about it.
Also I'm sure these kinds of problems are much easier to fix when shooting RAW............which I don't do......but that's another story.
