"Whitecap"



I rarely shoot an image up to the standards of this board. This one might make the cut.

Nicely shot and interesting specimen of whatever it is. I don't recall ever seeing a post of this bird,David.

Hi David. Thanks for posting -- the picture really does need to be viewed large to see the unique detail in the face and feet.

Have you considered cloning or cropping out the 2 dark spots on the bottom. If I were you I'd also experiment with adding a bit more sky to the left hand side just so that that wing tip isn't clipped by the edge of the frame.

Take care, and keep on clicking!!

I wanted to post the frame as I caught it. I can work through the issues in PS, but did minimal processing on my 11 inch Mac on the boat. The bird is a Whitecap Albatross, has a wing span about the same as mine, 2 meters. This is taken inside of Shelter Islands on Doubtful Sound (which is actually a Fjord). Albatross are amazing birds. Southern Royals (endangered) are about 50% larger than the Whitecap and have wingspan of 3 meters. I have some pisc of Southern Royals, but nothing like this. I also got some good shots of Shy Albatross off the southern coast of Tassie. Again, nothing this good.

What's wrong with the wing, other than I clipped it slightly. I actually like that fact. It reminds me of where I got the shot--bouncing around on the rear deck with one hand on the boat so I could stand.

David

Very nice-the light coming through the webbed feet is a great addition!
