"Wild Turkey, Algonquin Park - updated wrt Gerard's comment"
Wed 05-Jun-13 08:49 PM by CK

Mississauga, CA
          

Went up to the Park yesterday to see if we could get some young-moose-with-mom shots. Saw only 1 moose, but we did see this guy(?)/gal(?, and inspired by Richard's (Dubes) wild turkey shot, I thought I'd post it.

D7100, 1/60 sec at f/10 ISO 250, Sigma 150-500 at 230, handheld. Very slight crop and some light PP in Lightroom.





D7100, 1/30 sec at f/10 ISO 250, Sigma 150-500 at 300, handheld. No crop, but some light PP in Lightroom. Kinda wished I'd put the polarizer on to cut some of the glare from the feathers. Oh well, it is what it is.



Update:
Based on Gerard's comment (see below), I've toned down the highlights a couple of times using the adjustment brush in LR4.4 (only once on the head). Have I gone too far? any preferences?




Take care,
CK

Chuck
very nice pictures but what I cannot get over is the fact that you took them in the park - now this is the place where I worked as a Park Ranger in the late 1960s on the West Gate where wolves howled every night - turkeys!!! god we didn't even know what wild tukeys were then and there were no cardinals yet in Ottawa and now turkeys in the "park" definitely there are significant climatic changes going on - am curious in which part of the park were these birds,
simply amazing, take care
Michael

Hi, Michael,
I know what you mean. I saw my first turkey in the park about 3 or 4 years ago and was totally shocked. These were taken right along side the highway at about km 36-37, right beside the Kearney Lake campground, but I have seen them from there to around the Arrowhon Road (I think). You must have some pretty cool memories of the park -- I've heard wolves howl a few nights, but "every night" must have been really amazing!!
Take care,
CK

There was a trail from Lake St. Peter into the park, which used to be named the MacKenzie Trail, but now has been absorbed into the Hastings Heritage trail system. Anyway, I was hiking toward the park around 1970 and came around a corner only to see a troop of wild turkeys! They were, of course, extinct in Ontario, so I was in shock. Anyway, as it turns out this area was chosen as part of the re-introduction program.

P.S. Nice shots CK.

Jim

never knew that Jim even though I canoed most of the park and fished it lots, but then I left Ontario in 1973, though I go back to my family cottage just outside the park from time to time for a couple of days - it seems up here in the northern part of BC time seems to stand still and outside of the glaciers receding we see few very obvious changes , though the weather overall is better then in the mid 70s when we first arrived

- nice even exposure on #1 resulting in a very nice shot

- if you have PS-CS? why not try using the "shadow/highlight" slider, under "adjustments" in the "image" tab and knock back a bit of highlights on the birds back in #2.
The detail is all there and you'd be surprised how it can really 'even' the exposure in this shot to be like a polarizer as well.
Love the head!

Thanks for the comments, Gerard. I've tried to adjust the highlights a bit, as shown now in the last picture in the edited version of the original post. Any thoughts?

Much better Chuck!

When all the details are in an image there's so much which can be done in PP. Your right about the polarizer but on the longer lenses they're impractical. I generally rely on -EV to try and make sure the camera retains the detail and fix it in the digital darkroom through "burning" or Image Adjustment in CS-PS or LR.

Always a pleasure to see improvement!

I think your did a fine job of 'taming' the high-lights on the feathers. And, BTW, nice, colorful necklace. stan

Stan, Mark and Glen,
Thanks for taking the time to comment. Yeah Glen, I think I'm kind of partial to the portrait as well -- and usually I like a little more habitat in my shots. Thanks to Gerard for getting me to take another try at the highlights. I'd reduced them globally, but another couple runs with the adjustment brush did the trick.

Take care,
CK

Chuck, lots better.

I think the first shot would be perfectly fine for certain purposes (as somebody said, showing the habitat).

A portrait shot on the bottom one may be useful, too.

Hi CK

Very nice images, all. I can really appreciate wild turkeys, since we are blessed with so many of them here in W Tennessee. They are difficult to capture due to their bobbing heads, I think.

I assume these are the same birds that we have here in Tn.

They appear to be pouts (you may know this).

Take care,

Tom

Thanks for the comments. Not as enjoyable as capturing moose, but at least these I got to add some decent turkey shots to my files.
