I am very much aware of what thread it is posted in. Read his comment on the photo, gives the impression that it is with the PL 100-400 or some other Panasonic lens.
Ah. Since I use DxO PL4, I wasn't confused. I thought the lack of EXIF info had you wondering.

Hi all,

This is my very first post to the forum! I've long been doing landscape/cityscape as well as macro, and am just starting on bigger life. For its 'maiden voyage', I took my 300 F4 to Inner Farne Island to shoot some puffins among other sea birds. I probably overdid the s.s. (set it to 1/3200 and forgot to change it back to something slower since we only had one hour in the island and got super into it), hence the ISO is not as good as it could have been. Regardless, I'm super happy with the quality of the resulting images!

PP was done on mobile Lightroom (mostly cropping, exposure adjustments and default noise reduction) as I'm a Linux user, hence having no access to Topaz AI or desktop Lightroom.

Here are some of my favourite puffin shots, I'll add some non-puffin pics on another post later on.

Thanks for your comments, I hope to become an active member of the mu-43 community!
Cheers!

Welcome to the forum. I'm also a Linux user and have really enjoyed using Darktable. Have you tried it? The latest version (3.6) produces fantastic images.

Hi Steve, thanks for the welcome and your suggestion!

I have to admit I've been a bit lazy about learning Darktable (I believe there's some debate between it and RawTherapee for Linux users). It seems to be extremely powerful, I just need to find some time to learn to use it, but now that you've recommended it to me, I have additional motivation to do so.

Do you know if it DT handles noise / colour noise reduction adequately? I try not to overdo it in LR, as I'd rather have the grain (which I kinda like, as long as it's not too distracting) than end with a detail-less image. Still, I find that some colour noise reduction is absolutely necessary (LR's .2 default does the trick most of the times).

Cheers!

Shot through my dining room window. I used a little post processing to pull down the highlights a bit and bumped the saturation a little as compensation for the harsh sunlight. A little crop to 16x9 for composition but no sharpening.

Edit: The original is 4945 pixels tall but you can't see that here. I'm continually amazed at how much detail this lens and the 20MP sensor can resolve. The original clearly shows each strand of wire in the cables and the lettering on the equipment.

Shots of (1) a green heron and (2) a blue dasher dragonfly eating a bug were taken this morning with an EM1 Mk II and 300mm lens with 1.4x tele-converter.

New Holland Honeyeaters are tiny, fast, acrobatic and entertaining to watch. Two photos at the end show their "prey". They are challenging to shoot... next hardest to swallows. EM1X, 300 Pro and EE1 finder.
