Brazilian colours

Captured this Brazilian toucan at the bird sanctuary at the Iguassu falls. This fella really want to pose and was waited patient till I had the right camera setting, focus et cetera...really a nice chap!

Used high ISO rating of 640 ASA to have more "space" in aperture and shutter speed. Used fill flash which caused the catch light in the toucan's eye.

PP work, not much, shot in raw, adjusted a bit of the clarity and contrast, converted to jpeg, used a small crop, resized and sharpened using USM, add frame.

Hi Hnas,

A great capture of the colorful toucan. Wonderfully sharp, with nice background blur. It was nice that he posed so long for you, most birds aren't that cooperative.

Best regards,
Werner

Hello Hans! Nice capture of that psychedelic bird! :-) Sharp shot, good exposure and a fine composition. The noise is not bad at all for 640 ISO. Well done!

Hi Hans,
you captured the colours & details well,a vibrant image.He looks a little top heavy [not your doing,natures I guess]
One would think the weight & size of his beak, would cause him balance problems. He may be located, just a touch to near the right edge,looks a little tight there,yes no?

Hi Hans, A beaut colourful image of this most spectacular bird. The details are so sharp, around its eye and chest feathers. Your settings, including the use of flash certainly paid dividends. TFS. Murray.

Superb portrait of this toucan
