'Common' Loon at ISO 1600
Posted 16 June 2012 - 04:03 PM
This was shot on a rainy day and my vantage was not that good, or close. I've had some great photo ops in the past, but didn't have a camera with me!
The detail and quality have held up fairly well in my opinion considering the enlargement and the potentially 'noisy' ISO.
Thank you for any input or comments.

My gear is nothing esoteric (canon T2i and 400L lens) but I feel it is good enough to yield quality results. I only shoot RAW which provides some latitude, much more than I have every experienced with colour media. I shot film for years, and mainly B&W, but/and for about 15 years my main film was (Kodak) Infrared. There was a skill-set required for shooting IR successfully but there was also great latitude.
So now with relatively modest processing/editing I can extract quite a lot from the recorded (RAW) file. I do not use Photoshop/CS but do use Lightroom (much more intuitive and film-like!) as well as NIK software.

Once again I'm in awe of your work! I really like seeing the rain drops on the water! Even when my camera (Nikon D-90) is on auto it doesn't take crisp images like this....Beautiful!
There's no reason your D90 can't take pictures as good as this. I've got a D300 (the D90 came out after the D300, and has mostly the same 'guts') so you should be able to come close to the sharpness in some of my pics as well.
For starters, forget that awful 'auto' button exists.

My camera is on every manual mode I can set.
