White-crowned Sparrow

White-crowned Sparrow

I found this White-crowned Sparrow at the Tualatin River NWR on June 17, 2010.  I reprocessed it and liked how it came out in Lightroom 4 Beta.  Taken with a Canon 40D, 1/250, f7.1, ISO400, 400mm with Canon EF 100-400L lens.

    Wow. I really like how this turned out too! Great job! Do you feel LR4 was the key? Or, do you just feel like your editing techniques have changed since last year? Trying to determine the value of the LR upgrade!! 🙂

      Kimi, they say (some tutorials do) that LR4 does a better job of recovering blown highlights and dark shadows. Many of the sliders have been reworked and supposedly do a better job now. I also like the new Noise brush that’s available for localized work on images. The new Map module is kind of neat because it makes it easy to geo-tag images. Not earth-shattering changes but since it is my primary software for processing, I figure I have to keep up with it and get the best results I can. I must say though that the image had some help from Photoshop and Color EFEX Pro 4, too! Thanks for the comment, Kimi!
