- Heavy Cropped Image (not reduced in size - so you can view at 100% if you want to):

Now here is 100% cropped on the pelican ONLY.

there is no difference by showing a small portion of photo and entire photo at original size that may not fit into your monitor.

I think your wording might be adding to your confusion

Not that is your part.

Obviously less resolution in the 5D pic

less size. But it contains more textual details.  Check both birds' bodies, it's pretty clear my one contains more feather details.  Please be fair not because you're a Nikon shooter and many times I don't share with your opinions.

but I'm a little surprised at the noise in the blue channel at ISO 240.

ISO 250, blue channel is from reflection of blue ocean.  Think about, his photo taken at 1/4000 while my one taken at 1/1000.  Sure it's one stop difference of aperture f2.8 vs f5.6.  But still his photo received more light and obviously the bird got sunlight lit.  My pelican unfortunately was in shadow that together adding a bit of noise, not much and I can NR more that I can do later.

You think that's due to the +2/3 EV you have set?

Yes I use Evaluative metering since the bird was in shadow against bright sky, so added +2/3 EC.  You see I have to pull shadow.

Your image is at 350 PPI...was that by design?

?  Thru LR4 whatever but it's 100% cropped size.

Love the colors!!

Yes from 5DIII with well known pleasing Canon colors.
