In the past it has been my experience that DXO was much better at correcting chromatic aberrations than ACR. What is the experience of others here with regard to CA.
Stunning image! Very well done
Beautiful and cute at the same time! Congratulations!
Great head and shoulder composition. Very good eye and feather details.
Interesting point of view. Nice angle of the head and eye direction. Very good eye and feather details.
Great eye and feather details. Lovely bokeh background.
Very clean eye and feather detail. Nicely filled frame with the head and shoulders. I like this composition.
Great lighting of the eye and face. Very good detail in the eye and feathers. Amusing and interesting pose of the bird. Very nicely done.
Great image with near symmetry. Nice capture of this feeding behavior.
Cute little guy! Very good detail in the eye and feathers. Nice image.
Impressive crisp detail in the eyes. very well done.
Very genial shot, nicely composed, excellent detail.
neon nl: Deserves a 5 stars score! Very well planned shot with the 3 flashes.
GabrielZ: Absolutely stunning!
km25: Very nice. It is not Full Frame, 3/4 or APC sensors. A good camera in the right hands gives you what you see. Stop that pixel count'n and shoot. Film is good.
The 7D has a 1.6 crop sensor, APS-C. The image was only cropped for the square format, but used the entire height of the original image.
DanCee: wow, you can freeze the bird at 1/250.. well done!! nice colors as well
Yes, the strobes did the freezing. With 3 strobes fairly close to the subject the strobe power was set near 1/128th power. I think that produces a very short flash burst less than 1/35000th sec. Much shorter than the fastest mechanical DSLR shutter.
Quoth: Utterly superb.
Thanks for your kind words.
Beautiful feather details.
