Swallow nest in horse stable...

Postby Stany Buyle » Sat 7 May 2011 14:12

Yesterday I went to the nextdoor equestry club to take some horse pictures with the D7000 and 70-200VRII and I noticed a swallow couple flying in and out of one of the stables.
It was a very lowlight situation, so I didn't have to big hopes to get any usuable pictures.

This was the situation from outside...

And this was the situation what you could see after my eyes adapted themselves to the dark:

I used the cameras PUflash (One more time I was so happy to have a flash aboard. (PUFlash was also one of the main reasons I exchanged my D3 for a D700 3 years ago)

Here two pictures converted from RAW in Capture NX2:
The first picture is a 60% crop of the original view. Camera settings were: camera PUFlash, iso 800, F5 and 1/320sec, VR on, neutral picture style.

The second picture is a 66,7% crop of the orinal view. Camera settings were: camera PUFlash, iso 400, F2.8 and 1/80s, VR on, neutral picture style.
