Grackle (Mr Don't Mess With Me)
Lens: 560mm APO triplet scope Camera: Q-S1 
Posted By: wildman, 10-24-2016, 09:05 AM

This was a triumph of Photoshop over a 3200 ISO Q-S1 sensor file.
I like Grackles - whatever they may be they have a lot of character - they are not just another pretty face.
I may have posted this over on 300mm + forum - can't remember for sure.

Model PENTAX Q-S1
Shutter Speed 1/320 s
F-Number f/0
ISO ISO 3200
Exposure Bias Value 0.00 eV
Metering Mode Pattern
Flash Off, Did not fire
Focal Length 475 mm
Date/Time Original 5/15/2015 12:52:24 PM

Outstanding!

I've long said that the Q-series cameras (especially the Q7 and Q-S1) are capable of excellent results at higher ISO settings with appropriate post-processing. Anyone who believes otherwise must surely think again when they see this photo. Great job!

Thank you.

For those kind words here is what I started with. Luckily it was a properly exposed ETTR RAW file so I had something to work with.
But it did take a lot of massaging to resuscitate it.

The initial exposure is so important at this level of sensitivity with the Q-series. You nailed it - and then brought out all the goodness of the image in your processing. Nice job!
