This is a photo of a scarlet macaw taken during the all star bird show at the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. The scarlet macaw is probably one of the most fascinating birds in the world. I felt quite lucky to be able to capture a decent photo of it in-flight.

-clone some background distractions
-enhance contrast and saturation

absolutely superb, the colours are amazing and you caught him right in the action! well done!
The cloning is maybe just a bit too obvious on the blue feathers, but still a fantastic shot.


Hi Timothy,
Wonderful capture of this beautiful and colorful bird with a very nice BG providing a very good contrast. Perfect sharpness!!

Hi Tim,
Excellent capture of this ara in flight. Even with 1/500 a superb freeze. The low f-stop creates the blurry background enhancing the colourful bird even more. Perfect image my friend!

wow what a flight... nice shot of Macaw lovely colors


This is an excellent in flight shot, very well captured. Excellent exposure and DOF.

Some fine capture here.
I see you have f/4 IS, one I just got few days ago, but didn't have the chance to test it out properly.
I just wondered have you used IS here?

Great colours.

Hi Timothy,
Amazing capture ! Superb shot!
Colors are gorgeous.

Hi Timothy,

Stunning shot, the green baclground really complimants the colour on the bird.



Your quote: "I felt quite lucky to be able to capture a decent photo of it in-flight." DECENT? Are you kidding me? this is spectacular! awesome! Terrific!

Hi Timothy,

Your picture is really fantastic : color, sharpness, mouvement. I don't understand why it haven't got much more points.
Best regards,
