  1. The composition is superb, I've experienced myself how hard this bird is to photograph, so well done! Personally, I would have made some more effort to do noise reduction in post processing, but that's only a personal preference. All in all a great capture! Posted 5 years ago
    1. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback.
      I will see, if I can reduce the noise, I'm a beginner when it comes to using photo editing tools.
      Do you have any references or video URLs handy ?

          1. Good choice :) Lightroom has some pretty good noise reduction tools. In Develop mode, you will find them in the "Detail" panel -> Noise Reduction. Make sure you are zoomed in to 100% and then play around with the sliders. Don't overdo it, because noise reduction will not only get rid of noise, it will also get rid of details you may still want.

            That's the quick and easy way. If you really wanna take control, you can use the adjustment brush and paint areas on the image that you want noise reduction to apply to, and leave other areas alone.

            I hope this helps.

The Asian Paradise Flycatcher is a medium-sized passerine bird native to Asia. Males have elongated central tail feathers, and in some populations a black and rufous plumage while others have white plumage. Females are short-tailed with rufous wings and a black head. They feed on insects, which they capture in the air often below a densely canopied tree.

With an extremely large range and a large population that appears to be stable, they have been evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN since.. more
