Behind The Lens

Location
I am asking you to introduce a style correction. I understand the English language but it is much harder for me to use it in spelling. This picture was taken during my 3 days adventure in Bia?owie?a Forest.This National Park is the best preserwed piece of old, primeval European lowland forest.The forest is rich in other kinds of wildlife. These incredible picture show two birds of prey spectacularly fighting each other in snow like karate movie legends. In this image a large buzzard appears to aim a deadly flying kick at its opponent's chest. .
Time
Exactly at the worst time for the photographer - almost at noon.(2017-02-09 13.04PM) But in the case of birds of prey it is hard to predict anything.In this case, for three consecutive days I got up before dawn and returned home at dusk.
Lighting
In the case of shooting from a significant distance, and so it was in this case, photographed only in the light of the existing. In order to obtain an unimpaired photo, I used high ISO.
Equipment
This picture was taken with Nikon D5 +Nikkor 500 f/4 +Tripod Manfrotto
Inspiration
Photographing birds is my great passion for life. I have been photographing them for over 55 years. But shooting birds of prey are emotions of very special kind.
Editing
In this case, I had to develop the RAW. In addition, in Photoshop, I adjusted the exposure, white balance. I reduced the image and sharpened it.
In my camera bag
For shooting birds I always take with me two cameras (Nikon D5 + Nikon D500) ; the two lenses Nikkor 500 / f.4 + Nikkor 300 1: 4E + teleconverter 1.4. Of course, extra batteries.
Feedback
Each individual must approach the topic. Do not be discouraged but improve your photographic workshop with the "trial and error" method. .
