Dear Kuya Romy,
You have been a Sigma user before and I would treasure to learn from you. I'm often struggling taking shots of backlit birds (cloudy background) or birds under direct sunlight. There a lot of occasions when a bird would just show up and I'll just shoot without making adjustment. I'm using a Nikon D5000 camera and going though the menu is really a hassle.
Post processing would sometime destroy the details even further. Good thing for the shot below, little adjustment with the lighting showed the details of the bird.
Manual Exposure, 500mm, F/6.3, 1/80sec., ISO-400
Gear: Nikon D7200, Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM, AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G, AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
