    As part of my aim to teach myself photography (lacking funding and time for a course) I have used my blog to log my methods of taking phots - as well as evaluating my own work and seeing where I am going right and where I am going wrong.
    What I am looking for now is for some people to look at what I have said in my blog and to give me some feedback - am I thinking along the right lines - am I making any errors and are there any methods I can use to improve;

    Hey,
    you might have more luck if you just post your blogs on here. I don't think people really go to a blog looking to provide feedback... they're more like online books that you go and read and take info away from. Forums are for feeding back in information.

    Very true! I second that. I sometimes want to say the same thing - pretty much whenever I see a link to anything offsite. But I don't cuz I'm afraid I'll sound bossy or something.

    Why wouldn't anyone click an external link?

    It saves TPF's hosting costs which can't be a bad thing.

    I don't differentiate between on and off site links when it comes to looking at examples of people's work.

    I would have missed some magificant photographs if I had.

    Re the moon images

    Are you keeping track of the real apertures, at least in your head? Your f/2.8 lens is no longer an f/2.8 when there are two 2x TCs behind it, it is an f/11 (2.8 x 2 x 2). That's probably why the first image looks darker than the second - they were taken at different exposures. As an aside, f/8 is not usually called a wider aperture than f/5.6.

    Best,
    Helen

    Thanks Helen :)
    Ahh I had to run that first bit through my head a few times before it clicked - then I felt foolish -- a downside to letting the camera do all the thinking!
    And thanks for the catch with the aperture
