Thought i'd finally give this a try. the night was beautiful, cool fall air, clear sky. and...
I really like it, I was going to try a moon picture this night but i only have the 18-55mm lens that comes with the D60 hehe
What lens did you use?
Pentax DA 55-300mm iso100 f8 1/320
Thanks my next lens is going to be a 70-300 hopefully ill get a picture as good as yours hehe
Sorry, looks over-sharpened and -contrast for my tastes. The full moon lacks contrast as-is, so to me, trying to make the maria black and the highlands white is like saturating a landscape shot to make it look like cartoon colors. Some may like it, but not I.
quite good, but also for me it's too sharp and the contrast is too heavy. i think that your post work could be less invasive.
i like it. but here's a more pure shot.
Wyjid's version looks better
im confused, they're both my version. :s
sorry,it looks like i'm more confused than you
Yesterday's moon was actually not a full moon. Tonight's moon is the full moon.
I actually think shots like these are better with a tight square crop, and the moon dead center.
Cool shot, though. I'm going to have to try this tonight with my 180mm.
tried the square crop, but i like the sense of space that the wide crop gives. it's more a "look! the moon is a big ball... in space!" shot than a "oh look the moon is pretty" shot.
