Space Odyssey
Lens: Pentax 55-300 Camera: K7 ISO: 100 
Posted By: Workingdog, 07-16-2011, 01:47 PM

I shot a few pics of the moon with the 55-300 and they came out OK, but a little boring. So, I thought I'd try to do something "artistic". Success or failure?

I like it.It reminds me of the old movie "2001 Space Odyssey".I wonder how it would look with a wee bit of cropping?--charliezap

Great shot, razor sharp focus with good lighting and the colour blends nicely. Opens the imagination. Well done.

@ Charlie, it's already pretty heavily cropped down to about 4 MP before resizing to post here. I have a version that's more of a panorama format crop that looks kind of cool though. Make's me wish I had enough disposable cash to by a 1000+ mm lens.
