Moon shot and Sunset
Posted By: Photo Tramp, 06-07-2008, 07:19 AM

Taken last night sitting on the deck.
Camera: K100D Lens: DA 50-200mm ISO 800
And a little Photo Shop.

And the sunset.

Camera: K100D Lens: DA 50-200mm, not real sure of the ISO
The sunset was done in Picasa.

Wow - the moon image is really arresting, what a great job. I dig it.

Thanks Jer for the kind words. I think the lens flair added to an otherwise mundane shot added a little kick. My grandson (of 2 1/2) loves looking at the moon and has a mobile in his room with all the planets. He can tell you each one by name. I have taken several moon shots for him and he has those hung up also. This one he has just seen and carries it around showing everyone his Papa's moon.
I really think it came out very nice, almost looks like something from the Hubble.

The moon shot is very interesting with the flairing.. The sunset shot is very dramatic with the color changes.

Top effort with a 200mm lens hard to get it right

The effect from the shots are quite powerful. Dramatic and good use of noise.
