Oh, WOW. I've been trying to get moon shots like that for a while. What's the secret- remote shutter and a sturdy tripod??

I have a 55-200 that will be getting used for that purpose next weekend and I'll be thrilled if I can get anywhere near that result. 10/10




Shot with droid incredible.

Don't mind these either...(any way to comment out? I just want to save the locations for future reference when I post again in this thread)

Use spot metering, a tripod, and ISO 100. Wait for the moon to be high in the sky for more white colors, low in the sky for yellows and reds. Shoot at f/8. Focus to infinity. Daylight white balance will work. Avoid street lamps and such.

It's as easy as that.

7/10. Too much sky. But impressive for a phone.

Want to redo this one since I just realized tinypic butchered it.

Here is pic of the moon when it was orange the other night. One of the only in focus shots I got and its still not as detailed as I want it. I would kill for some better lenses lol

You're right, I uploaded the wrong one! As for background, to me gun cases are boring, and when it comes to PA the only thing you will find is grass, dirt, and a crap load of trees!

Here is another one but I think the shadows around the gun are a littel dark..

9/10 That one is way more pleasing on the eyes. A remote flash would get rid of most of the shadow.

Here is a pic of a boardwalk trail I took today

I like it! I would prefer the area in focus be a little closer but thats just me. 9/10

Its been raining for two days now, and now its going to snow tomorrow so I cant take any new pcitures, but I thought maybe a crop would make it look better.

5/10
Not much to be seen, just looks liek you were goofing off in your kitchen.
Also, Im strongly against partially desaturating images, its very cliche. To me they look like those old hand colored sepia tone images from before color photography.

Hmm well I dont know any kitchen to have carpet and I wouldnt call it "goofing off" I was just taking test images with a new lens and thought that one looked nice so I edited it a little, without B&W then there wouldnt be colour would there? lol. As for the picture you posted I give 5/10 the sky looks slightly off colour (desaturated as you said about my picture), did you edit it or is it the standard picture? also what camera are you using?

2/10. The background is very busy and the selective coloring bit is too gimmicky, especially when superimposed. Additionally, your autofocus missed, and got the label under the cap rather than the text on said cap in your previous shot.

P.S. My kitchen was carpeted when I moved in.

Don't fight kids.

A high 7.

I really want the top left to top mid section of the dune to be more prevalent in the frame. I feel like there's a lot of detail over there. Maybe this is one of those photos which looks best on a massive print. Nice coloration, but I don't like the line of the subject.
