Back to the Moon
Jan 20, 2011

It's a full Moon tonight, and it is moderately clear in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US. Hopefully some of you other can go out and get a shot tonight for comparisons.

(Full Moon is not the best for testing your skills, but I am impatient. Besides, my plans to get the Full Moon rising behind the Jefferson Memorial were foiled by early clouds.)

Shot in manual & AF-S. D7000, Nikon 70-300 mm VR at 300mm.

This is a hasty processing job on one of my shots tonight.

Opened in Capture NX, set Picture Control to Standard & ADL off. Matched grey using a tiny bright crater (didn't make much difference.) Emphasized contrast using the histogram in Quick Fix. Saved as 16-bit TIFF & opened in PS where I ran Noiseware Pro & then an unsharp mask (150%, 0.7 pixels).

Buckshot & others, the ball is in your court!
