Moonshots with a 1958 Jupiter-9

Not the ideal lens for the moon, but it was the longest I had with me....  1st image is a 100% crop, although due to site-compression it looks a bit less detailed than the original...

A dog...

f2.8

I think f2.8 Not sure how to avoid the posterization. Maybe shoot +2EV and then apply -2EV? Or is it due to sRGB 8 bits being stretched so much (too much highlight+dark detail? Whatever it is, I see it now very clearly that I have a better monitor.

Lens looks a bit soft but then look at the tiny flower hair in the detail. The flower is what's soft.

100% Crop

REXAGON 28mm 1:2.8 Mist and Sunset
5

On a drive this evening nearing sunset, noticed the fire-like orange light of the setting sun sifting through this stand of trees.

Knowing this Rexagon lens would punch up the oranges and yellows, it quite faithfully recorded the intense color of the sunlight's edge lighting of the trees.

Oddly enough, given that it was the colors that attracted your attention, I think this image would translate very well into b&w.

I agree. The photo has both good light and a good design structure.
