A month ago I posted a photo of the moon taken without a tripod. Someone said I could do better.


Took this on Wednesday morning at dawn.
. I believe this is better.

    Should I tone it down?

    Your moon is not round and yes, you got excited with the saturate button.

    Tim,

    Nice Moon Harvest.

    To go along with WaterEngineer's comments, I see some "unique" ridges that almost look like contour lines on a chart. Do you see them on the file straight out of the camera? Click on the edited image below to enlarge it.

    WB, good catch. I believe those are sharpening artifacts. Moon, what tool did you use to sharpen the image? Also, for my edification, what camera (really my question is what sensor) was this shot on?

    I did notice it wasn't round. Must of been when I sharpen it up on Photo Bucket. The original photo is round so it had to be in the editing. I took the photos in half daylight and dark at 7 am on Wednesday. Being so I darken the brightest and added some saturate to bring out details.

    WD Good to here from you again. The camera is just a point and shoot L830 Nikon. The camera for being under $200 fit my needs for a super zoom camera with it 65 X zoom. It is rotten in a boat trying to focus with the zoom. I never notice the lines before, good eyes.

    As I say before this camera got a great zoom. Only get around 2/3 of the moon with full zoom.

    The bottom half

    It you notice in my the photo of the full moon there is a glow around the top half of the moon. This photo of the top half after saturate
    the glow is now red.

    It looks like a watermelon. The beauty of a full moon is how perfectly round it is. How do you ruin that?

    To many, the beauty of a full moon far surpasses limitation to it's shape alone and it floats far above simple rhetorical questions. '-}
