Maybe not my best, but I've not taken one like these before.

Those are fabulous shots, John. I downloaded your .nef file that you posted, and I couldn't come up with a better way to process it. Just the LR or PS shadow lift seems the most natural. I tried the Camera Raw noise reduction, but didn't get much improvement in the slight colour blotching. Perhaps one of the stand alone noise reduction processes could do better? I'm not sure.

I also tried additional layers to lighten the shadows but to no avail. Its a very difficult image and I absolutely love the ones with just the plane silhouette again the moon. Those are awesome. A closer crop would be amazing.

Phil Your work is instantly recognizable

Thanks Jeff - I have not had time to work on it more - perhaps this weekend.

Here's nearly a 100% crop of the other image.

Shearing on Gunnong Jugrawah on the Murrumbidgee River near Jugiong NSW

First morning. About another 20,000 sheep to go.

It has been 20 years since I was in a working shed .

How times have changed. We in Australia are now in a Nanny state. When I was growing up, before I went away to school I would be all over the Shed at shearing time. If I got in the way and didnt move when asked I would be picked up by one of the Rous a bouts and either popped down one of the chutes where the Shorn sheep get put our dumped in a wool bin. It was all a great adventure

That photo was taken illegally because unless you are employed and insured, you are not allowed on "the board"

How truly pathetic we are getting in the western world when we cannot be trusted to look out for our selves and if we dont, we sue.

Anyhow, for all of you who have never seen a pic taken i a working shearing shed; enjoy

Tim
