I notice on both of mine I got some fringing on the upper left side of the moon.


Interesting - I saw most fringing on the top right between the craters. Easily fixed in camera raw, though. When I went looking online for other shots to compare how this image ranks with other, I found one taken with a new 800mm f/5.6 and it had even more green and purple fringing around the edges. Made me feel good I saved enough to buy a small car and still got a better moonshot

I just guessed the exposure taking a few frames at different shutter speeds, making sure I had something showing in the histogram near the middle. First shot was at f/5.6 1/125s and that was clearly overexposed. The actual aperture of the one I used is closer to f/11 1/200 when you calculate the TC in, which was a little dark, but nicely in the middle of the histogram which is all you need to make it work in camera raw.

White balance is in camera, cooled down just a little - the moon had a little red tint out of camera, which I think for the late hour I shot the image wasn't really correct. It was almost overhead and hours after sunset. Your moon appears a lot cooler here on screen - any adjustments there? I think mine is at about 4300K

When you are looking at the moon at these focal lengths, it is quite amazing how fast it will wander out of your frame, forcing you to readjust your framing. I suppose with 2000mm, this was even more of a problem.

Looking at the size of your 2000mm moon, I just found another reason to look into a nice TC14. Never thought stacking TCs would create usable images.

Located in the heart of Angers in the Loire Valley, this fortress was built in the 12th century by the king Louis IX (called Saint louis). The castle consists of a 2,000 ft long wall protected by seventeen towers and is famous for its unique 103 metre-long tapestry (called "Apocalypse tapestry") from the 14th century known as the biggest medieval tapstry in the world.

Thanks. I certainly will. I remembered that I have two modern film bodies too. Had them in storage. N90 and N6006. I will be around...

Kevin, that's too bad.

Do post in Alternative Image thread and let us have the links until you get Harold up to speed.

I've enjoyed your work since you arrived with your "E" lenses and look forward to film shots.

My good friend Georg recommended that I crop this one differently, I have to agree. Thanks Georg.

Ronny, thank you! The dragonfly-shots with the bowed leaf are outstanding.

Jay, nice cactus-blossom with the 24 PC-E!

Leighton, love the farm-shot and the Ninja! I wonder if a closer shot or crop of the farm would have more "impact".

Philippe, wow, the fortress looks invulnerable. Very cool photograph of this massive building.

James, very nice story about courtesy when taking pictures. I like your shots as well. Over here classic street-photography is almost impossible for legal reasons and even a verbal "okay, yes, you can take my picture" is not 100 percent safe legally. Legal questions aside, I think it's just a matter of courtesy to ask in most situations.
PS: did you come home with a new hat?

Steve and Peter, love your moon-shots! The images posted here with the 600/5.6, the 500/4P and the 600/4 always lead to an instant ebay-search, I just can't make up my mind to get myself such a massive cannon ;-)

Scott, love the "star-train"! The low light-levels work great here and the heat-waves above the locomotive too. Great framing with the tracks.

John, nice pumpkins! Some months ago I've shot a image similar to your corn-maze-picture, just with some kids peaking through the green. Lens of choice was the 16/3.5 too. Thanks for pointing me to my personal example of this legendary MF-Nikkor!

Leighton, it looks better this way in my opinion (and better than "my crop" suggested over at flickr too ;-). The gentle bows/sweeps of this beautiful landscape are more accentuated now.

John, good orange colors in the pumpkins and the peek through the maze. Hopefully you have been holding out better than a few weeks ago, have things picked up?



Thanks Samy -

Nope, things look just as bleak. I'm not so worried about myself, but I have two employees that I'd really rather not let go . .
Hopefully some of our business development efforts over the past few weeks will pay off.

In the mean time no new glass and actually I'll be culling the Nikon mounted herd soon. Though I did trade in my 24-85AFS VR on a 75/1.8 Oly to use on my GH-2 (amazing lens for sure).
Wish Nikon would have an equivalent.

John, wouldn't the 180mm f/2.8 be a reasonable competitor to the 75mm f/1.8 Oly?

Leighton, great fall landscape in Shenandoah!

Ronny, lovely flowers, including the one with the messy bokeh! And terrific dragonfly on the racetrack.

Jay, the cactus flowers are superb!

John, hang in there, hopefully the efforts will pay off. Shaky times for many nowadays.

Steve, great job at getting a 2000mm pic of the moon!!

James, nice pictures of the vendors. Courtesy should not be so difficult, but for some it is.

Philippe, the fortress walls are very impressive, and the flag at the top helps give the scale of the wall. Interesting history with it.
