Moon Lighting

Discussion in 'Night, InfraRed, and UltraViolet Photography' started by vincebeus, Nov 13, 2005.

  1. Hi does this shot work. I shot the moon in the middle of the night i could not sleep so i gone outside to shoot the moon. I used the 70-200mm handhold to shoot the moon. I know is not the best way to shoot the moon.

    I then edited the photo to get a bit of artistic look does this work.

    Original crop:

    Moon Art edit

    Thanks for taking the time.

  2. i like it Vince...both of them!

    Could you share how you did the 2nd version easily?
  3. Thanks Helmet,

    easily not really.

    I first did some fine tuning like levels and color corrections.
    Then i used different layers to create water effect and moon in the water effect.

    Normally i can remember every step i make from my editing work. But this time i just gone from one step to other.

    Hi Vince

    These are great - in particular the processing - very very clever and realistic.

    Best wishes

    Hello Vince,

    Glad to see that you have a hobby to fall back on when you can not sleep. Night/dusk shots can provide wonderful subjects - I like both of your shots!
  6. Thank you so much
  7. Thank you
  8. Like your handheld moon shot Vince. Also, you did well with your post processing, quite nice actually. I will say that your moon is slightly egg shaped and that does distract a little.
  9. Haha now you mention it i get taste in a Egg on a sandwich. I better go to sleep haha. Thanks for the reply.
  10. Hi Vince,

    Nice job on them both. You did well.
  11. Thank you Melissa
