Love this one. It just works.
Very nice, good work!
Very interesting Ann. The moon, however,seems unnaturally sharp to me.
I am thrilled that you found the moon to be "too sharp"!
I shot the eclipse hand-held with a TC-2.0 on a 300mm PF lens with the dangerously low (for that 600 mm focal length) S/S of only 1/250 and at a somewhat extreme ISO 51,000.
It was no surprise that the result was slightly noisy (so I used a little noise-reduction but no sharpening at all in ACR).
However, it was a huge surprise to me that a camera could deliver images like this when mis-used in this way!
I'm assuming that this is a composite image?
I either popped up to Mars and shot last week's lunar eclipse from there — or perhaps I might have shot the moon from my driveway in New York State and added it to an other-worldly landscape which I shot one morning at sunrise in Damaraland, Northern Namibia?
Just asking..... Whatever.
Frankly, and I realize you probably weren't asking for a critique, but I find all the added-on stuff rather distracting. The moon looks great, though!
The landscape itself is as it exists in reality.
For me, my moon shot, by itself and floating in a black sky, is just a record of the event and there are thousands of similar equally boring images like that all over the Internet!
The eclipse occurred directly overhead here so there was no way for me to provide context from terrestrial features like people in eastern Europe were able to do
I shot the eclipse for two reasons: firstly to see if I could; but also with the intention of using the red moon as a component in other compositions.
Cool, like the Sc-iFi look.
