dryspuri, the FZ40 can take a set of 3 photos at different exposures. When you select the EV button (+/-), you can set the exposure compensation. Press that button again and you can set the bracketing; for example, the additional photos and be taken at plus and minus two stops. Try it out - you'll get the hang of it

Stefan, yes, this was taken at 5MP using extended zoom.

Done using the weaker NR preset in Noiseware. It would benefit from being turned down a little more imho, but I was just keeping it simple.

Thanks FiveO, that's similar to the result I got with G'MIC Anisotropic Smoothing, which to me removed too much detail.

This is what I took last night.. be nice.. it's my initial attempt... Bracketed.. Picturenaut.. EV -1 +1 (+1 appears quite washed out tho).. 80 ISO.. full zoom 24x.. 5 mp.. NR -2.. contrast +1.. Sharpness +2..

Backyard Permaculture's appears to have more detail and be a bit sharper.. How do I get that detail?



Thanks

Thank you very much Saly... One answer is 'play with Picturenaut more'

Here're two of many from tonite... 7mp.. -1 +1 EV.. 80 ISO.. NR -2, Shrp +2, Cont +1, full zoom 24

both images are cropped



14mp...
