Default Power of Moon (9-03-2012)

The effect is a bit 'distressing!! (take this night and with a little PP )

not distressing alex, bloody marvelous! pardon my language but thats about as good a picture of the moon as you'd erver hope to see from a bridge camera. i envy almost to the point of buying a 150. but i know you will always get a sweeter tune from that instrument than i. well done m8!

alex do you have msn or windows messenger or anything like that. or failing that get yourself over here and teach me how you do that because try as i might i cant get even close to that sort of quality. is that SOTC with no additional lens? and what settings did you use for the original shot? its awesome m8

ive just taken some really nice pics with mine alex and ive dabbled with them in photoshop elements 7, but i cant get anything that looks like yours. i am just gutted because i know the detail is there but your shading is just so dramatic it makes the picture! gives it the wow factor!!

Very nicely done, Alex. The moon gets a metallic look with your PP.

Thanks John, Raghu and xHassan for the appreciation!!

Dear John and xHassan, I am not an expert in Photoshop, but I use a great plugin called Topaz Labs, is a suite with several tools, the ones I used are "Topaz Denoise" for noise reduction, and "Topaz Adjust" for the effect of particular color and brightness. Obviously I did not use any additional lens.
