Really nice shot Kevin! I completely forgot about it - although it was probably cloudy here in the UK.

Did you need to do much PP on it? How was the black at ISO1600?

THanks Keith.

Clear sky here.

PP. not a lot, ca. 50-60% crop (from 510mm) a touch of sharpening (shot in RAW) and a minor (virtually no) curves adjustment. No NR whatsoever so that black is as it was - 1,600 is great on the K5 isn't it

Great shot . . you really did well with this one. I wanted to give it a try but we had lots of cloud cover during the super moon.
