Did You Take A Photo of Last Night's Moon?

Post by minniev » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:35 pm

This isn't a great shot, by any means, but I kinda liked the idea of this guy pulling in a fish by the light of that moon. No enlarging here, though I tried one like that (and failed, maybe try again later, I took a few extra moons to play with).

If you took a moon picture last night, please add to the thread.

nope, I looked at it over the marsh in the twilight though. Good job catching the fading light.

Minnie, Here you go. Another semi-insomniac night from the drugs. So I gave up, rolled out of bed at 5 am and saw the goddess Diana in the west. The first is a one-minute exposure. Did some stuff in Silver Effex. The second is an hour later and lasted 12 seconds. Again, did some SEP. I don't like the haloing over the trees in #1, though, but I do like the moonbeams, moon glow and star slides. Matt

That's kinda wonderful.

Haloing: Using your newfound knowledge, make a duplicate layer in PS, select the clone tool and choose a soft round brush at about 50% opacity (adjust as needed). The brush should be sized slightly larger than the halo. Set the blend mode for the clone tool (not the layer) to Darken. Sample from the area just beyond the halo. Paint the halo. It doesn't matter if you paint over the dark things like twigs, it won't show. Undo and redo as needed. Be careful on corners.

I really like the first and the spaceship on the right gives it an otherworldly feel, but I'm drawn to the second. Beautiful! S-

Thank you Steve. The spaceship is slowing for a soft landing on the moon, you know. I caught Elon doing an unannounced test. Matt
