Watermelon Moon

By tonyguitar
Better than my last moon since moving from jpeg to raw and fine jpeg..[Canon provides both at the same time], Still a long way to go as I begin to learn about raw and fine jpeg.. About time ... Yes, I'm slow.

The supermoon to beat all moons for detail and clarity is uploaded by [..Griz 11..]. enter page back 23 in the galleries . I followed just some of his advice and so slowly advancing....learning curve. TG

You can view August supermoon by Grz11 , 23 - 24 pages back in the galleries. When you view his moon large the detail is gripping. Wow! TG

Thanks... Editing raw images seems tough with Canon programs. What is better and low in price I wonder? TG

Thank you Cliff. I will check U Tube for how to get the moon. Good advice. Mick, youi may stick to jpegs but they are fine quality. No need for playing with raw process in your case. That Olympus pen mini EP1 and lens are amazing for quality images. Whew! TG

Yes Peter, That Canon software is for the birds. I like bare-bones software that gets the job done. Photo-shop is OK for those who have no concept of how valuable time is but we old guys have better things to do. The Kodak photo editor that came with the ESP7 printer is very QUICK. Kodak knows it's good so it will not work unless the printer is connected and on. The printer is old and faulty, but I turn it on every time to edit new images. Until a better photo editor shows up then.. TG

I think you did a great job on this one! Wink The moon is not easy to photograph since you need a really big telephoto lens. I want to try taking photos of the moon and stars too if I can someday.

The settings I have used here give an underexposed image. Keep them in mind though because everyone who tries the moon overexposes a lot until they get things right. So underexpose first and lighten it up after. Trial and error gets you a better moon than this one if you take the time. TG
