I just got this Canon 50D (upgrade from a Nikon D40 that was stolen). I'm still getting used to it bue need critique
first attempt at a moon shot. 70-200 f4L used
Few shots with an f16 static display with Sigma 10-20

I might crop some of the sky out of the center F-16 photo... lots of wasted space there...
The moon shots are very good for a 200 lens.........but this time of the year, the moon always looks like you need to twist your head to get a good look..
A more pleasing presentation is to rotate it to a more familiar shape. (I know, the celestial guys scream that it's not technically correct...but hey, photo stuff is art, not science)
This was taken last week, also with a 70-200 lens.

the moon, esp.the bigger version, appears to be blurry to me. were these hand held?

image 4 is a little soft, did you hand hold? I like the moonshots! How do you like the 50d? I just got mine and am trying to learn it too

I really liked these photos, thought they were very good. As said above, probably some cropping could be used in order to fine tune the actual effect of the photograph.
Great job though.

tripod was used for all the pictures. It was windy however and might have kicked a little when i took the picture. The moon shots were click click nothing long. The f16s were long on bulb with a long shutter.
I like the 50D very nice upgrade and is pretty user friendly. I still havent used the creative modes etc. I've only taken pics in Tv and Manual
