Me thinks you don't have as sharp an eye as you would like others to think you do.

So are you sayin your is not original ?

Hmmm...are you serious? Should I take that as a compliment?

Here's the shot out of the camera...just reduced size to post.

I have to say I take exception to your arrogance to just assume the photo was manipulated. Had you asked outright, I would not have thought twice about it.


Yeah i've been called having arrogance before in the past . Sorry if you feel that way . Reason it didn't look real to me is because as bright as the moon is behind the cowboy that building behind should be brighter than what it is and the moon looks so perfect as to where other moons this low on the horizon are orange in color and not sharp focused like yours is . So if you didn't PS it then just say so , not a problem . Have a great day ......

This was nowhere near the horizon. From my location (San Jose, CA) the moonrise was at 8:00 pm from the horizon. This was shot at 8:34 pm. By this point the sun had already set and I was at a location between mountains so it was quite dark at this point. Like I mentioned this is two seperate exposures. The moon was ETTR and brought down about 1 1/3 of a stop in post. WB temp was 3100 bringing the moon to more of its natural color. The original moon was blown out hence why I composit the exposures. Maybe I shouldnt have brought down the exposure that much and increase the WB temp to add some color in the moon?

Yes that would look better cause the moon should be orange or yellow at the height you have it projected here . Why don't you just post the original ?

Here's mine from last night over Harrisburg PA.
QUOTED IMAGE

Beautiful picture but why is your moon gray , why isn't it orange or yellow like all the others this low on the horizon ?

Took with my 70-300mm, hoping to get a timelapse of the moonrise tonight.

What happened to your picture and link ? It's not showing anymore .

Look...as I stated, I took exception with your flippant assumption that it was photoshopped. Why not ask instead of dismiss is as manipulated?

I was at a rodeo...had a 300 with a 1.4 extender mounted on my 7D. I knew about where the moon would rise at 8:01 last night. This shot was taken around 8:35.There was a guy in the stands with a cowboy hat on and I was on the other side of the arena.

My challenge was with that much focal length, I would not be able to get a sharper silhouette and still get a sharp picture of the moon. So I manually focused on the moon wanting that to be primary and got the guy's head/head in the foreground as planned. Just wish it had not been as blurred as it was. I didn't want to shoot at a real high ISO but was shooting between 100 and 125/sec at 5.6-8.0

There was no building in the background. That was the top bleacher and the moon was orange in color until it rose higher. Sure...you started this thread and offered some decent tips. But your response just came across in a poor way given you were wrong.

Just saying.

Just the opposite. Explained further in my other post/response.

Or you could ask if they were photoshopped instead of being a jerk.

I'm not dismissing it as manipulated , just replying in a way that it was no big deal . If you had posted this image also with the first two then i would have never questioned it . You made your point , good explanation focusing on the moon to start with then framing the cowboy in the image , congratulations , good job . Let's get over it and get on with the thread . Have a good day , sorry i ruffled your feathers . I apologize, feel better now ?

Just going by the statement you said that you didn't think i had as sharp an eye as what i wanted all to think i have . That's either sayin you disagree that i said yours looked original or your admitting your image is not real . So what is it your actually sayin ??
