opportunistic shot of the moon earlier this evening. D3300 + 55-300 (@300). Stupidly didn't shoot in RAW but only 'Normal' so minimal processing options - sharpened (+4) and shadow protection a little. uncropped cropped image Continue reading

Paulus is opining he doesn't have enough room for his camera gear. Well I may be able to help ... with a Gumtree hunter-gatherer acquisition: Lowepro Nova 5AW. Just $40. Don't think they make this bag anymore but I reckon it would cost $150 at least, with 18-200 + D3300+18-105... Continue reading

nice. At the unzoomed size they look great. Are the close ups crops of the preceding image or separate images? What were the settings?. Were these hand held or on tripod? Try the same shots with your 18-55 - counterintuitively I reckon you will be able to get closer because of the shorter focussing distance. I also suggest try using flash - that should take some of the noise out of the dark areas.

Tee world will be consumed by fire. Last Pope according to St Malachy's list. 100 years since Fatima. Escaton anyone? I agree with you. It is a really bad idea. Trump is a chump so he may well think it is a good, testosterone charged idea. As I heard the author of the recently published novel about Cicero say that Lenin said - "if you aren't sure what to do, start a fight, then it will become clear" however in this case there may be no opportunities to do what presents itself as we may all be gone ...

So, on the way home at sunset. Sort of racing to get to a vantage point. Pull over at foot of Mt Taylor and head up the path, and I go through a little mob of kangaroos - seemed I could have almost reached out and touched one they were... Continue reading

Took camera (3300 + 55-300) and was taking some shots of the 'Stargate' footbridge. Off to right of vision a white object - sulphur crested cockatoo. Tried to grab a few shots as it flew past. These are the best 2, at normal size and then cropped (+ some minor... Continue reading
