    On vacation in Frisco, NC right now. Hatteras Lighthouse is not too far away. Here is a shot from yesterday.

    Is this moire (circular rainbow effect on painted brick)? If so, I will have to try to fix it... or retake it. I like the shot but that annoys the stink out of me. So is may be a little large here, but I would like some opinions on the distortion. I didn't have a hood with me, but I don't think it is flare - of course it *might* be - but I think it looks more like moire.

    Thanks in advance for help on this one.

    Nice picture, but the moire is indeed very distracting. If you have the shot in RAW you could try to use lower sharpening settings, this might result in less moire.

    If that does not help, here's a extensive guide on how to fix it with photoshop:

    It is a lot of work, but the result does look pretty good.

    Thanks Prospero!

    I did shoot raw, and the posted version does have sharpening applied. I had already looked closely with and without sharpening, and saw the moire in both - maybe a tad sharper rainbow after sharpening, but at this resolution it doesn't seem to make as much difference. That bites! But I will start reading that guide now.

    Are you trying to say I put my "taint" in my coffee? Thats disgusting man.

    Anyways, I thought it needed something else in the picture other than just a mug and coffee maker. We didn't have any whole coffee beans lying around, and I thought coffee grounds would just make the photo look messy. So the spoon became the supporting actor.

    Question from a learner...

    The lighthouse shot is nice. I'm afraid I can't see what you mean about moire though. I am glad you said what to look for (circular rainbow effect on painted brick) because even with that info I don't see it. Maybe it's my monitor?

    Granted I have a lot to learn about advanced digital photography- I just bought my 1st dSLR last week (D80, 18-135, Ultra II & Ultra III cards). I have been using good digicams for several years but aim to improve my artistic talents. Post-capture skills are on my agenda. I have Photoshop 7 and Capture One Pro loaded on my Mac for now. My main interests are photo journaling and photo essays with candid shots being integral components.

    I know I can & will have to research many terms and techniques on my own. How about a headstart with a bit of a rundown on "moire" from those of you who obviously have the scoop?

    Thanks in advance. I'm enjoying the forum and look forward to contributing.

    A simple quick way to do this is using the Despeckle filter. It works pretty well for me. For the more severe cases, you may have to use it 2 times.

    Enjoy your Vaca!


    iamunique... look at the black painted bricks on the Lighthouse. You will see a "u" or rainbow pattern. That is what is being referred to in this case of "moire".

    BTW, Capture One Pro is some pretty good software! Welcome to the forum, too!

    When I look back, I hope I consider these photos taken during the very early stages of my "light enlightenment" process. I've been addicted to the strobist blog and the strobist group on flickr.com. . . .

    Me too, but I still have A LOT of learning to do. I also use a 50mm for almost all of my strobist work (when in controlled conditions). Where did you position the umbrella in reference to the camera?
