    Sharpening brought out that purplish noise. I tried to remove it with NeatImage, to no avail. Any suggestions?

    I like it! Would love to see a bigger crop!

    I've been visiting my terrace couple of times each night for last few days in an attempt to capture the crescent moon, but without success as its been very dull and cloudy all these days
    You first see a photo with your mind, and then capture it with your camera!

    its a very interesting shot tor. have never seen the exposure done like that which makes it different and interesting to look at. sorry no idea about noise on that photo, my PP NR techniques/ skill are appalling.

    RE: crescent moon, imo you will get a sharper image if you increase your shutter speed a little. i would go for a 1/150 to start with and work your way up. i think its easier to bring out some highlights from a slightly underexposed image. looks to me that you may have lost a bit of highlight detail due to the moon being a little overexposed. you can only do this when shooting in manual mode cos your cam will indicate that the moon is underexposed in Ap mode. maybe even shot at 270mm, i kjnow with my VR lens it was a little softer at 300mm than it was at 270-280mm and i could get better images cropped tighter from a shorter focal length.

    btw: why are you using MF ??

    Hey Tori--

    That second shot is great! Not the usual moon shot....

    About the noise--you should run Neat Image before you sharpen, and probably before you do any processing after converting from RAW. Sharpening will increase the visibility of noise, so removing first is advised.

    Thanks, Rooz and Adam! I did try removing the noise between RAW conversion and post-processing, but it didn't really show up until after sharpening. On Flickr, it was pointed out that it isn't really noise, but actually light from the moon. I'm still improving my skills in NeatImage, sometimes I get artifacts before I get the noise removal ... but I'm getting better.

    Rooz, thanks for your comments, I didn't realize the moon was overexposed. I do have some lower-key shots, I'll take a look at them and see if I can get better results with them.

    I do shoot in manual mode for night shots. I tried some shots at 240 - 270, but I didn't find any benefit. I should probably take another look at them, too, though I manual focus because I get better results that way -- even though it's hard to find the focus myself, apparently I do a better job than the autofocus!
