    Love this portrait of the Frogmouth. You can see the background's reflection off its eye. How close were you when you took this shot? I'm assuming you have the 70-300mm?

    Rooz - Amazing shot of the Tawny Frogmouth. I have never been able to capture reflection in an eye like that. As always....very impressive.

    And more shots from the 1200 vacation pics...

    I love this one because I had time to pull out the camera, turn it on, adjust and focus and this guy was still staring at the other woman. He almost turned completely around and watched her run by.



    They wanted a picture of the two of them so I jokingly suggested using the shower as a "Striper pole" and they both jump right up. What Sara (The girl on the right) didn't realize was that she turned on the shower and got blasted with water. My timing was perfect on this one.

    this is basically MFD on the 105VR. so its maybe 20cm away.

    Processing done exclusively in NX. I'm quite happy with that program other than the noise reduction (it seems to add noise when making adjustments, or perhaps doesn't automatically remove it like other programs.) I could use a separate NR program, but I don't feel like it I also noticed that once I save it as a TIFF, I can no longer see the camera settings . . . but PSP can open TIFFS and work on them, and save them over and over without loss of data (I think?) so if I need to do any PP in PSP I'll use that feature.

    18mm, 1/50, f/14, ISO 200. I also used my 1.2 GND filter.

    C&C appreciated, as always.
    Amazing shot, Tori. It's perfect in every way, like most of the work you have posted lately. I love the exposure, use of filter and the composition.

    I have not really noticed the noise when making adjustments. Of course, with heavy adjustments, things get a bit more grainy, but it's not that bad here. Having said that, the noise reduction of Capture NX is very poor, it's more like a gaussian blur filter than a noise reduction filter. Neatimage is much better.

    hello

    Hey all, I'm new at posting here. I thought I would post one of my few first shots I have taken with my D80.

    Quick Background: I'm a helicopter pilot by night, photographer by day. This is unfortunately my second tour here in Iraq. And I am on month 10 of 15 right now.

    Iraqi moon.

    Wow, that compliment means a lot coming from you, Dennis. Thanks. I agree that NX's "noise reduction" is more like gaussian blur, but luckily most of the time I only notice the graininess in the sky, which is ok to blur a little (I think I used 5 this time.)

    Brian, welcome to the forum! What lens do you use? There are some great threads here about moon shots, where you could learn some new techniques if you're interested. The main thing is to use a tripod (or something else to steady the camera,) a fast shutter speed (1/320 is a good place to start,) a long focal length (such as 300 mm or longer) and a sharp aperture (such as f/8 or f/11.) Thanks for sharing your shot and your background, isn't it wonderful to catch shots of the moon with details we can't see with our eyes?

    Sorry, I created a sig after I posted my moon shot.

    I did use my tripod, it's a SLIK U212 Deluxe (this thing is a monster).

    Photo was taken with my 18-135mm | ISO100 | f/7.1 | 1/60

    I was truly amazed at the detail of the moon post-production. Maybe one day when I am taking pictures at night outside I will be able to catch a rocket inbound into the FOB. That would be a crazy shot.

    welcome aboard. look forward to your shots.
    as tori advised, you would have had an even better result using a faster shutter speed. make sure you switch to manual exposure.
