Full Moon (March 2013)

_DSC1774

The sensor in the D600 is so much better than that in the D200.  I’ve taken a number of full moon pictures with the 70-300mm 1:3.5-4.5 zoom (at 300mm) with the D200 which is an equivalent of a 450mm lens and nothing is close to the detail I’m getting with the D600.

The moon shot was exposed in manual mode with ISO 400 at F/11 for 1/125 sec. Massaged in Lightroom 4.  Click on the image to see it bigger.

I haven’t been too keen on black and white photography for a while but never say never.  This image was OK as a color photo but converting it to black and white really worked.  There is something about the lighting on his forehead and face that pops.  I used a Lightroom 4 preset from David duChemin from a new book that I am now reading.  More on the book and the author after I get finished with the book. I posted this image on 500px and was pleased that it made the Popular page.
