Lunar Eclipse Composite. 6D, 70-300 @300mm, f16. Kept shutter speed at 1 second or faster. Longer exposures had some Moon edge blurring. ISO varied from 100 to 2500.


I watched this the other day. Maybe it will help since Lightroom can have several processes working at the same time.

Zion National Park in March 2014

I really like the composition of your pictures, which were very well done in all 3 of them. The use of leading lines was well done.

BTW, are these HDRs?...

Thanks Click and RobertG!  Not HDR, at least in the traditional sense, just pushed around in Lightroom. Guess these are in the "make a photo" rather than "take a photo" camp. Call them experimental.

Photography Technique / Re: My first panorama - Tetons What did I do wrong?

Have you thought of using the Warp tool in CS6 to straighten your pano?  I find that Adaptive Wide Angle gets wonky on me sometimes.
Pano1: Your original with grid lines (gray) applied (percentage rather than a fixed number..set that in prefs.)
Pano2: Grid lines in red.  Warp tool in gray. Nudge the Warp tool until the water and horizon are flat.
Pano3: Expand the dramatic sky and move the mountains into the bottom 3rd of the image.  Select the Crop tool and drag the top edge upward.  Flatten the image, then select the expanded section and a few pixels of the sky, then use Content Aware Fill.
Pano4: Finished fix. Clean up any weird stuff in the expanded sky with Spot Healing Brush (content aware.)
