Scouting  by joysabin


Out scouting and double checking things for a shot that I may or may not get. Tomorrow is the last super moon of the year so off to "my" meadow (Kendrick Peak Park) to get my spot chosen and mapped with the compass. I am trying to get the moonset not rise. If this happens, rain and clouds are a concern, I will be up and out at 4:45am. I really wanted to get the moonset at the Grand Canyon but that is 2 hours away so, not this time. I really need to spend the night there when I try for this shot. Anyway, If things fall in my favor, I will post what I get tomorrow.
I love the subtlety and tones - good luck with your moon shot :)

Love the tones and softness of this shot. You are very ambitious, planning and doing your nightshot. I wish I had the same energy to do that, it always stops at the idea stage (and today it is cloudy so I can always blame the weather).

I love this, the colours remind me of a Constable painting

Love this image, it looks like a painting. Did you do some editing on it, if so how? I am new to all this and I am desperate to learn!

@angel_a I was using a lensbaby SOL45 which blurs the sides but I also was shooting in raw format and brought down the clarity slider when I was processed it in Photoshop. If you have windows 10, there is a photo edit program that comes with - there are a filters under enhancements (I think that is the name) that are fun to play with. I like the burlesque one, it makes the image soft with brownish tones. Another edit program, free, has lots of things to play around with. My suggestion, is to play around but also check out youtube for ideas and help. Here is my email if you would like to ask further questions, love to help if I can.
