Mars


Shot with the Olympus E620, 12-60mm @ 60mm, 2seconds ISO800.

30% crop, noise reduction and spot USM on Mars. No other manipulation.
What do you think?

Re: Mars

OK, it's blurry and small but by heck... what a cracking library shot. How on earth did you know where to look for that?

Re: Mars

It was on the news about the Moon and Mars:
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/21/20100128...w-4b158bc.html

I went out my garden and saw this bright orange light next to the moon, first instinct was to grab the camera and then shoot like a mad paparazzi. Not all shots worked but out of curiosity, I shoot only the Mars light to see what I'd get on the computer. Wasn't expecting more details than a bright orange light!

Indeed it's a shame that it's tiny and soft, would have been nice if I had a 50-250mm or longer! :/

Re: Mars

Saw it but didn;t bother to take pic - thought I'd not get anything with my 40-150 lens - lesson learnt - if in doubt snap away.

Here's a pic of the moon I took a few months ago will be trying again on saturday.

Re: Mars

Wow excellent shot for 60mm I tried shooting with my 300mm and couldn't get anywhere near this scale. I tried at 9pm as the news suggested maybe that was too late

However heres a shot I took last night with my E1 and 40 - 150 handheld

Re: Mars

I had a few attempts at Mars last night with the 50-200mm I got from Steve (Wreckdiver) yesterday, none were great though but I am quite happy with this moon shot.
