  • The Belt of Venus

    Last night at dusk a near full moon rose above the Red Gums at Jinjellic. Sometimes one gets lucky!


    Edit: Sharpened 75% on Cathrine's advice for comparison (moon excluded).

    Cracking shot! It could be slightly sharper, but I really like the colours and the exposure of the moon.

        I repeated the 75% sharpening applied to the first and I agree, it definitely makes for a crisper finish.

        Having seen the grotesque effects of oversharpening I tend to err on the side of caution!

        Thanks Cathrine,

          Thanks Chris - the Moon Goddess Selene is among my favourite figures of Greek mythology.
