Re: Communal Night-Sky Photography Thread

Many thanks for commenting, Wornish. I hadn't got as far as finding galleries yet, so have enjoyed looking at your photos. Clearly, there's a long way to go before tackling deep-space objects like the Andromeda galaxy

I did increase the sharpening when I reduced the size of the image, since I felt it brought out the '3D' effect on, for example, the Appenine Mts. I was trying to produce 'impact' rather than an 'analytical' image of the moon's features but, of course, there is always the matter of taste and I may well back off a little in future. I was, frankly, amazed at what could be extracted from the images by post-processing

I've been browsing the 'before and after' thread and have always believed that image processing is an integral part of photography (going back to darkroom days and the work of people like Ansel Adams)
