Shot yesterday and it is about the first time that I can get the moon right (almost right since the long exposure makes the crescent bigger than it was), but the Sony files have an incredible dynamical range. The file type was set to uncompressed raws. The camera/captor did even see the unlighted part of the moon, which isn't visible with naked eyes. I'm still impressed. I kept the aperture at F6.3 because I wanted to get the moon sharp too. I kept the ISO at 200 in order to get the max DR. But I may try with a higher ISO and a larger aperture in order to get shorter exposure times. That is : if the clouds go away this night.

BTW. Just received your PM...Many thanks.
Strangely I drove down to St Michael's Mount today (our castle in the sky).
Spent the day photographing it from various angles... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Michael%27s_Mount
And yes, the moon does become somewhat egg-shaped with its unlit half showing up. I think that is unavoidable no matter what.
Too much to list, let's just say I have a bad case of GAS.........
When will someone please fix the title of this thread? Being a person afflicted/blessed by OCD (select one!), it gives me the Jimmies every time I receive an email notification!

Excellent work everyone! Too many to mention individually.
I've been trawling my archive and decided not to sell my A7 even though I find it very frustrating (unlike my Fuji which I love to use). However my Contax 35mm f1.4 needs full format to shine, so I am going to persevere. Here is one from last year that I overlooked......

Thanks for your comment... but may be you didn't read what I wrote above the picture ;-) I'm well aware of the question of star trails, since I have also taken some shots at the Milkyway those past two years. The rule of thumb for astro photography is 500/focal length. So here 500/90mm so ideal exposure time would be 5 sec. I chose not to up the ISO, because you loose a lot of DR and then all the highlights, including the moon get burned. I could have open the aperture a bit more, may be that I was a little too conservative there. That said, I'm not really bothered by the star trails, a bit more by the moon : the small waning crescent was very nice to see, but I liked how the other half was also showing up. I didn't have a chance to try again yesterday evening, it was too cloudy.
A few full spectrum shots with the A7r-FS and Sony 10-18 in APSC mode. First and last time for this lens on the A7r because of poor performance with blurry/smeared edges. Works perfectly on my A6300 that I loaned to my son for a trip to Germany.

'Whiteworks - Foxtor Mire - Dartmoor' - Barry, this is outstanding! I feel like I'm standing there with you.
Joe - capturing the innocence and joy of childhood is, I think, just about the best type of picture making that one can do. Thanks for sharing that picture of your Granddaughter.

I would have hated myself for pushing you in!....just so I could save my own skin
Agree...Joe captures the perfect moment with his Granddaughter...She poses wonderfully in front of his camera.
Those clouds of yours are wonderful! Just as we get over on Dartmoor....you would love it there....huge potential for photography that I or others have never tapped into.

1. of August is our national holiday. Since I can walk, we bought "Rageetli" (swiss word for "small rockets" but means firework) and "Frauefürz" (directly translated it is "woman fart" but are lady crackers) and fooled around with it. Also this year with more than 40 years old.

Having grown up in India, we had Diwali, the festival of lights each year where fireworks are a major part of the fun. Even in the US these past 30-some years we've celebrated the same way but in New York fireworks are banned, so we end up going to my brother's place in Connecticut. The neighbors think we are having a late July 4th

Seb : The last of your pictures is my favorite. Simple but effective.
I did also take some firework pictures from my window, but can't post in this thread because it was shot with the Olympus E-M5II. But I posted a few in the MFT forum here : http://www.getdpi.com/forum/4-3rds-c...tml#post701195
I was also busy reprocessing pictures I had taken back in 2006 with a Canon 5Dclassic. Some are visible in the PAW thread here : http://www.getdpi.com/forum/artful-i...tml#post701044
But I'll go back to the A7rm2 soon and hopefully be able to post a picture in this thread again. Meanwhile I admire the skills demonstrated here by the last pictures shown.
That's mighty impressive Barry! ^^^^^
A few new ones from this morning (more tree's I'm afraid).....

It's hard to believe looking at the sorry state of it now, that it was once a very nice hotel with a reasonable restaurant, friends of ours used to stay here and none of us can believe the unfortunate demise of the place
These are the views from Port Gaverne looking straight up the coast Northwards towards Tintagel...Tintagel is just left, on the Horizon.

........That's been my unexpected surreal picture for today!!.......that people in South Carolina watch Doc Martin!! What on earth can they make of it's whimsical stupidity?....They probably think that all of us here are like that and Doc is 'normal'......one can just imagine them sitting around sipping mint juleps (whatever that is) and guffawing over those crazy limies.......
........it's about time there was an episode where the good doctor was pushed into the harbour and left to drown.
