i am not too aware of the term mocktail/cocktail and what's the difference, but bottle said cocktail. so i thought it must be cocktail.

on other note, yesterday being rakhi day(rakshabandhan), i managed to click a full moon with help of newly acquired 5200d tripod.

I don't understand why do we need a tripod to shoot the moon. What's the exif? I use very high shutter speeds (1/500 or more) so I never felt the need for a tripod.

@s0uljah,chevelle: Where is the original color of the moon?

The tripod was new, so just wanted to try it out. basically learn how to use it. as i have never used a tripod before. so i was panning and adjusting the camera all the while getting to know it. i have shot moon hand handled too. not a big deal.

this is the original color of the moon. its just crop to current size so i can upload here. have done nothing to this. i have another same photo if at all you want to see.

here is the exif
camera model: sony dsc h50
flash mode: no
focal length: 78mm
f-number: F/4.5
Exposure time: 1/640 second
Metering mode: Pattern
Exposure Compensation: 0 step
iso 80
optical zoom: 15x

this is all i could find in windows picture manager. if i missed something let me know.

Original colour as per RAW shooting in camera is this.. WB settings also will change the colour

Well, to my eyes it has a blue color cast. The moon in your picture appears too white. To naked eyes, Moon looks a bit yellow, doesn't it?

It must be your WB settings, who's the culprit here.

I have not done any color adjustments in the picture that I've posted. Just worked on the brightness (RGB) curve, so it might have increased the saturation a little bit, but the hue is the same as that of the original RAW image.

Guys, can you suggest me a free software on the net to download for stitching pics to create a panorama.

I had put the same question a few days back in the PS thread but didnt get any reply.

I am not sure, but 'gimp' will surely have that feature.

GIMP does not have this feature. However another open source program has this feature, and a lot more
hugin - Panorama photo stitcher
It can do perspective correction too!

A simple "apt-get install hugin" and it is on my computer. Will take it for a spin later. Thanks for the tip Tanveer.
