Eagles and Vultures

Caught during my recent trip to NainiTal.

Their poise while gliding across the valley is remarkable.

Yes, they are all with the Nikon V1, handheld. I liked the balance in cool and warm tones. it's not too biased either to the cold side or to the warm side. There is no post on these except a bump in clarity in Lightroom. I am in love yet again!

How do you get such blue tones? What WB were they shot in?

Was at the Chinese Parade in DC last year, here's one from there. Shot with a Panasonic G1 + Olympus 45mm f1.8. Gotta love this lens, am impressed by the colors and the sharpness of it. Can't get enough of it.

Of times to come?

Tx Clevermax,

Beercan is one which is left over from my Sony Kit...so far just could not get over it but now have posted it for sale...an immaculate copy...

The rest that look like Beercan are Canon 55-250 IS and Canon 70-300 IS USM

Another two that may look like Beercan are Cosina 28-200 and a Makinon 200mm f4.5...The list is only growing :-)

Can someone help me with photographing the moon. What are the right settings? when is the right time to shoot the moon? Are there any other techniques involved?
Try shooting in the manual mode with ISO 100, Aperture F11 (little lower will also work fine) and shutter speed of anything between 1/60 - 1/250 and you should be able to get a decent shot with the details of the moon visible after it has been cropped. Let us know how it has turned out after you try.

even I am not too sure :-)...Have a Lowepro 200 bag, a Canon Bag, a Generic Bag, a big Plastic box and some hardboard boxes...The weather in Hyderabad is good so fungus is not an issue.

I guess will need an Almirah of my own pretty soon...The stuff is anyways not complete in that picture :-)

Yea you should get a weather sealed almirah. More than humidity, its also the dust & bugs that can create problems. When you have plenty, there is more chance of getting some of them into 'idle' stage. Not sure if this entire discussion needs to go to the DSLR thread than being here !

Hi Avinash,

The above shot was taken with my 50 D + 400mm 5.6 L + 2x TC

Manual Exposure @ 1/100, f/11, ISO 320, Hand Held

Gurus comments and help please

P.S: I have not cropped it tighter so that you can see the actual pixels when you expand
Those are pretty decent shots for a first attempt

Every photographer, at some point or the other, is intrigued by the beauty of the moon. It was the same with me. I wanted to capture this beauty in my camera, but this was by no means as easy as it looked..

Here's what I've learnt from over the period..

I try to go with the lowest possible ISO and an aperture of around f/8. This is the sharpest point on my lens & I try to stick to this. The shutter speeds would vary with the different phases of the moon and its position in the sky. My general starting settings on a nice clear sky are something like this..

Full Moon : 1/320, f/8, ISO 100
Half Moon : 1/160, f/8, ISO 100
Crescent Moon : 1/100, f/8, ISO 200

From here, you can adjust as per the exposure you get.

If you have an image stabilized lens, then you'll probably get the best results while hand holding with IS on & manual focus.

The most important factor in getting a sharp shot of the mood with good crater detail is to get an ACCURATE FOCUS. The best way to achieve this critical focus is to use live view and manual focus at 5x/10x magnification.

Also, you get better results when the moon is high up in the sky or straight above you. At this position, its brighter and there's less atmosphere/haze between the moon and the camera.

I hope this if of help

Shot with Canon PnS,

Aperture priority
Aperture- f/8
ISO-100
EV-0

Comments welcome. The lens flare is too harsh. Any tips to overcome those?
