Wednesday Window to the World #4


Here's a good way to keep the rust off! 

Since I'm spotlighting collected historical color photos each Monday, it seemed only fitting to complement this feature with a present day color photo of my own each Thursday.  Just as with the collected photos, I'll detail the Who/What/When/Where/Why and technical How from each image:

This Week:

What: The Supermoon


Why: I'd intended to get out for a photo ramble on Sunday morning, but aside from a nature walk, it never wound up happening.  Fortunately, I was able to get this photo that evening when the clouds were thin enough to let the acclaimed "Super Moon" shine through, as it was low on the horizon.  

When: August 10, 2014.

Where: Over Columbia, MD   

Who: The Man in the Moon.   

How: Olympus Pen E-PM2 with Konica Hexanon 200mm/3.5 lens. f/4 aperture at 1/50 shutter speed at ISO 2000.

Raw image was imported into Photoshop and sliders were manipulated to keep the image dark enough but to allow the color and details of the trees in shadow to still emerge.  All told, a pleasing result with only the most modest of tweaking.
