    I took these the other night and I am pretty pleased! I did a little work on photoshop to some of them. Next time I'm out at night taking pics I will try to work on my ISO to get rid of some of the grain that came out in these, but I think for some of them it works!

    UFO or airplane? LOL This photo reminds me of the song Airplanes by BOB.

    I couldn't see any stars in the sky when I took this. Certainly was a surprise when I uploaded the photos!

    The full size photo of this is not nearly as grainy as it is reduced to this size. I did some work on this one because I wanted the trees nearly black and the moon to really pop. I might have to print this one up to hang in my room!

    A couple of weeks ago I bought a Canon 50D and I love it! The first was taken with my 70-300mm lens and the others with my 28-135mm lens.

    Thanks guys!

    RoPo,

    Send me your email address and I will send the full file of the moon to you. Eventually I would love to be able to sell some of my photos, but I'm willing to send out some freebies to get started! I got some photos printed as 8X10s at Walmart the other day and they came out awesome. The moon photo I did crop and edit a bit, so I'm not sure what size would be best to print it out if that's what you wanted to do. However, it does make an awesome background on the computer!

    Callducks,

    Thanks! I've been practicing a lot and I'm trying to get a bit more creative with my photos using variations of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings. There's just sooo much to learn!
