Landrum Kelly Thanks, Arup. I see now that the larger version really shows pixelation, especially on the edges. Even the medium size on most monitors has gone just beyond optimal resolution. Next time I shall have to use the 1.4X TC--and perhaps stick the same lens on a cropped sensor camera as well to get larger files which I can then downsample for optimal resolution without digital artifacts and pixelation, if I am going to try for this level of magnification. (Perhaps I should just haul out the old Orion 80mm APO refractor and admit that camera lenses really cannot do what I want to do.) Thanks for visiting. Love your photos of India. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly Thank you, Sumon. --Lannie

Thank you, Ivana and Tom--and you, too, Patrick I can do that, Patrick--as soon as I get my photo printer set up in this room where I have moved my computer to. Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoy Debussy. --Lannie

Ivana Vostrakova
Very interesting photo! If you have a time, look at (vostrakova - Requiem - czech gallery) : Best regards, Ivana

Lannie: Great Photo! Happy Thanksgiving. Tom

Nice shot... I have shot the moon on film, but have not yet posted any shots on my page...I had to look up Claire de Lune to understand the reference, but I liked it and ended up downloading the piano version. I also like some of the other shots in your portfolio. I'll take another look...and perhaps ask for a signed copy of one I like...if you do that sort of thing? Patrick in WI.

Moon in the Afternoon II This is cropped and blown up a bit from an earlier posting--or from a sister shot made the same afternoon. Comments welcome.
