  1. Greetings Readers, I have been photographing the moon to obtain ultimately 8 pictures depicting 8 phases. Presented today is my latest image: The Waning Gibbous Moon. This Waning Gibbous Moon appears opposite to the Waxing Gibbous Moon and both these moon images are displayed in this composite image. The second image shows these moon images as obtained from the camera raw files. Notice that the waxing moon is appreciably larger than the waning moon and this is because the moon is now further away away by 30,526km ! Tomorrow (10-07-20) will be the best time to obtain an image of the waning gibbous moon BUT it will be raining and the moon wil be away by a further 5000km. Well one cannot win them all. Jeremy.
  2. Greetings Readers, In collecting moon pictures to make a composite picture we received 5 very clear days and nights. On each night I took a picture of the moon and processed the images in Affinity Photo. These images show the waxing (getting brighter) moon on 5 consecutive evenings. The first (waxing crescent moon), third(first quarter moon) and fifth(waxing gibbous moon) seem good enough to include in my final composite picture. The top sequence contain the original images and the colour saturated version is the bottom sequence. Jeremy
  3. Greetings to All, Here is a picture of the moon to be included in my montage of moon phase images in colour. This image is short listed to be included in my montage of moon phase images in colour. All image processing was done in Affinity Photo (excellent program!) For those who are interested: The colour saturation was obtained in a 5 stage process (5 adjustment layers) of gradually increasing levels of colour saturation. This colour saturation process will amplify colour noise so one must start with a "low noise image. The low noise image was obtained by stacking 15 images (noise averaging - Greek letter Mu) to give about 4x improvement. For crescent images we might try stacking 25 images for an improvement of x5. I am trying to find a logical explanation for the green light over the craters. Regards, Jeremy.
  4. I am still learning my way through AP and have started re-working some of my old images which are now much improved vs my old editing techniques in PS Here is my 1st main attempt using AP This is IC5070 Pelican nebula in Cygnus tone mapped using Sii as Red, Ha as green and Oiii as Blue. 9x5min each colour channel. Stacked and aligned in Astroart, Initial stretching and development in Startools then colour re-combination, balancing, additional tone mapping and sharpening in AP. BTW - AP did these final stages in a fraction of the time PS takes. Clear Skies
  5. Hi all, Here the result of a long night chasing the last milky way for this year. It is a stack of 42 shots edited in Affinity photo with develop persona, plus other 2 for the foreground and the person (that's me!) shooting light to the universe. Sky has been stacked in sequator software, than the compositing has been done in AP, with all the fine tune required. 2 little problem found: - developing raw one by one it takes a long time; a method to apply raw settings to the entire group would be very usefull - TIFF exported from AP have something wrong. I faced several errors with them and I don't know why. It seems something well known… (using JPG everything went smooth, but I lost the 16 bit and you know, jpg… bah…) However, here the final result. Hope you like it. Have a great week end, see ya! G:
  6. Captured and colorized an image of the nearly full moon, then used the mirror effect to convert the moon into a mandala.
  7. The following are edited from RAW files from the Nikon D5300.
  8. Hi everyone I have recently expanded my photographic hobby into astrophotography. Some time ago I watched a tutorial on the stacking feature in Affinity and thought I would give it a crack with some images I've taken in the last three or four weeks. I have to say that I am very happy with the the very first images I took and ran through Affinity. The process is somewhat quicker than dedicated stacking programs for astro but the results (for me) are very very satisfying. I thought that perhaps those that are interested could post their images and discuss different processing techniques that they have used. So I guess I'll get the ball rolling with my first astro edited with Affinity Clear skies D
  9. A composite of the Blood Moon of 2019.01.20,21 made of a focus stack of the full moon and an exposure stack taken during max umbra
  10. Hey again, it's been ages since I actually shared some of my work in this forum. Over the course of getting imagery for the tutorials, I've also produced some final pieces that I'm happy with. Recently I've been tackling tutorials for astrophotography/star image editing as well as light painting, so there have been a few late nights! My favourite so far is a light painting composite near my home: Rail Tracks by James Ritson, on Flickr Then a light painting of Rufford Abbey (although I think I narrowly avoided a run-in with security): Rufford Abbey by James Ritson, on Flickr Followed by another light painting composite underneath an old railway bridge. This one's a little scrappy and I'm not sure how I feel about it at the moment: Under The Bridge 01 by James Ritson, on Flickr Moving on, a combination of star photography and light painting at Rufford Lake: Rufford Lake 01 by James Ritson, on Flickr And then a shot of the night sky, which was achieved by stacking 50 images (shot at ISO 6400, 1s long each) and pushing the tones quite severely to produce a vibrant result: Still Sky 01 by James Ritson, on Flickr That's about it for now - some of the above imagery is used in the recent tutorials and I plan to hopefully produce some more videos in the future covering these areas of photography. There are a few more images on my 500px and Flickr accounts as well if you're interested! Thanks, James

    AP - Orion

    Hi all, I'm quite new to this whole photography thing... I'm really interested in nighttime photography, experimenting with different exposure lengths etc. and I had a go at shooting star constellations, in this case Orion. I just want some honest (not too honest!) feedback about the photo. it's a single shot, so appreciate there is a lot of noise in it. On AP, I played around with the exposure levels, temperature, contrast. Thank you Soul
  12. It's been a long, long time since I posted anything. :huh: I saw a program on the two eccentric artists on the box, so armed with two photographs that I've take on my Fuji bridge camera, I decided to give it a bash... The girl in question was my ex-stepdaughter; who strangely didn't like this shot of her by the beach. :huh: All comments welcome... SaveSave a little bit of G&G.afdesign
