The moon tonight
Another try at a colour moon.

Anyone ever had dealings with these folks? I met them at a Florida Birding Fest and see they have some items about 10% less than B&H. Thanks for your help.
Two more from Union Station
Here are two more from my Union Station outing. Still comparing color to B&W. Comments welcome.
Low tide at Brooms Head.
A few shots from Brooms Head. Brooms Head is a favorite haunt of mine & this is where I get most of my pelican shots, although they were nowhere to be seen on this visit. Downloading is recommended.
I am learning to use photoshop to make some things like that.
(I know, I see some mistakes in the edition).
Bridge camera vs. mirrorless with a long lens
I'm a little confused about sensor size. I'm looking at a Sony RX 10 IV that has a "1.0 CMOS sensor" having 20.1 mp and also the OM-D E-MI 11 having a "high speed 20 mp Live MOS sensor." What is the difference here? To me the main things that matter are light weight and image quality. The Oly is a bit more expensive and I get that I can put different lenses on it, but I really just want this camera for birding and sports action and would buy the 75-300 zoom and leave it on always. I have my Nikon dslr for everything else. Can someone clear this up for me? Thank you!
Lost in the Mountains
Lost at 1,057 meters above sea level.
A Little Blue on Soft Emerald Green
Experimenting with a Nikon D810 and a Nikon 180mm ED 1:2.8 prime lens with 62mm of extension tubes, no flash. Sitting on the ground resting the camera on my knee.
That was the easy part. Getting myself up off the ground was the hard part. Thanks to all that view and please comment as you desire.
DeNoise and B&W Conversion
When should a photo, that is going to be converted to b&w be denoised? I was in the process of this today and used Topaz DeNoise on the original color photo, and then started doing the conversion in NIK Silver. When the photo came up in NIK I noticed a lot of grain, more than was in the original color. I sent it in b&w form back to Topaz Denoise to run it again and the noise was so bad I couldn't get rid of it without ruining the image. To begin with, the noise was not that bad as it was shot at ISO200. So, is there a best time to run a denoise if you are going to convert to b&w? Another thing I notice in the conversion is that after converting to b&w and saving the image as a jpeg it looks fine. But then, when I try to send the photo to another site such as flickr it appears that it has been oversharpened by a great deal. Any ideas or advice? Thanks.
Earth Day 2
It has been a good day. Hope everyone is well and the sun shone on your path. Number 4 ...I don`t think I have ever seen this species of bird with the green around the eyes. Number one the Blue worked on this fish for quite a while. He did manage to get it down. Thank you for taking the time to look.
