Today I thought that I would share the phases of a photograph of the moon. The following three images are actually all the same image and show just what can be achieved with Adobe Lightroom after a photo is, shall we say, slightly overexposed – alright a lot over exposed actually.
The first image is the original out of the camera RAW file with no processing applied and when I first saw it I thought that there was going to be no saving it at all. The image was taken around 10pm one March night in 2011.
Canon 5d MkII, EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS USM, 1/2000 @ f5.6, ISO 6400 at 260mm
The following Lightroom processing was then applied to the image and it was then turned into black and white:
White Balance: Daylight
