The Picture Thread VII: Stay Focused

Post by RJDiogenes »

And the new Picture Thread has developed.

emma sent me some new pics:

Image
This is emma heading out for Dial-A-Ride yesterday.

Image
Here is the Moonrise. A nice picture, but too blurry to blow it up like the last one.

Image
And here is the full Moon at night. Again, too blurry to blow up, but I was able to enhance the details of the street.

Image
And here is Leo sitting pretty this morning. :sweetlove:

Leo had to walk in the cold and dark? I bet he didn't like that.

No, he didn't. He raced home and rushed inside when Jim finally got the door open.

emma sent us more roses and her neighbor's kitty, who I was able to zoom in on and enhance:

Image
:)

:wiggle:

This morning, I went down to the Bay and Caddy Park for some pictures, but I didn't last long. Got some pretty good ones, though:

Image
A walking trail near the park.

Image
Squirrel!

Image
Marshland near the park.

Image
This is the tidal pool or whatever it is in the park, hardly recognizable in this condition.

Image
This looks cozy.

Image
And here's a view across the Bay.

Image
And the Boston skyline with a nice post-blizzard morning sky.

It's a Canon PowerShot SX400IS. Not too expensive either.

Seems similar to the Rebel. What settings did you use for the Moon shot? Did you use a tripod?

Yeah, at the limits of the zoom you just can't keep your hand steady enough. The regular setting seems to work on the moon pretty well.
