my first 3 pics accepted!

posted on 13th of january, 2012

I want to share my joy with you - after a massive uploads and rejects, 3 of my works are accepted :)
unfortunately, looks like all my photos with canon a95 powershot camera not compliance technically with this site standarts, as so no one of that works is accepted ( it is sadly, because most of my pics is taken with "mobile and everyday" compact, and some of that, i think, in the artistic value, is ok. but, what do...from now i try to use dslr more hardy ;)
PS try to learning to photoediting with GIMP too ( reduce noise and try to remove shadow from flash on one candidate photo, but until now - without sucess...;)

Thanks, friends! :)
about moon: thanks too, but i think, i far away from really good telescopic pics, including moon in prime focus ( who, on other hand, imho, is easiest of space objects, to shot ).
my lovest moon photo is on afocal method, taked with powershot a95 compact via telescope and eyepiece:
but thats pics have a lot ¨defects¨ like a chromatism, not focus on pics edge ( field curvature? ) and another thinks, who make them impossible to publish :)
as so i try to get moon in prime focus, with extender, for more detail view. on other hands - i see a ¨closeup moon¨ is very well covered topic in dreamstime ;)

thanks to all! :)
on astronomy i more specialised on visual moon and planets. dso is not so effective views in small appertures ( under 12 - 14"imho ), as so, until i relocate to live out of city, i look on planets in general ;)
serious astrophoto, in other hands ( not so newbie, as my, single shot ), especially DSO photo is very expensive for me on both aspects - in money, and by time consuming, especially for images post-processing.

Congrats Janis!!! Keep it up. Learning good photo editing will also increase the number of images accepted.
I am also an astronomer with a special interest in observing our moon and star.

About me

As i dislike cities, and in a way to living in rural site, i like to shot a nice nature sights, wild animals and birds, sky with interesting clouds, and as a astronomer - also moon and so on via telescopes. Also i use small telescope as telephoto lens for wild animals and bird shooting at 400mm focus ( really with my camera crop factor of 1.6x it works as nearly 600mm lense ). Not loving post processing, as so, i try to take a maximal good, natural shots. I would be grateful to those buyers who let me know how and where my images are used. It can be done by commenting the image... [Read more]
