Picture of the moon with the Nifty Fifty

There are a lot of pixels on that lovely Sony Nex-7. So many I could crop in the picture.

The Nex-7 has 24.3 MPixel on the sensor. The base file was 6000×4000 (24MP) and the final picture was a square crop 2580×2580 (6.7MP). That’s about 28% still left. 

The point is that I was able to get a picture of the moon including details with a nifty fifty.


The post in this picture includes contrast corrections, treatment and recoloration in Silver Efex and finally export from Adobe Lightroom.
