Playing With the Moon

Please click on the first photo to enlarge all and really see the difference between these shots of the moon all taken within two minutes of each other.


These photos, although all different shots, all appeared alike in the beginning.  Their differences came about through changes in cropping, exposures, brightness, sharpness, edges, saturation and color in my Mac Photos app that came with my computer.  The thing that amazes me most is all the stars that can be seen in some of the photos that were not noticeable by means of the human eye before I started sharpening the photos.  The red in the first photo is tall palm trees.  They should have been evident in the other photos as well, but they weren’t.  I think I used a flash in that photo only. I was in the pool around midnight, using my waterproof Nikon camera. Please note, also, the photo where the moon appears to be heart-shaped.  Love that one. And the one where the moon appears to have its own moon.  I don’t know what that was.  Perhaps a star?

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
