It looks black to me...

:shrugs: It was a test photo. And I don't have curves.

I think the jpg artifacts are a combination of my sharpening in PS and then photobucket ruining the quality that I gained...

Sac, what numbers do you recommend that I use for USM?

Like, true black. It'll increase contrast and make the pic "pop" more

Yeah, I didn't touch the brightness/contrast on my photo... Just crop, resize sharper, and post.

This is exactly why I plan on sleeping in and not bothering. a billion and one photographers will be taking the same photograph i can take, and I don't really see any point in that when i can spend my time in my comfortable bed.

It really depends on the picture for settings to use in USM. I actually only use Smart Sharpen now. I like the results a lot more.

Well your settings for USM are going to vary depending on how sharp your lens is and camera and everything. A "safe" starting point is around 100, 1, 2 though.

I got my Wi FI in my bedroom right by my front yard. A few buddies are going to be coming over tonight and we are just gonna chill in the front yard on the net and watch it pass. Me and my Cousin will prolly take a few pictures over the times.

I'm not staying up JUST for that. Gonna do some other stuff too.

I'm sitting outside in the lawnchairs with a few of my buddies just kickin back and waiting for the red moon that should be coming.

Gah, 2 macs and My PC... damn Macs...


EDIT: we arent sitting in lawn chairs, just sitting out on a table and chairs I have set up... not like I went out and went 'all out' for this eclipse.

the moon is not impressing me really. I can imagine in the past a lunar eclipse would be pretty scary though.

godmutha****ingdamit.......... I should've gotten up earlier. A call woke me up at 6 because my head ****ing hurt all night and I couldn't wake up earlier. So I rushed to drive somewhere I could see it and it was so faint you could barely see it. I could have gotten a decent shot out, but my tripod is sooo ****y and I had such little time before it dissapeared that I got ****...... godmutha****ingdamit.
