Wigwam Motel, Rialto CA

Testing out some new blog sharpening algorithms, and some night exposures with the Sony RX10 mk2. It appears that although I’m displaying the original size images, WordPress is in fact changing the fine detail ever-so-slightly. Bummer. Might have to go back to uploading to SmugMug, and hotlinking the image URL.

Enjoying the Sony RX10 II for night photography. ┬áConsidering it’s a bit noisy at all ISO’s, 30 sec exposures at ISO 100 feel about the same as ISO 400-800 exposures on my D750, which gives a natural grain look to night shots. I’m actually adding a bit of “silver rich” grain.

Which reminds me, these images are processed in Capture One, not Lightroom. I’ve really been falling out of love with Adobe Camera Raw lately…

Enjoy,

PS: Note Orion visible at the top of this first photo. Sorta visible. (Inland Empire light pollution…) The other two images have a waxing crescent moon in them.
