satellite love (before and after)
I thought this would be a good photo for my before and after series. This is the original, unprocessed photo:
I shot this with a Nikon D90 and 16-85mm lens at 85mm. When I took this photo I knew that I would try cropping it in post processing. I really wanted to zoom in closer on the satellite dishes and the moon but didn't have a longer lens with me at the time. Fortunately, the photo was high enough quality to allow for the cropping-- this is an instance where having a 12mp sensor verses 6mp really comes in handy.
Aside from the cropping, I really just darkened the whole image, and boosted the saturation a bit in the sky. I did this all with Adobe Camera RAW.
