About

Serene moon contrasting with tattered clouds. I went out to test my new camera and ended up with a portfolio piece that is part of the ongoing series.

I have a new camera. I don’t intend to quit my android photography, but there are some things that you can’t do (yet) with a cellphone, and it will be nice to have the option going forward.

This was a tricky scene to stack, as it involves clouds that were moving and not many anchor points. After several different approaches, I decided to lower my stack down to 5 images only, and stack the moon and clouds separately using Hugin and Imagemagick, I put the resulting image together in Krita, and post processed it in Darktable.

Krita might come across as a strange choice for this, but it is a bit more stable with the large file (16bit, 80Mp), and it is a bit easier to align layers manually than it is currently in GIMP.
