BB-63 Battleship Missouri docked at Pearl Harbor. Japanese surrendered on this ship ending World War 2. Took this shot on the last helo ride I was on. Difficult to get a shot like this but I was lucky our aircraft had authorization to fly over controlled airspace.

I guess I forgot to post this one sooner, but here are gulls on the remnants of a pier. It was a pretty cold, windy afternoon and I had to keep on taking shots in the hopes of getting one that wasn't too badly blurred. Kind of difficult, but I can't remember another time when I saw the gulls like this, so yeah. I had to get it.

I was visiting my late wife at the DFW National Cemetary on her birthday (May 17) and I took this pic of a tree nearby her grave. I thought it was a cool pic.

Been awhile since I have taken a moon pic...tonite the sky was very clear and crips....got some good detail on the craters....
bastard, i just tested my tamron 150-600 g2 tonight. i feel so inadequate :disrelieved: :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy: seriously excellent shot as usual :)

my first real time shooting the moon, and i'm looking at my photos wondering why they aren't sharp...but my 1/2000s shots are excellent. that MFer MOVES at 600mm focal length! would be even more on a crop sensor and 1.4x TC!

also hilariously, lightroom's auto processing took the moon from looking like a moon to a space station....

as shot @ 600mm, 1/2000s, f/6.3, ISO 800
just a photo comment here that f/6.3 is the widest aperture for this lens at 600mm, and i feel the image has excellent sharpness. usually lenses will appear a bit soft at the widest aperture.

lightroom's auto-process - seriously does look like the death star :tearsofjoy:

That Auto option on LR sometimes produces the weirdest results, lolol. As for the Moon moving, yeah, I saw on Reddit people using trackers to capture more images or frames and then stacking them using some astrophotography software to get super sharp results. If it was some other, more distant, astronomical object, you could do the tracking manually by basically just moving the camera to keep the object centered and shooting over and over.

Here's three beautiful Hawaiian ladies that are part of the crew that ran a big luau of which I shot pics and vids. Epic entertainment and food. Too bad I was too busy taking pics and vids to enjoy any of that. This pic was post processed through the latest iteration of Portrait Pro and finished up with PS 2024, of which I found both are absolutely worth the price paid.

played around with my tamron 150-600 G2 at the local park at sunset. all shot handheld. it's pretty heavy but the VR helps a lot at slower shutter speeds.

and now that i've gone through my photos, i knew i had a lot of ducks...but damn, basically ALL the photos are ducks.

there are ducks in this pic, but the subject isn't ducks at least!
150mm, 1/60s, f/5, ISO2000 (and a lot of processing/noise reduction)

Very cool. I'm jealous.
