      "Sandhill Crane Moonrise" art shot made at Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico - shot w/ @getolympus OMD EM1 MK II, Olympus 300 f/4 Pro Lens, Olympus 1.4 TC, handheld - processed 100% in @wearemacphun Luminar 2018.

      I photograph the migrating cranes and geese here every year. This year, I got lucky and the cranes came back to roost late after the moonrise. With some practiced, timing, a little luck, and more than a few tries, I got this keeper.

      Oh my gosh, Scott. When you say art shot, what do you mean? It's certainly gorgeous and artistic, but is it a composite? How is the crane not blurry? Were you able to use a wide enough f/stop and high enough ISO to have a fast shutter speed?

      It's an incredible shot!

      Hi Chris not a composite - just mean I am exploring my artistic side. I had to set up on the moon and wait for birds to fly through - took several tries but got this one sharp since it's a Silhouette.

      Shot with Olympus OMD EM1 MK II - Olympus 300 f/4 Pro Lens, Olympus 1.4 TC,
      ISO 800 - 1/3200 - f/5.6, hand held. Post processed in Skylum Luminar
      2018.

      The fact that I can hand hold a shot made with an EFL of 840mm still blows my mind.

      I have several fames with a very similar silhouette and sky that I shot in Bosque on Dec 03, 2015 Maybe that sky is more common at Bosque than I even realized.
