    Very nice pic I like the way the head stands out so brightly against the soft focus background.

    Doug, you said Cats. I see one! Is that misses DougB?

    CD? I have MANY of them. Know them well! Still prefer them for high quality audio reproduction. Do I see some LP's in the Top left? Have many of those also including some Sheffield Direct to Disk's that sound AMAZING.

    Cool Pic BTW. I love cats. Join my FB sometime and I will show you my kitties.

    Technically, I said "kitty's"!

    Yep, that's Mrs. B... in all of her "having just woken up" glory! And good eye.. those are just a few of my (mostly new) 180g. vinyl pressings up there. I only wish I was able to play them. Problem is that my apartment is very old, and leans like the Tower Of Pisa. I have shims on pretty much everything that isn't heavy enough to bolt its self down, and the walls probably aren't sturdy enough for me to mount Birch wood and brackets to hold my turntable.

    The other problem with the building being old is that when big trucks go down the boulevard (which we live right on), everything shakes! I love my neighborhood, but can't wait until we move because of those issues.

    That building sounds scary! Is it safe I hope?

    Agreed, when a truck drove by, your turntable would probably skip all over the LP! I have lived in houses with very shaky floors and had many issues with my Turntables. In one the back of the fireplace was in my music room and I mounted a shelf on the fireplace brick to keep the turntable from being shaken by that shaky floor!

    Nice pic Doug!

    I'm fond of cats too and I also have a bunch of SeeDees around the place, though not a lot of vinyl. My linear tracking arm turntable bit the dust several years ago and I never got around to replacing it.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Wow, it's gorgeous there! Great place to do some astral photography. What's the story with that photo... What time was it, shutter speed, aperture, focal length etc etc.. Well done.

    Well, it's pretty much thanks to my Dad that I made this photo.
    He suggested at 10:52 PM that I try photograph the moonlight lake, so I bundled up and went out to see what I could do
    Not having ever tried something like this before I just dialed in what I thought would work and hoped for the best.

    EXIF
    Camera: Nikon D7000
    Lens: 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 Nikkor
    Program: Manual
    Exposure: 13 seconds
    Aperture: f/3.5
    ISO Speed: 100
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    Capture Time: 22:52:59

    This alone produced a rather dark looking RAW image.

    I probably should have exposed longer so I wouldn't have had to to re-adjust so much in Lr afterwards but for some reason that silly display
    on the back of the camera always looks better than what you see on the computer!

    In Lr,
    I bumped the exposure from 0 to 2
    Reduced Blacks from 5 to 2
    Increased the Brightness from 50 to 100
    Increased the contrast by from 25 to 50
    Then I played with the Tone Curve so long until I was satisfied

    PS: Exiftool is awesome, using this command in a folder of images
    exiftool -model -LensModel -ExposureProgram -WhiteBalance -ExposureTime -FNumber -ISO -FocalLength -FocalLengthIn35mmFormat ./*.jpg >> exif.txt

    Produces this output. Almost forum ready!

    All things considered, you did a good job of recovering things in LR. Have you downloaded LR Beta 4 yet? it's got some excellent enhancements going on for it such as a much improved highlight slider (takes the place of the recovery slider) and all of the other adjustments are able to be brushed in selectively. (such as highlights, noise removal etc.. )

    In regard to checking the LCD on the back of your D7000... it will never be reliable if you're shooting RAW. That little preview is a tiny jpg that is attached to the RAW file and uses the in camera settings, but is still limited by the actual lcd its self in terms of what you see.

    Use the meter and get to know it well. Use the histogram and get to know it just as well. Interestingly, everything on the LCD of my D300 is darker than the NEF always turns out by at least one stop or more. Also remember that when you're shooting in the dark towards a landscape, it's probably better to spot meter. That will at least give you the most accurate baseline to work with since most of the sky is dark.

    Good thing you used the base ISO, or else you would have pulled out some pretty nasty noise!

    Doug

    P.S. Did you know that you can just drop an image or a series of images into terminal (after having launched terminal and after having typed "exiftool" followed by a space) and you'd get the same results?
