The Moon via iPhone

Chase Jarvis has just posted a fabulous photo of the moon and brief description over at his blog.

For those of you who haven’t wandered off to take a look; it is a neat photo, taken through a telescope using an iPhone (whatever that is).

The photo is sharpish and clear with quite a good amount of detail. All in all, a nice piece of work. But how much is down to the iPhone and how much is a result of a good telescope isn’t mentioned.

And it wasn’t enhanced in Photoshop, a good thing apparently.

Hang on Mr Jarvis. I just noticed something. You pointed out that there was no photoshopping involved, but there is a sneaky little mention there of some work done in Aperture. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t Aperture a photo-enhancement program too. But just not from Adobe, right?

So tweaking in Aperture is OK but for some reason tweaking in Photoshop is wrong? Can someone please explain this to me? How come using Photoshop is now a bad thing?

I often see this statement in posts and hear it from smug individuals: “Oh I don’t use Photoshop (sneer), I do all my work in Lightroom”.

Well, you people, I use Photoshop, and for your information, Adobe Camera Raw, supplied with Photoshop, is pretty much Lightroom. And that is what I use to do my “adjustments”, OK? Are we straight on that now?

    I couldn’t agree more. What is this aversion to admitting to using Photoshop ? It is almost becoming a dirty word.. it is just a digital darkroom and the most comprehensive one at that.
