Thanks, Ladies! The weather hasn't been cooperating for the moonscape photo I've been planning, but I decided to capture some foggy morning shots instead. Thanks to Art Rosch for some digital tips regarding noise filters.

Gorgeous shot Dorothy! I just love early mornings! And I love the color on this shot. What noise filter tips were successful? This is a beauty! -K

Thank you Bonnie, Paul C, Murry and K. Kelly, this is the Helicon Noise Reduction Filter, available free...do a Google search. Art also recommended NeatImage, and said several others were available. I haven't tried the others. Helicon is very easy to use. I finally got into full manual the other day (up to now I've always let the camera pick one or more settings). I've learned that I need to be sensitive to the white balance setting as the sun comes up. Night shots, I've used Tungsten (incandescent) setting, but this makes images too blue as the sun rises. This shot is back to auto white balance. I'm glad you liked the results!

Thanks for the info Dorothy! I'll do a search. I've never used a noise filter before, and I've got a few images that can use them! Congrats again on a beautiful shot! -K

Beautiful image, Dorothy! I love the morning colors and the lights on in the barn. This so nice! The mountains in the background set it off nicely too. I love it :)

Thank you Cathy, Robin, Leanne and Karen. Robin, thanks for the thought this could go higher. I've never had one go higher than finalist...and I'm not holding my breath. But I'm glad you like it.
