STORY: I was going over some of my older images today. I found an old black and white image I made out of an original color file around 2017. I don't remember the details of what brought me to the Orlando Wetlands that day. However, I do remember being hot and thirsty there. I had left my water back at the car and had been wandering for a few hours. Still, it was November, so the heat wasn’t nearly as bad. I recently acquired a new lens, the Tamron 24-70mm G2, and I was itching to take it out. In my hurry to use the lens, I left the water behind. Before thirst drove me back to the car, I looked up and saw the half-moon rising over a stand of trees. I thought the composition looked promising. Reviewing the photo later on the computer, I wanted to make the moon to pop. The moon appeared as a moon-shaped cloud in the color version. Converting it to black and white provided the pop I wanted. The lens also performed beautifully. It has been with me since helping me capture fantastic images.



EXIF: Exposure ISO 640, f/22, 1/250 a second — focal length 70mm with Tamron's 24-70mm G2 on a Nikon's D610. Files shot in RAW with Adobe RGB color space. Edits - Primary photo edits in Lightroom Classic with the final black and white conversion in Luminar 1.0.
