    If I had a camera I'd be wholly confused about what to capture an image of.

      The beauty of digital photography is that you don't have to decide. Just shoot everything and keep what you like.

          imgur.com is a painless way to upload photos and you can easily resize them there too. You don't need an account but it you choose to create an account you can store dozens of photos there for free.

            Actually very cool! I still struggle with moon photos sometimes.

              It seemed to be about shooting manual on a tripod of course and not over exposing it. I got some really nice surface detail with all the dark spots and craters. I forget my settings, but have the photo at home. I can pull up the EXIF data. Maybe I'll post it later on. I would think a whole galaxy would be more of a challenge.

                In some ways it is, but I still struggle a bit with the color balance on some of my moon photos.

                    Very nice!

                    My daily bicycle ride takes me through an area that is popular with bird watchers.

                      Nice shot of that wingspread vulture, williegoat.
                      You got pelicans in AZ?

                        There are some ponds about five miles west of me that are a springtime breeding ground for the American White Pelican. In wingspan, they are second only to the California Condor in North America. The "horn" that you see on top of their beaks is just like a red Corvette to a lady pelican and is only present during mating season.

                        That area has Bald Eagles, Osprey and several varieties of hawks, herons and egrets.

                          Birds are challenging, they move so fast you have to have a camera that locks on and tracks them well. The D7500 is a good piece.

                            With my old D60, I go to shutter priority and manual focus.
                            The pelicans are @ 1/1250s f5.6 200mm
