A 1928 Mercury Silver Dime. I got this as change from a grocery store tonight. Someone must have emptied a piggy bank. The coin is not in very good condition. Image taken with a Nikon D3x and 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens.
I didn’t have anything from previous years for this day so I went out and took an image of the moon tonight. The image was taken with a D3x and 400 mm AF-S f/2.8 D II with a AF-S TC20EIII teleconverter. ISO 100, 800 mm, 1/200 sec, f/8. Processed using Capture NX2, Photoshop CS5, Focus Magic, converted for web and sRGB using Photoshop CS5. The white balance in the camera was 3030 °K. This probably could be made a bit warmer.
