this seems to have gotten separated from the main Arizona sunsets thread.

I had trouble the first time I tried to edit that post and add the second picture. I had to restart the edit, rewrite the description and re-upload the picture. What do you think of the pictures?

I took a picture of today's sunset and compared it with my previous sunsets. It didn't look very different, so I am posting some early pictures I haven't seen here. The middle picture below was taken by my brother and I am not sure if it hasn't been edited.

DSC01655.JPGArizona sunsets    DSC01655a.jpgArizona sunsets   12-22-18 Blue moon.jpgArizona sunsets

Blue(daytime) moon taken in town yesterday. 2nd picture inpainted to get rid of tree and power lines. 3rd picture cropped and inpainted to get rid of power lines.

12-22-18 Perspective sunset .jpgArizona sunsets

Panorama of yesterday's sunset. This is a very high-res panorama, if you look closely you can see Mt. Graham Observatory.

Clipboard01.jpgArizona sunsets

ICE saved this as a 36.4 MB file. I couldn't upload that here(too big), so I resized it in Irfanview to 99% size and it is now 2.41 MB. Must be an ICE thing.

12-28-18 Snow on east mountains 2.jpgArizona sunsets

We got rain and snow last night. This is a panorama of the east mountains.

12-28-18 Last snow of the year 2.jpgArizona sunsets

This is a panorama of the snow on 2 other sides of our view(N & W). it was 264 MB before I reduced it to 99% in Irfanview. That was still 30.5 MB, so I reduced that to half-res to get this 8.87 MB 30882 x 2609 version. The previous version is 61764 x 5218 (let me know if you want that version).  It may not be the last snow of 2018, but there are only 3 days left in it.

We got snow overnight(and it's still snowing), so these are not the best pictures, but we did get more than a dusting of snow here and below.

I am an amateur photographer, so I am putting this here. Posting it as a .pdf is a waste of the type's potential, but I can't post it as a .rtf.

02-03-19 Rainbow .jpgArizona sunsets

Early morning rainbow that didn't last long. Would you believe it hasn't been edited? It's been resized to 99% twice to get it to this file size, but that's all.

If you're using IrfanView, you already have an easy way of controlling the file size, when the save dialog box comes up:

Does that method reduce the picture's resolution? The way I did it, it is still near-original. Is some detail lost when it went from 29.3 MB to 1.89 MB?
