Spent the week in Baxter State Park in Maine, had the good fortune of some of the nicest weather and clearest skies I have ever seen...played around with the a6000 and Sony 20-18 and the 50 1.8 for some night shots/Milky Way... I will probably post a separate thread when I finish downloading, but here are 2 pix to constructively criticize...

The sky condition looks fantastic. Too much light pollution in my region to ever get a Milky Way image. :(
Appears to be out of focus. Having tried to shoot astro pics with my a6000 and native AF lenses, I know it isn't easy. Next opportunity, set the camera to MF to fine tune the focusing.
Pick a bright star, magnify view with focus peaking set to minimum. Focus until you achieve a fine 'dot'. Enable 2 sec. shutter delay to minimize vibration.

Note, be sure to calculate the max length of time per focal length for APS-C, not full-frame. The 50mm f/1.8 went way over at 25 sec.
Also, there is no need to go past ISO 1300. It's just a lot of noise beyond it.
Tip: Enable Long Exposure Noise Compensation to eliminate hot pixels. If you shoot a series of shots 20-30 sec. long, you will be dealing with a lot of hot pixels. Some raw editors manage to remove them in post automatically, but not guaranteed. It's an annoying delay to use it, but will save you from pulling your hair out later. :)

Spotted a Juvenile Cormorant in our little lake today:

Look, Mom, I caught a fish!

A (blue I think) heron randomly stopped by while I was visiting a park with my wife. I only had the Voigtlander 40mm/f1.2 with me on an A7Riii. I tried to get closer, but not surprisingly it got spooked and flew a couple of hundred yards up the back channel, at which point it was too far away for any further photos. Still, I thought this was an interesting capture. It was a little tricky getting rid of some foreground reeds and cattails that got in the way using Capture One.

Croton Gorge Park, NY. In spring this would have a lot more water flowing, but it's just a trickle in the summer.

This is on the other side of the wall. It needed about a foot higher of water to overflow to the reservoir on the left.

Morrey, the new resident Cormorant at the lake, who seems to be settling in for a long stay.....and a companion joined him on the log, while keeping a socially-safe distance:
