Midwestern Full Moon
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Full moon I shot tonight with my new lens. I took the tripod out to my yard and experimented with apertures and shutter speeds. Before shooting, I researched what most settings most experienced photographers capture at. While most are in the f/11 range, I found it to be too bright and to "haloish". This was taken at f/32, with a shutter speed of 1/20. I later cropped the image and added the blue frame, with a small amount of sharpening. |
This is my first time really experimenting lunar photography, so I am definitely open to any critique.

Very nice image with good detail. Moon shots can be difficult because it is so easy to overexpose and just get a blury white disc. You got fairly nice clarity and sharpness with your IS lens, and a tripod will give that extra bit of stability for a perfectly sharp image.
Anyway very nicely done especially through the ever present "Region Haze."
Considering the lens used, not bad. I would like to barrow a friends 500mm minimum to get as close as I can. Better res to work with. Have a nice day.
You've got your exposure pretty right for this one. Good clear moon image although the blue band around the frame has me a little mystified, and I would recommend researching a little more on composition: good subject placement can make a good photo great!

The moon is taken pretty good. It feels like an image of a powerful telescope. Lunar luminosity is looking lovely. A beautiful shot my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.
