I do like the one with the plane a lot! Have you felt tempted to PP the moon closer to the plane to get a tighter crop?

Actually I never thought of that. It was a lucky shot to be as close as it was. :)

Its a wonderful shot and might not be particularaly enhanced by getting the moon closer, but that mice blue background could make moving it closer relatively easy..

I may give it a try, but many have assumed that I digitally created the shot when they first see it. I've always been a little bit proud of the fact that it isn't a photoshop creation.

Speaking of creations...

I'd never knock the honest approach :-)

Shot this evening with A100 and old grey Sigma 400mm F5.6. 1/500 F8 iso 200. This is a 100% crop with possibly a bit too much USM applied. The levels were not touched - I thought the spot metering was pretty good.

This is during a full lunar eclipse last month. It's not terribly sharp, as the long exposure introduced movement of the moon.

sigma 18-200mm @ 200/6.3 ISO-400 for 6 seconds. no corrections.

My very first effort at shooting the moon.

Alpha 100, Sigma 70-200 f2.8, x2 teleconverter on tripod. No photoshop tweaking other than to reduce in size and resolution.

I am sure I can improve, but I was pleased with this.

Hehe... we were shooting the same moon last night :) But I don't have a TC so I cropped a lot:

A100, Min100-300APO@F8, 1/500s, ISO200



I hope you don't mind me dropping in :)
