  • yeah i know , you guys out there hate these water marks but some people use flickr as a stock photo and this helps stop it ........ slightly!! I would rather that they didnt have to be here also but its the people out there that steal images that spoil it for all of us !

    Hi, your moon seems to have very nice details. I guess you have a good camera. I think this is too much underexposed, maybe should you use a lower speed to get more light, or have a higher ISO level (ouch you hide your EXIF data).

    The framing looks great, the details too (once again). I saw some moon pictures colorized, they're very great too. It could maybe be one of your next challenge ;-)

    See u!

    Yours seemed to be closer to the earth than mine I took yesterday. Really a great capture with awesome details!

    A good capture of the moon! Always love the details of its surface!
    But I tend to agree with Lionel: a better exposure and light would have brought the shot from good to great!

    All it needs is Jules Verne's rocket! The detal is amazing, especially when viewed large which I encourage everyone to do.

    Beautiful details on the moon. My first thought is also the same as the comments above, up the exposure a bit, just a tiny bit to brighten the moon it'll look really, really good!

    Excellent job!

    Overall I like this photo, but it is somewhat grainy. Since you are using a tripod, I would suggest lowering the ISO and using a longer (slower) shutter speed. Good detail and composition though.

    Its grainy because the image is cropped and resized and lost a bit of quality while doing so .
    Cant see the moon at all tonight or i would have had a few more goes at shooting it , will just have to wait till i get the convertor that i fancy ;-)

  14. --Luis-- 107 months ago | reply

    Or you have cropped a lot or it was very big that night, anyway it's amazing!

  15. babka_babka 107 months ago | reply

    Lumif ** its not cropped a lot but i did crop it .
    the moon has been close here for about a week and this was my 1st try with the sigma 300mm at night :)
    i missed the clearest night because my young son was awake late and sadly when i had the chance it was cloudy .
    I have been challenged to do better than this shot so when i get the chance i will !!!
