Super Moon 2012

The 2012 Super Moon was a tough shoot here in Chicago. The moonrise was hidden by clouds. At 8:35 CST we got a 1 or 2 minute look at it. Even then it was dodging in and out of cloud cover.


Single file HDR processed as 7 exposures in DXO Optics, processed in Photomatix and contrast and curves added in NIK Photo Efex.


Not a lot different than the non-HDR version I posted the other day, but was able to bring up the exposure somewhat, which I think gives better over all tonality.
