While this, and the photos below are HDR (high dynamic range) compilations, no reframing, realigning or other shenanigans were undertaken to create this image. The moon is exactly in the correct spot exactly as it was shot.
I conduct an approximately monthly webinar that details how to find "the spot" to capture moonrises and sets like this one. You can join the Interest List here.
By the way, there was NO alteration of the moon and foreground size in this image. That is, this is the correct and actual size of the moon. No changing of focal length was done.
