Just Another Moon
No need to brace yourself, moon are relativly easy to capture, being an object lite by the sun, you shoot like you would in daytime.....1/125 sec at f16, at 100 asa, you can even bracket to give you extra contrast..)) using a long lens like you did, I would go for 1/1000 of a second, at f5,6. 100asa to avoid camera mouvement. This seem your main problem in this shot.
As for esthetic, I'm not a great fan of that purple border, lively, maybe, but too bold and taking away from the actual picture. A sober "decoration" would be a better choice. Keep in mind that only one opinion...)))

An artistic presentation of this moon shot in such an attractive composition.
The purple frame suits perfectly! Quite a sharp image of the moon against a totally black BG.
Good exposure and a neat presentation.
My best regards,

Not a subject that I have ever considered photographing ... but why not!
What I like most about this is the good, minimalistic composition. The moon is there to make a strong statement. (Like, Denis, I would have preferred white around the border, so as not to detract. However, when I started on this site, borders were frequently the main bone of contention!! So, I understand different people have diffferent styles.)
My warm regards,

Bravo to you for chasing the moon. Nice artistic presentation. I like your idea of leaving space at the bottom with a pretty contrasting frame. Nice exposure. TFS Julie

I have tried quite a few moon pics but never seem to capture the moons patterns and shades which you have done exceptionally well, a nice neat and well composed image. I do however agree with the comment relating to the pink border, some what overpowering and not fitting.Overall an impressive image.

Hi, Lori. Nice moon shot set against a dark sky. The placement and framing. These shots could be challenging and it looks good. Cheers.
