The Moon



I took these shots in pitch black and through the trees. It's pretty cool how the tree branches came out across the lit full moon. I wish I had a better lense though, so I could have zoomed in even closer.

Cool! I'm a big fan of the moon. These are great.

Do you have photoshop? You could do wonders with these photos.

Keep snapping!!

Thanks everyone! Willy, I don't have photoshop. I just use my eye & Picasa3.

An unusual type of shot, indeed end up very good. The tree branches across gave the image different approach in a photographic sense.

These are great photos. I always overexpose the moon when I try to shoot it...

Thank Adrian, thanks Greg! I was just playing around, but it's fun when your play turns out to be half way decent. I appreciate your comments.

Those are great! I've tried to do that with my little digital and all I get is a tiny white dot. Those are really cool!
