    when shooting the moon you have to under exposure the image compared to what the camera thinks it should be at. This is because the metering will try to brighten up the sky surrounding the moon so it isn't pitch black, little does it know that its supposed to be black! Great start though!

    When you want to make visible the dark side of the moon along with that sliver of light of the crescent, you will automatically blow out that crescent. OR you could take a photo of a well exposed crescent, with a black sky and all, and none of the dark side to be seen. I see you went for the "lets make that dark side visible"-variation, and that will lead to an overexposed part where there is the sunny side.
