    I just got this handheld shot as I got out of my car at home. Had to shoot between powerlines but I thought the colors were interesting. I used the dodge tool to lighten the surrounding sky and trees. It looks fine on my monitor but I noticed by increasing monitor brightness there was a lot of noise in the lightened areas.

    Hmmm, the upload seems even darker, oh well.

    Yes, there's noise, but in this case I don't think it detracts, since it's strongest at the edge of the moon and tapers off as you get farther away.

    Neat shot!

    One thing to keep in mind when shooting the moon is that to get detail in the moon you need to essentially expose for daylight conditions, think bright sunlight. The large area of dark sky surrounding the moon will fool auto exposure and meters into several stops overexposure. Part of the noise may be due to the extreme overexposure of the lunar disk.

    I like the color of the moon here, too. Would love to have seen this image if you'd had your tripod handy. :wink: Good composition, nevertheless. Good effort!
