    Sorry, looks over-sharpened and -contrast for my tastes. The full moon lacks contrast as-is, so to me, trying to make the maria black and the highlands white is like saturating a landscape shot to make it look like cartoon colors. Some may like it, but not I.

    quite good, but also for me it's too sharp and the contrast is too heavy. i think that your post work could be less invasive.

    Yesterday's moon was actually not a full moon. Tonight's moon is the full moon.

    I actually think shots like these are better with a tight square crop, and the moon dead center.

    Cool shot, though. I'm going to have to try this tonight with my 180mm.

    tried the square crop, but i like the sense of space that the wide crop gives. it's more a "look! the moon is a big ball... in space!" shot than a "oh look the moon is pretty" shot.
