I took this shoot a couple nights ago. My wife came home from work and thought the moon looked pretty and thought I should take a couple photos of it. Even though I knew neither my 18-55 kit lens nor the local landscape/scene in front of my house would provide a very compelling shot, I figured it would still be good practice. I was surprised at the results and was baffled that the moon looked more like the sun in my shots. I used a tripod and tried a variety of exposures, but the moon was very similar in all of them. Why did it turn out this way? What should I have done differently? P.S. Sorry about the thread title.
