Composed with two pictures, one with long exposure and one underexposed to catch moon details.

Very nice moon shot. I can appreciate the difficulty of this photo, having tried moon shots before. Nice silhouette, too! :-)

Very nice shots and overlay, iacopo.

But, I am curious... wasn't your exposure for the trees and clouds long enough to make the moon "bloom". Wouldn't the overexposed moon in that shot cause you to have to enlarge the correctly exposed moon during overlaying so that it covered the underlying overexposed area?

hi geoff, exactely as you said. The underexposed one is a little more zoomed just to cover the overexposed halo!
I then adjusted brightness of the underexposed one to make it fit the whole picture.
Here are the originals.

Thanks for verifying what I thought to be true, iacopo. You see, I did exactly the same thing as you did a few months ago. My longer exposure had much more overexposure of the moon than yours because there were more clouds around the moon and the light reflected off of them.

In any case, you did a good job. If you want to see what I did you can go here:
