How would you shoot this photo using the DX6490? I used an external flash and am having trouble getting the moon and the Palm Trees in focus together.I used the landscape mode which is supposed to keep the whole scene in focus.

The moon is too far or the palms are too close! Unless you use wide angle and a small f stop you will never get both in focus and then the moon will look like a pin point (not even a pin head!

Your options:

1) Give up the idea.

2) take a good pictures of the palms with a nice size gap for the moon which will come from a secon image. You can use the focus brackets as a point for shoot ing the moon and positioning the space in the palms ehr the moon will go later.

3) Give NASA a call for help.

That's it Jim- your palms are too close. Have you tried shooting it from somewhere else? Just a thought.

Your moon looks good though. Go to manual mode and play with it some that way, but have your focus set on Landscape.
