I wanted to see if I could get a decent picture of the moon. Taken with kit lens.

Moon shots are usually overexposed. Try some pp to bring up the contrast and lower the brightness.

Most everyone with a camera has shot the moon at one time or another. 90% of those shots are probably fit for a landfill somewhere. The others were exceptional for one reason or another. Presentation would catch my eye. For example shoot the moon each day it comes out. Put them all together about an hour apart in distance and show us the moon's life cycle in a single shot. Sorry, but another clear shot of the moon is pretty boring after you have seen a few hundred of them.
