Nice shot I like it, been trying to get a moon shot but always seem to forget when there's a full moon or it's been cloudy.

Also I assume you used a tripod ?????

A little overexposed. Try to use smaller aperture and less time (1/125 or even 250 should be ok for the full moon) as the moon gets brighter and always use a tripod. Also, the plain moon has been repeated any number of times here and elsewhere. So, try some variety - shoot it with clouds, against a backdrop or with something else - nearby stars if possible, or, I remember seeing a photo with an aeroplane crossing the moon - such shots would pose enough challenge to you and also add interest to the viewer. Full moon is two days ahead. Best of luck!

Emmanuel, know how hard it is to get good moon pics. I reckon you are well on your way. A bit of EZ there I see and then a bit more cropping in PP. You have a touch of green along the top of the moon, don't know if your PP software has a chromatic aberration adjustment, if it does it should get rid of it quite easily. Good job.

Pants, thanks for viewing and commenting. Last night was a clear night and took advantage, couldn't wait for full moon. I used a tripod for the shots.

Raghu, thanks for viewing and commenting. Beggars can not be choosers, Its winter up here, and most of the days/nights its cloudy, very few opportunities for clear skys, I captured what I could, as far as plain moon picturesposted before, I'm sorry for boring you and fellow forum friends.

Rafael, Thanks for viewing and commenting. I always havea miserable time gettingpictures of the moon. I saw the green tinge on the top of the moon but I was not aware that the software is able to remove that, I'm new to PP.
