Default Moon over the Bayou II

I posted a long exposure a few moons ago (ahem.) of the moon over the trees overlooking the bayou adjacent to my property. After some good suggestions I went for a second go at it.


This was the end result:


Anyone have any tips, techniques, or suggestions to make it a better photo?

Anything would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Your moon looks like it is eclipsing the sun. The face isnt bright enough to match the corona. If you notice the corona is always less bright than the face.

gotcha, I'll tweak it a bit in photoshop. I think I could darken the corona and brighten the moon...meet in the middle

Its better but you should lighten the darker areas of the moon. Just a ghost of an indication they are there.
