This experiment was taken just as the moon appeared on the horizon, late in the evening just before the sun set.

This is 5 different timed exposures all at the same f/stop. It shows a neat cylindrical effect of the moon…It was kind of hard to stop my camera from shaking at this extended distance of 300mm. I thought the effects were quite interesting…What do you think?

    A fascinating experiment Larry and the rings add a sense of movement to the moon, like it is hurtling through space like a meteor! How much time did you give between shots? Great piece of work indeed. Peter

  • I appreciate your comments Peter, the images were all taken in RAW at 100 ISO, all @ the same constant F/stop, and then I took 5 exposures 2,1,0, -1,-2 all on manual, then I imported all five images into my photomatix Pro program (costs about $90.00) American…then it was slightly tweaked using Photoshop…If you would like more details I can send that to you in a bubblemail …Just let me know Ok…Larry
