Yin and Yang by Thomas-Koidhis Yin and Yang by Thomas-Koidhis
A blend of two exposures to keep detail in the moon.

(Name change + Sharpen...If anyone wants a bit of NR done around the clouds for the purpose of beautifying their desktop, I will get er into the shop. Or, you have my permission to do the NR yourself if you have the software... :))

Yeah, it is really nice if I do say so myself! That's why I have it up as a wallpaper - meant to be enjoyed in a bigger size.

What camera/lens combo did you use?

Normally I have EXIF but I have been saving in PNG lately which strips it :(

It was on my 5D MKII and the lens was dat EF 400mm 5.6L with (I think) a Kenko 2x TC. The clouds were fast moving and lower (you can see the motion blur) and with any moon blend there's a trick I use to quickly switch the exposures - expose manually for the cloud, then turn the mode dial to Aperture Priority (which is pre-set with an exposure set fast enough to get the sharp moon) which is set to be exposed for the moon and take the second photo. Otherwise, you tend to get too much difference or movements in the elements of the photo to still call it a photo of "what was there." A neat little trick! I used it to get this photo as well as some others:
