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... )
Sent da note but I looked at it and my first bit of text kind of blobbed together (I draft longer stuff like that in word or onenote loll) and I guess sending text like that through the tiny note box isn't something it enjoys too much...Oh well...I'm sure you'll manage. Sorry! haha ^^
Awesome! That's funny, it's actually my background at the moment too. Enjoy
By the way, I will respond to our longer comment thread by note if you don't mind, cause I can see quite the dialogue starting haha. And that way I can send some stuff I'm working on. I'm gonna read it more in depth and respond how I'd like to a bit later. It's really nice hearing your thoughts and advice...So awesome. THANK YOU!
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:
