Winter Moon by Shikaz Winter Moon by Shikaz
Motivation :
i was really impressed by the scenery of the moon being surrounded by the clouds as it was lighting the whole world around me.
i was in the middle of the sea having a boat journey hmmm was a real lovely night.

Tools :
* Tokina 300mm
* Olympus E-500

Procedures :
For this result I used bracketing technique

Exposure bracketing means that you take two more pictures: one slightly under-exposed (usually by dialing in a negative exposure compensation, say -1/3EV), and the second one slightly over-exposed (usually by dialing in a positive exposure compensation, say +1/3EV), again according to your camera's light meter.
So simply I did 3 pictures to get the clouds and the sharp picture of the moon

At the end would like to say that I am sure that this is not considered as one of the best moon pictures but I just wanted to show you what I achieved as am not going to invest more money to shoot astrologic pictures anymore.
Regards everyone and thanks for the support.

full View is highly Appreciated
