Day 352 - A starry-eyed moon
I'm pleased that I managed to find the right exposure levels to give some detail to the scene while still maintaining that night-time look.
Doesn't the moon look amazing? Like the sun, really. That's what I get for slowing the shutter down far enough to save the detail: the light from the almost-full moon becomes too powerful and creates the starry effect. I'm sure there are filters or other techniques to avoid this effect but I'm not interested. I quite like seeing the moon like this.
I forgot to mention yesterday that I am now in the final two weeks of this year-long photographic odyssey. I find that fact amazing as well. It seems like only yesterday that I posted my first picture and yet, at the same time, I feel like I've been doing this for ever.
