Well done Jubi, on two counts: one, for starting this new thread as a continuation and two, nice pictures to start!

I took a long shot last evening. This evening I was lazy.

Gorgeous moon shots all. I saw it last night on my way home. Should have stopped and taken a shot. Maybe tonight for an almost full moon.

Yesterday morning I caught the setting moon on my way to work. The orange tint may have been a reflection of the sunrise.

This is the best I could get on March 15, about 6:30 p.m. That noise is really haze, the ISO was only 400. It's only been hazy or overcast in the evenings lately.

Some moon shots from the April full moon while we were camping off the Halifax river at Tomoka park in Ormond Beach

The first photo had my headlights on the road, I turned them off and took another shot, but liked the one with the headlights better. ☺
The Halifax river and the multitude of condos along the beach front, the last two with a palm tree silhouette.

Hello all,

I came across this thread and thought I'd post a couple of mine. I am not sure if it is Aristarchus Crater or not, known for it's blue tint, but the one approximately in the 9 o'clock position seems blue to me. Enjoy.

Dinu, You got it! I like how it looks with the natural black vignette all around the moon. Very cool! Thanks for posting all of the images. That will give me some ideas for next time I photograph the full moon.

Here are a couple more. I overexposed the moon, but I still like them okay. We had clouds too. It was going in and out of the clouds.

Oh Patti your moon shots are just fantastic. I especially like the first one you posted with the lily pads on the water.
We were on Sanibel Island camping during the supermoon and I looked so forward to getting some moon shots...but unfortunately we had thunderstorm almost every single night and the clouds remained long enough to block out the moon.

Dinu those are great photos of the moon. Thanks for sharing them.

I did get this shot with my point and shoot camera on 6-21, the first day of summer, down on the beach.

Hello everyone, this is my first time posting in this forum. I have recently taken an interest in photography and hope to learn more by watching what all of you are posting here.

I saw the title of this thread and it reminded me of a snapshot I took of a beautiful moon this past July while camping near Mt. Lassen in Northern California.

I think I just got lucky and took a pretty good photo, but any constructive comments would be welcome.

I took this with a Nikon Coolpix P510 that I had just purchased the day before and I was just messing around trying to learn how to use the camera.

Sunkissed, That moonscape beach image is wonderful! Too bad about the Sanibel Island weather. I'm sure they would have been some fantastic shots.

Jubilada, Good timing to catch that moon peeking out of the clouds. The clouds in the sky make for an interesting shot.

Dann_L, That is an awesome shot! You got a lot of detail. I don't think you need any pointers. The hardest thing to get right on moon shots is the exposure. Most shots are overexposed because the camera "sees" all of the dark surrounding the moon and tries to make it brighter which ends up overexposing the moon. The exposure is a bit easier when it is not really dark out, so twilight and dawn when the sky is still blue is a great time.

I got this shot Friday night at the high school football game - right before the sky completely clouded over and the rain started. I did overexpose the moon, but it was intentional in this case. This is more of a moonscape rather than an attempt to get a good shot of the moon itself. Besides, it was with my iPhone! LOL. That's all I had. I lowered the highlights, increased the contrast a little and did some noise reduction on the shot, but that's all.

One More Friday Night Light

Dann that is really nice, love the blue tint to the photo. I have to say my Cool-Pix has amazed me in the shots it has taken. My best moon shots have been with my Nikon Cool-pix.

Patti, that is something, my son catches wonderful shots with his I-phone. I just have an old fashioned flip phone and keep thinking I would like an I-phone, not for Internet usage, but for the camera always on hand...LOL.

Sunkissed, I resisted getting a smart phone for a long time but then we had to get them at work. I got addicted. I can't imagine how I could survive without mine. I find that I use more and more features all the time. I love that camera. It does panoramas, video and has built in HDR that you can turn off and on. Very cool and gets better all the time.

The feature I use most is the map. Whenever I'm out and about and need to find a WalMart or a Lowes or just a street, I type it into the map search and within seconds little pins drop all over the map to show me the closest whatever I'm looking for - it even works for "restaurant" or Italian restaurant" and countless other places I need to find. Then, the voice will "take" me there. That feature together with my Garmin Nuvi GPS and I hardly ever get lost anymore. :-)

Well Patti you are a good sales person. ☺ I do like having our GPS in the Jeep when we are traveling for finding stores and etc. With all the traveling we do I know we'll really love a smart phone,
