Great Dpbours 2008-01-03 2:00

Hi JB,

Wow, I have been looking at this one for quite a while. And still I'm wondering if this was really the moon in that location ;-). At first I could not believe the intensity of the moon without a halo around it, combined with the visibility of the tree silouette. Still not sure about this one... The tree at 1/640 should be pitch black... The settings just don't make sense for the clarity here! Or is it a day shot that you post processed into a night shot? Just wondering about the settings and the result. I like it! Just no idea how you got to it ;-).

Yes, 2007 was a year as you describe it there. Good thing is that for 2008 it can only get better! ;-)

Greetings! Dennis

Default To Dpbours: Day or Night ? :o)


First of all, of course, I didn't paste the moon into the landscape.

In fact it is a day shot !
Sun was rising in my back when I took the picture (in the morning), so this morning sun (and a little bit of "additional light" in Camera Raw :o)) explains the tree clarity.
I exposed the picture in Center Weighted, locked the metering on the moon.
True that my PP makes a nighty atmosphere, and this dark mood prevents from overxposure of the moon.

Thanks a lot for visiting,
