That's one for the books. Really emphasizes distance and proportion and clarity is remarkable. One of my favorites.

Thank you very much jth523, Karen, Randall, Wanda, Ingrid, & Max for your great comments. Much appreciated.

Max, Sorry this does not show my exif file account of the cropping & saving then some touchups on the brightness & Contrast etc and re saving again, and sometimes that wipes out the Exif file. But my camera settings on this one, from my original image were:
f/8, Shutter Speed 1/160, ISO 200, Focal Length 300. (that's my 300 mm lens)

Most times for a bright moon shot at night, I use about an f/8, and a speed of 320, 400, or 500. Any thing close by like that will work fine in most cases. You want a fast speed, and a small lens opening for a bright moon.
Don't know what camera you use, but just experiment at different settings to see what works for you.
Hope this helps you.

I usually never use slower than 250, & that is rare most times it's at least 320. That's why I probably had to adjust the brightness a couple times & saved again. If I'd had only 1 save, the Exif would be there most likely.
