Obsessed with the Moon

Here is another shot of the moon that I took with the Nikon D300 and Nikon 300mm f/4D AF-S lens:

Full Moon

The photo was taken on Jan 20, 2008. Tripod, mirror lock-up, 1/40s, f/14, ISO 200.
Post-processing and sharpening applied to both using Photoshop CS3.

    It looks for all the world like an (admittedly blotchy) rock melon. Fascinated by that circular focal point.

      Marlene, thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment! Have you tried photographing the moon before?

        Hi Nazim, I did take some pictures of Moon last night @ Chicago. Would you mind looking at the picture and offer your valuable comment?

        Btw, I have followed the tips on this blog for Moon Photography :-)

    No. I’m more into appreciating it than doing it. But I passed your link along on Twitter :)
