The moon…enhanced

The moon on the early evening of March 11, 2017, with enhancement by Photoshop.

I thought the clouds coming in on Saturday night might block out the moon that has shone so brightly this week but the clouds were broken as the moon rose in the early evening and I was able to shoot it on the rise, so to speak.

This shot has a lot of enhancement in Photoshop.  I shot the moon closer with a 400 mm telephoto and enhanced its composition and inserted it where the moon was just a bright spot in the sky with a 200mm lens.

That makes the photo a layered illustration.

I’ve spent most of my photographic life shooting the moon in as many ways and have also done videos of it and its effect.  The one below is from 2013.
