    Nice shot, image is really sharp and clear. I'm also fairly new to photography but I think that's a pretty good photo, only thing you need to do is wait for a more clear night and maybe find an area with less light pollution.

    Also what was your ISO and exposure time?

    how about this for a clearer night but it comes with a cost. I went for that cause I wanted a foreground too.

    Yeah, the foreground does make the photo look better but damn that's a clear night, nice photo.

    Get your gear together, at July 27th. there will be something special.



    „The timing if this total lunar eclipse means it won't be visible from North America, though much of the Eastern Hemisphere of Earth will see part or all of the eclipse. The entire eclipse will be visible from Africa, the Middle East and countries in central Asia. The eclipse will be visible from eastern South America as it is ending, and from Australia as it is beginning.“

    me too...!

    totally missed the bloody moon... 8€
    was prepared to shoot @ F8..
    forgot to change the ISO to auto and exposure less than 1 second...
    cause of the clouds the cam was not able to focus, not even MF worked...

    this was the first shot focus was there...
    @ ISO 100 and auto exposure 4 sec....
    no wonder it's blurry... 8(

    Lumix DMC-TZ61 @720mm


    oh well hope we'll see some clear sky shots here...

    When you're going out with a 51 year old woman, you'll see this as a good thing.
