Crescent Moon 17th June 2018 @ 10.46pm

Thought this made a pretty picture – moon between branches of the front trees (slightly cloudy as well giving plenty of ‘glow’!)

Taken with my spare works camera, a Nikon D7000 (16.2 Mp on a cropped sensor), with my glass on the front:

Nikon 1.4x teleconverter and Nikon 70-200mm VRII f/2.8

Settings:

ISO 160, 1/30 sec, f/4, Focal length 280mm (420mm in 35mm full frame terms), hand-held.

RAW file processed twice in Adobe Lightroom for the background and then the lunar features. Composited in Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.
