The moon

I had a go at photographing the moon. It’s 1am, my neighbours have gone to bed, and I stood in my car park with my tripod, and tried many different shutter speeds with a low ISO setting to get as much of a clear picture of the moon as I could, and I am happy with the results!

The original photo – ISO-100, 1/400 sec. shutter, f/5.56

It looks nice and silky like this, and at the right balance of light to get detail from it. However, like I said, closer up, you can see the detail of the craters:
