Full Moon Delight

By water
Awesome awakening as I opened my eyes, the view of the full moon from my bed in Cape Town.

Its a nice scene Debbie, but Im sure it lacks the impact that you experienced when you saw it live.

For me, it looks like your camera attempted to compensate for low light, and ended up with quite a low contrast image, which makes the image appear a little flat.

From the point of view of composition, its also best to place the horizon a third the way from the bottom or top of the frame, - its will look better.

I have attempted a mod, however the shot was quite noisy, likely due to high ISO, so I also applied some noise reduction which may have softened the image slightly.

Next time you might try locking the ISO at its lowest, - 50 I believe, and use a tripod, - you may get a better result.

Perhaps this might look more like what youe eyes saw hopefully. You might notice Ive cropped it from the right, and moved the Moon in a little more from the edge.

Hope you find this helpful,

I think you suffer from the limits of equipment in shots like this. Rush out and buy a DSLR and a massive lens right away.

The moon is very small in the frame, and though the colours are peaceful, there is no real subject as a result. A pleasant pic but a bit bland, I'm afraid. Though score marks for a level horizon!!

Very small part of the image for a mod, so it's very noisy, but I wondered if less would be more, so to speak.
