    In Escondido, CA we had heavy fog at 4:32am (best time to shoot), so at 10:30pm I took this shot. The fog was rolling in and you can see the water drops from the clouds surrounding the image of the moon. I was dissappointed that the weather conditions didn't allow a better shot. :redface:[​IMG]

    Hi Dave,


    Would you like to share some camera settings and lens that you used for this shot?

    E-M5, Panny 100-300mm @269mm, 1/400 sec., f7.1, iso 200 -3.0EV, shot at 22:41:05 on 6-22-13, metering certer weighted ave., Manual exposure, auto white balance, Standard (Contrast, Saturation & Sharpness)

    I took an number of shots with different settings. This one seemed to be the sharpest. The 269mm focal length was not intentional, I thought I was shooting at 300mm!

    I was using the rear touch screen to take the shot to minimize vibration.

    Then I played with LR4.4 to bring out the detail.

    The fog was coming in as I took the shot, but the moon was very bright, so I was able to shoot thru the fog and still see the moon. I really wish the space behind the moon was black rather than filled with the water drops in the fog

    Thanks Dave,

    This will perhaps give me some idea how to go about a picture like this.

    I guess I can try something like this with my Canon FD 100-300mm
