Not bad. Here's a suggestion though. The moon is reflected sunlight. Amazingly enough you do not need high ISO, etc. ,etc. It's counter-intuitive but try it with daytime type settings.

The shot below, for instance, is ISO 80 @ 1/200 second.

Interesting shot though. I like the moody look you got. I have a similar shot or two in my collection.

Iggy's right though ... but looking at your exif data I see you used f10 for the aperture. With the moon it will make little difference if you use a high fstop or a low fstop so using a lower one and a higher shutter speed will help you get a sharper shot.

I like it too. Nice golden colour and lots of negative space, works for me.
