    You have very steady hands.
    Nice shot. What did you use for a lens?

    I like this shot - My first guess is it's obviously the moon.
    But then I pull and say whoa this is tegan's shot, it could be anything

    Is it the moon? and if so, just curious, how come the outside edge looks jagged almost 'aliased'? Don't moon shots usually have somewhat softer edges. (That's not a critique - rather curiosity)

    Either way i like it!

    Gee, you have learned to be skeptical.

    Yes, it is the moon and to answer your question, the edge between the light and dark area of the moon produces cross lighting as seen from earth, emphasizing surface texture: the craters and ridges. (I was interested in astronomy when I was a kid. )

    Double checked Marko. I also had a hard light adjustment on too hard which resulted in no smoothing and some aliasing as well.

    Details, details. Thanks for noticing.

    I used my 75-300 canon to capture the full moon when I last seen one, past spring. Since summer came so hasn't the fog. But, it came out fuzzy, I was hand holding it to. I will have to remember the settings that you used and try it again when the fog clears or when winter comes, whichever comes first. I'm going to use my tripod to

    I have been lucky enough to have missed the fog during my shooting in Cape Breton and New Brunswick this summer, even though I spent most of my time in coastal areas.

    The fog seems to be hanging around south west Nova Scotia.
    We manufacture it
