This is what happens when I'm not familiar with the camera and the clouds aren't cooperating. It might have helped if I used a tripod, but hey, I'm lazy (I think I've said this before).
I pulled out the manual for the camera and figured out a way to manually expose the shot (like I did when I used to use a simple SLR with film). This was too dark, but now I was getting somewhere. Too bad the clouds were non-existent (dang!).
I thought this shot turned out pretty good.
I do not know why one shot caused a sepia-toned moon and this one more grey. Still, isn't the detail cool?
The next night the clouds appeared. Yay! Unfortunately, I had to figure out how to use the camera all over again! Argh!
Went for a wider view, but I got that stupid reflection too close to the subject.
I think this one might be a winner.
Or does this one look better?
