The Love of The Moon by BrightStar2 The Love of The Moon by BrightStar2
Yay My first nightime MOON shot :wow:

:iconmoonplz::heart:

All that spirits desire, spirits attain
~Khalil Gibran~

Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
When your heart is shooting stars
You're holding heaven in your arms
Have you ever been in love?

I Waited till it was over my house still pretty small but on full zoom and a low ISO It paid off
I took about 13 shots and 10 were clear shots which are all here in stash...I just didn't know which one
to post but this one is more in frame and has the clearest graters which I so love, Details...amazing....sta.sh/21xio2xi9qan

:icondbthx4::icondbthx5::icondbthx6: In advance and thank you to everyone that gave me encouragement to keep trying...
because if you give up trying you never know how far you can go, even to the MOON and back.......:blowkiss:

features - thank you very much :blowkiss:
SCENT OF AUTUMN... AND MORE THERE IS A SPECIAL SCENT IN THE AIR.... THE DAYS ARE SHORTER...

I did the day and night almost full moon shots was pretty easy
once it was over head, but now I am having problems capturing
the cresent or waning moon its seems to not get close enough
or to bright, so I have to figure that out now.....:D Thank you :rose:

I WOULD SAY THAT IT IS TOO BRIGHT, IVE TRIED IT WITH MINE, ALTHOUGH THE ZOOM IS GOOD FOR NOTHING;) BUT IT JUST TURNS INTO A BLUR ON A CESENT MOON DUE TO HOW BRIGHT IT IS.

WERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S A WAY THOUGH :)

AND YOUR WELCOME ;)

no most were bad :giggle: very
not really...I should try again

Thing is the moon you got to think of with a DSLR as a day shot cause its actually is very bright (full moon)
so I got to get the settings right
some turned out ok thought :)
:hug:

:iconbrightstar2:
BrightStar2 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012
Yes the setting were the key and having the wide angle zoom
I set the ISO at 200 even lower in the day
and the rest auto focus and full zoom...keep trying you will get there

That always seems to be the case. I have missed several shots because of weather and unfortunate timing. However, other times I do get lucky with some shots :)
