I just wanted to try to get that full moon tonight. I went on my balcony with the tripod. After few tries, I understood the tripod was useless since the speed required for such a shot was quite high.
I'm leaving for a long week-end. I hope I will have more interesting things to post quite soon :)

Pas mal Steven !
Très bon rendu en noir et blanc.
La netteté est correcte; il est même possible de la mixer avec des paysages.
Je vous souhaite bon voyage.

I like several things in this photograph:
1- the total and pure blackness which wraps the moon.
2- the relief of the moon is completely incredible. It seems to be in 3 dimensions!

pretty huge moon for 200mm lens, Steven!
Was it high in the sky when you shot it?

Very nice, Steven. You have captured a lot of interesting texture here, and I particularly like the "bottom" of the moon here, as it has a rough appearance against the black sky. Well done, keep it up,

Hi Steven, Good shot. And thanks for the shutter speed remarks. I tried it as well and yes: a tripod is no good.

yes it was full moon yesterday, and you manage to capture it beautifully.

ça fait du bien d'être dans la lune de temps en temps.
je trouve que le résultat est très bon et cette lune est pleine de détails.

Great detail. Moon looks closer than ever :) how long was the exposure ? Great job.

wow.. I'm just wondering.. your camera must be very good to take this one.. I have tried to take pictures of the moon but that are so far from being as good as this one :)
