Techniquely not a travel photo but I would like to go there someday, do you?
Taken with 2 x 2x doublers @200mm with the 10D giving an effective 1280mm. The shutter speed is actually 1/160s but it is not listed as part of the list on TE so I have to select 1/125s. The shot was done with mirror lockup and was triggered from a laptop to prevent camera's shake (it was quite a heavy rig :)) and at that focal length, any minor vibration would induce blurring.

VERY COOL! What else can I say? Well, maybe: Fly me to the moon...

Great shot and sharp with no blooming!!
Shutter speed, tripod??
davlee (143) 2003-06-19 10:32
Heh! It's clear and detailed - technically it's impressive - but the title and premise in the notes really make it for me. "Places" indeed!

At the other side of the globe I tried to do the same. It seems that the moon shines more on Canada or is it the talent????

Man, what a shot. Great job.

Wow, this is what it's all about it. What an original concept and how well executed! We all see it everyday, yet the way you captured and presented it makes it special.
bmckenzie (517) 2003-06-19 11:36
I like how you off-centred it in the frame, still using the rule of thirds (the moon is a third down from the top, 2 thirds in from the left). How come there are no stars? Would they show up if you took a longer exposure (e.g. several seconds cf. 1/160th). I've never tried capturing the moon - didn't realise you could do it with such a brief exposure.
evilren (1395) 2003-06-19 11:51
wow! the texture of the moon in this shot is great! well done for that!
AdrianW (2274) 2003-06-19 12:27
Excellent shot! You've managed to capture the moon extremely well - your exposure is spot on, and I like the composition as well! As a matter of interest did you convert it to B&W?
Porteplume (3379) 2003-06-19 13:18
You've made an extraordinary shot!
And everybody has said what must be said before me... ;-)

perfect!!! thank you.
ornis (1271) 2003-06-19 17:33
Fascinating and beautiful. Thank you for sharing it and for your useful notes. What about the dark side now! ;-)).
amanda (226) 2003-06-19 21:11
Great shot - the detail is amazing. I also like they way you composed the shot.
I have only tried to photograph the moon a couple of times, and either ended up with slight shake, or slight blur, and it is always too far away.
CedarBough (74) 2003-06-19 21:28
Nice shot! good framing, lovely subject. Background is very plain, though (please notice the tongue in my cheek).
Luko (13978) 2003-06-20 17:57
Yes, Cedar, you're right ! I would add that for me it also lacks monks and ao dais.
Though technically, I'd say that your fill in flash really worked great...
Thien, what can we say on this? please next time upload pics on which our critics can be useful!
dominique (11414) 2003-06-21 15:24
impressive photograph is very interesting, it is a perfect blow, super framing.

Beatiful. I wish I had a telescope too :)
dovi (1068) 2003-06-30 13:56
Wow, nothing to add to what others hadn't had to critique, just wanted to add my smily as a token of appreciation/admiration!
tikko (73) 2003-07-06 11:31
Nothing to add ;o)
lemon_logix (1054) 2003-07-10 12:08
It's almost unreal..My dream shot. I would love to be able to do that someday.
Teten (582) 2003-07-16 11:55
The day i will manage to shot so the moon i will be happy! really amazing. Congratulations. Lovely shot
Bayleaf (1478) 2003-07-30 0:45
I can't add anything to this except my congratulations on a brilliant shot!
Didi (51263) 2003-08-10 16:42
Very good picture.
Excellent clearness; I will wish another photograph of the moon in phase "croissant" to appreciate the texture of the craters.
nainconnu (351) 2003-09-17 16:23
WOW, amazingly detailed and well exposed. Thanks a lot for the technical tips. I never got good shots of the moon yet. I'll try your settings. Thanks again!
bullybeef53 (3361) 2003-10-17 19:29
Amazing picture ! Congratulations .
IaKoop (819) 2003-11-06 19:26
Just another smiley. Awesome shot (as if you didn't know that by now) and thanks for the tips.
goerhal (781) 2003-11-25 11:59
At first I thought this shot could be cropped at the left but then I realized that perhaps all the black really should be there, showing the dark, cold space. Well done!
Kenny10pin (19301) 2003-11-25 12:19
Very good clear picture you have here,
I have also had a few attempts but to no avail

bigric (2873) 2004-04-15 1:02
That camera shake gets you on all moon shots.I have the cannon 300 and it looks like I will have to buy the remote control. Well Done!
jb06 (150) 2005-11-08 20:32
Great Composition! You should try and sell this Photograph, I am sure you would make a lot of money. It's such an amazing photo. Keep up the Good Work!
