Yesterday I finished work a little earlier than usual so I tried my luck taking some more photos of the moon. Yesterday was also the birthday of my ‘someone special’. To respect his privacy, I can’t reveal who it is but I’m almost certain that he’ll read this. I dedicate this photo to him.
After taking about 50 photos and trying different compositions, some with the tree that can be seen in this image and some without, I selected this one, cropped it, and downsized and sharpened it. No other alterations were made.

Me encanta. Está muy bien el momento en que has conseguido captar la luna con la luz del día.
Un saludo, Oscar

nice one! not the easiest subject in the world to photograph well. The kiwi sky luckily is not polluted, so makes crisp images possible, but still not without much effort.....
well done and tfs!! rgds arnoud

You deserve the compliments. This daytime moon shot is very good use of the opportunity. It is clear and very visible against the blue of the sky. It resembled me the shot of earth from space.
