This shot was taken on my fifth and last night in Cambodia from a hill overlooking Angkor Wat.
I was hoping to get some good sunset shots this night, but the best thing to turn out was this shot of the moon.
I hope you like it,

Excelent contrast between the moon and the rest of the picture.
Really, really, lovely.

I bet it was Phnom Bakheng you were hoping to see the sunset from; we were similarly disappointed when we were there and all I managed was almost being trampled to death by an elephant; but that's another story.
This is fantastic use of the 300mm. The "spot" on the moon centre right helps to give the image a 3D appearance showing the moon as it is; a sphere. lovely midnight blue sky.

Great moon shot. It's impressive the amount of details that can be observed. Nice 3D effect. After all the moon is round. Good contrasts and colors.

High definition details,

Very impressive and very suggestive photo. I can imagine some would like to howl seeing such picturesque moon... ;). Regards

Fantastic shot of the moon (a very under-represented subject on TE). The detail in this shot is really incredible, and I like the off centre positioning in the frame. Great job!

Hi Dan - wow, gorgeous moon, the sharpness and detail on it is incredible, I'm speechless.
ALSOM (6616) 2005-11-21 13:38
I cannot add more to the previous comments.
Definitely an eye-catcher shot. Lovely moon with excellent details. The moon stands out from the deep blue sky.
misterB (2250) 2005-11-21 14:33
The best shot I've seen of the moon yet. Pefectly exposed and focused with a hint if cloud in the not too dark sky. Perfect positioning of the moon in the frame. It looks as if I'm going to have to dig out my mirror lens and have a shot at it myself (a 1400mm German built mirror which when stuck onto an 20D gives a focal length of 2250mm!).

Magnifique lune, je pense que tu as recadre car ua 300mm elle n'est pas si grande. Mais elle est vraiment superbe.
Very nice shot.
Clairedelune (4911) 2005-11-21 20:49
Oh! A photo for me! How can I not say a word about a picture of the moon? Especially when it is amazing like this one! The blue sky make it more beautiful. Good framing too. Bravo!
Claire... de lune!

Looks to me Dan like a very detailed capture of the moon. Very nicely done. Cheers Paul.

I think you can be happy about this one, the rendering of the moon is excellent to my eyes and the contrast opposing its luminosity to the deep sky is striking, I also like the clouds in the lower part that help to further enhance the subject.
Have a nice day,

Cette photo change des photos de lune en noir et blanc
Les couleurs sont belles et la composition est bonne
Good job Dan
Corny (1706) 2005-11-23 2:25
Nice Shot, great detail!
ishai (4097) 2005-11-23 4:23
Looks amazing, almost like a big yellow melon, Dan
The bluish shades of the skies are very good with the dark clouds.
I do miss some silhouettes of the place it self just to justify the title,
But by its self as it is its wonderful
ChrisJ (86862) 2005-11-26 3:52
A superb zoom shot of the moon, with incredible sharpness. I like the color opposition of faint red & dark blue. Good work!

I had seen photos from the blue hour before and I had also seen the photos of moon before.
but I had never seen the photo of the moon in the blue hour before ... and for that special reason .. i would like to thank you for sharing this nice photo
I do like it
cheers .... sarju

Hello Dan. Very good composition with the Moon in the corner of the photo. I like the light and the details of the Moon. It's a very interesting photo. Congratulations for your work.
david (3992) 2005-12-10 10:43
stunning dude ... just stunning.
the clouds at the bottom break up the picture very nicely and the detail of the moon is fantastic.
droonsta (423) 2006-02-14 6:38
OMG trully beautiful great contrast and great sharpness even if it was enhanced... the detail is spectacular
lucinka (9976) 2006-03-14 9:00
Dan, it is hardly possible to believe that you've got such a great detail of the moon with just 300mm lense. I have to try it as well :) Great detail and colors. Lucie

Very good composition and contrast.

Hi Dan, I like this moon shot, the sky color and the moon complements each other very well.
Bandit (2356) 2008-10-23 7:50
superbe image !! Bien détaillée !! J'aime beaucoup le petit voile de nuage qui fait varier la teinte bleu !! La lune est vraiment superbe !!

Hi Dan, Good golden globe of the moon. The details on the surface are very good indeed. The 3-D effect looks good. I have tried some shots of the moon but none are as good as this one. TFS. Murray.
