ylw-text.gif Gibbous Moon Even a Gibbous Moon can produce a great deal of light at 8300 feet. It's hard to expose it correctly against the darker backdrop of the ground and dark-wooded buildings. For this particular image, I used two filters: a 2-stop and a 3-stop graduated ND (neutral denisty) filter, and stacked them together to create a 5-stop grad ND to keep the moon from blasting through, and to keep the sky dark enough to balance with the ground. The result is clear: a nicely exposed image (5 seconds at f5.6) that properly shows the scene "as it looked."
