295. Mr Armstrong's Footprint and the Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Cloud
If you look very closely at the picture you can see where Neil Armstrong stood. No really, you can (it's marked if you hover the curser over it). You can't see any footprints or anything, but you can see the sea. The Sea of Tranquility.
Anyway, what I was trying to do was capture a picture of the moon with the quite striking cloud that was all around it (or to be more precise all around us). My experiment was a total and abject failure. If I had sufficient exposure to see the clouds, the moon was far too bright and blurry. If the exposure on the moon was correct, the clouds could not be seen. I expect I could have done it using HDR or some Gimp trick with multiple exposures, but I just wanted to do it without too much post processing. The nearest I got was by under exposing the shot and then lightening it afterwards, but this made the clouds look awful.
So here is my picture as I settled for it. The clouds are there, but you'll have to take my word for it.
PS - Great these all black photos, they upload in seconds!
