Greetings from the Critique Club

Wow. I am so pleased to have the opportunity to look at this fascinating image one more time. Of course it is beautiful and you were well rewarded by our voters for your efforts.

There's not much I can add to those comments you have already received, so I'll just say "thanks, again" and move on to the next person in line for a Critique.

Still, (as an avid SciFi reader) it was a pleasure to examine this image so -er - closely. I can almost find the Heinlein homesteads on the topo you have provided.

This is absolutely amazing! So clear just like from a textbook!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2005 10:44:23 PM
Sure, we've seen this done before many, many times... but rarely with such crispness and detail. Very nice work! I'll enjoy reading the details to see how you pulled it off so well.

MUCH better than the other moon shot, I really like the image quality of this image, nice details, texture and while I personally find it uniteresting, technically very well done. Gave this a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2005 09:41:04 AM
Wow, now this is sharp and technically well carried out. Nonetheless, there is nothing particularly original or creative about this shot, which is just a centered composition of the moon.

very, very nice. thanks for the trip!

Excellent tack-sharp photo of the moon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2005 12:29:59 PM
Fantastic shot, can't wait to see what you used to get this!??!?!??! Guessing a 500mm lens with a teleconvertor wit a small sensor (x1.6) - possibly a digiscope... Good luck, oh and can't suggest any improvements!!! 10

This right to left view of the moon is in interesting contrast to the other entered in this challenge. I can not say with assuredness which is better. This is a powerful picture. 8

12/17/2005 08:34:35 PM
Incredible shot. So clear. What lens did you use???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2005 06:28:34 PM
yes! the best photograph of the moon ive seen in this competition... unfortunatley i would catogorize this shot in a different competition... because the moon comes out from 6.pm until which means that. the picture does not tell me what time of the day you really shot it..... nice job though

12/17/2005 12:06:04 PM
Fantastic detail here!

12/17/2005 02:05:28 AM
Wonderful detail, the contrast adjustements are just right to bring out maximum detail.

so sharp but also somehow moving. 9

Absolutly amazing shot, one of the best moon captures I've seen. SO sharp! Yeah, no question, this is a 10 :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2005 10:40:14 PM
very nice detail and contrast, I am interested to see what you used for this. Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2005 08:46:55 PM

Excellent detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2005 09:05:28 AM
I've seen quite a few shots of just the moon in these challenges. This is about as good as I've seen. Crisp and clear. It's not quite as flat as most. Still, it's not very exciting in it's composition or narrative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2005 08:51:32 AM
Really nice shot of the moon. What type of lenz do you have - is it a binaucular?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2005 02:17:30 AM
This is the second entry in this challenge with such an awesome moon, how did you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2005 11:12:09 PM
Very crisp and clear shot of the moon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2005 11:02:12 PM
Holy hell: What did you use to pull off this shot? I've taken myriad pictures of the moon, but none has turned out this phenomenal. Did you just take a picture of a picture, or something? COME ON!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2005 03:44:44 PM
I want to see things I haven't seen before on here. But it sure is a real good picture of the moon, golly. You must have nice equipment. It's too bad that I've seen five million pictures of waxing crescents and gibbouses and full moons and 3/4 moons and what have you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2005 12:50:51 PM
Are you two using the same telescope? Beautiful shot. One of these entries is flopped.

nice

Nice moon shot, but it appears to be upside down???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 10:25:45 PM
Meets the challenge very well. Seems slightly dark. Other than that it is about as clear as they come and has good amount of space around it. The moon was in a good phase and it's always a good subject if you have the lense for it. Good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 08:43:41 PM
Fantastic! Amazing detail! And to think you were awake enough to get this at 4am! A 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 08:08:26 PM
Nice picture, good details. Not easy to get this type of picture of the moon, nicely done.

Excellent photo! Crisp, sharp, and not over exposed. Taken through a telescope?

Such sharpness considering the distance of the subject!!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 01:31:06 AM
Nice moon shot. From your corner of the world, your angle shows more craters than a similar moon shot in this challenge. Both shots have areas that look a little over sharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 12:59:39 AM
The light and shade is good in this image......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 12:45:34 AM
Lovely shot. How does one get such a clear picture of the moon? Must you be in certain places within the world, or is it just about equipment? (The ones I've tried have tended to show what I believe to be atmospheric disturbances...)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 12:43:15 AM
amazing. what sort of lense is it? very sharp and clear. a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2005 12:40:27 AM
gorgeous shot! what kind of zoom lens do you have?
