I was surprised how much surface detail I could pick up with my lens. The moon was very brightly lit this night.

Hello from the Critique club

An interesting image that makes a contribution to the free challenge

The level of detail is, as you have remarked, quite amazing. Looking at your technical details 1/400 at f5.6 at ISO 100 you’re right, it was brightly lit, wow! Whilst you have a very competent shot with lots of surface detail its low contrast detracts somewhat, I think you could have given it more impact by raising the contrast so that the moon really shone out from the black background. There’s not a lot you can do compositionally but I think placing it slightly off-centre does improve it a little.

Thanks for your entry Drake
