This shot is nearly straight from the camera. I probably boosted the exposure a bit for the skyline lights. The moon was only about 1.5 degrees above the horizon and was still partially obscured by a low haze. Just a few minutes later, as it rose above the capitol building, its brightness increased considerably, making it impossible to appropriately expose for both moon and skyline.

wow!! beautiful!! Such fantastic detail in the moon, your exposure is spot on and I love the starbursts you have on the lights and the colours really top this off nicely, excellent :o)

This is spectacular!!! I'm trying to learn the best way to shoot the moon/planets and was viewing this Gallery when I came accross this picture. Was it as pretty in person? How much did you alter the shot from the original?
