Captured at Dawn. Handheld, cannot use tripod since the moon at vertical (straight-up) position. I leaned on my car, pressed the camera firmly on my face while viewing the moon through viewfinder.

Desaturated from a color version (it was slightly purplish in original version).

Lens: Minolta 500mm F/8 Reflex

Benyamin, Very nice shot and good details. Ganesh

Hey Ben, very asthetically pleasing shot of the half moon and from the sounds of it under difficult conditions. The night sky provides a very effective frame for this one.

Thanks, John

Wonderful details! GREAT!!!!
I like to turn to those moon maps and see which seas and rills I'm looking at. It's fascinating to see their names.

Hi Benyamin,
very moody shot of the Moon here, nice to see it not in it's Full Moon phase for once. The dark side adds a bit of mystery...

Hi Ben.
Unfortunately, almost all time I am out of Internet. Now I have few hours for critique. First of all I like quality of your shot so much. It is blameless. Secondly, I am interested for your new lens. What do you think about it? How much convenient the lens without a variable aperture value is? My best wishes and TFS.

Hello Benyamin,
wonderful shot well exposed and with excellent details. level of sharpness is perfect and black sky is the perfect frame.
Thanks for sharing and regards

Hi Ben, Saw Alexei's link to your moon. I like the very fine details you have made visible. Excellent contibution. TFS. Murray.

Hello Benyamin.

Excellent image, nice composition.

Jose Luis.

Hi Ben,
A great idea to make this a black and white version. The contrast between the black heaven and the half moon is great. You did great on getting details considering you could not use a tripod. The square framing does the photo much good.
