Perfect contrast and sharpness, astonishing shot of the moon at its best .

very nice photo, but are astro-photos suitable for this site? I think no.
Otherwise there will be a massive upload of this kind of photos and I think this is not what we want.

I love everything at least remotely related to space, so I really appreciate a good shot of the Moon.

Unfortunately, this image is a bit too blurry. Don't take it too harsh though, it's not your fault. There are 100 kilometers of air and dust between your camera and its target. But maybe a bit of retouching could help ;)

@insubria: I disagree, IFL is for any sort of photos, and diversity is what makes this site my favourite source of wallpapers. We've got everything from moth nests to Apple Stores to famous buildings to trees. And, in my opinion, more astrophotos would be nice!

Actually, I like this photo and it is much better than these pure photoshop images.

It takes skill to take a close up image of the moon! Nice job

I have seen this object in the sky many times and now I know what it is. Great shout of an old companion.

I'd love to see a full moon shot as well. Thanks for the contribution.

I agree. This is an excellent photo. The warm tone of the image is interesting in that most pictures of the moon are quite cool - except for the occasional harvest moon, which is warmed by the dust in the sky. Finding a location to shoot the moon with no significant atmospheric distortion is a feat in itself. Selecting and using the right equipment is also a challenge.

Well done. I have no criticism to offer here. I don't understand why anyone would think such an image is inappropriate for this site. I cannot imagine any scenic wonder is outside the scope and mission of the Lift.

This is an excellent shot of the moon, perhaps even my second or third favorite out of all the moon shots I have. I also love space images and would like to see more here. I have touched up many amazing Nasa Pics but don't think it' appropriate for me to submit or can I? Anyone who has taken a shot of the moon knows this is a good one. I like almost full moon shots like this because more details are brought out in craters and it looks overall less flat than a full moon shot. Nothing wrong here keep up the good work and thank you! =)
