I don’t know how I managed to capture the clouds surrounding the full moon tonight and, indeed, when I exposed for the moon, the clouds didn’t show and when I exposed for the clouds the moon was blown out. It wasn’t apparent until I fiddled a bit with the sliders in Lightroom. I’ve been wanting to capture the clouds surrounding the moon and was thrilled when I managed to do that.
I took this with the 70-200mm lens attached to the D7100 with the 2X teleconverter set to f/8, ISO 200, 1/20 second exposure. I fiddled with contrast, highlights, shadow, blacks, and clarity to get this result.
