These two Images, I call it The Moon's Nebula. Critique the crap out of it. Trying to find a balance between the noise and softness. Anyone want to take a crack at it? PM me and I'll send you the RAW files.

I added very little color Luminance and left the Saturation Neutral in LR, most of the color was already there. I increased the Darkness 2/3 a stop, added a little Contrast and added a little NR.

I hope to get the opportunity again to try a off center shot as I never seen the Clouds lit up with Color by the Moon before. Maybe I never tried looking, but I'll pay more attention now...............

GAH I tried for an hour a week ago to get this same shot, and I just couldn't do it without blowing out the moon. Nice work!

I used Spot Metering and +2/3 EC, then in LR, I reduced the exposure by -0.66...............

Drop the moon from the first one into the second one and print it. I like the texture texture and color on the second shot, but the moon itself is blurry.

It's burry because of the Clouds, there was nothing I could do about that. It was a Partly to Mainly Cloudy Night. The Moon was in and out PDQ...............

"Nothing you could do."???

You can drop the moon from the first shot into the second sky and have one excellent composite shot, instead of two shots both of which could be better. (The moon in the first shot would be benefited by a more dynamic sky, second shot needs a moon with better definition. Between the two you have everything - now just put them together.)

All I have is DPP and LR5.2 . I might be wrong but I don't think you can "Photochop" with the afore mentioned Programs. Even if they did, I don't know how to do that...............
