My photo is real! I darkened the moon in photoshop. Would you like to see the untouched up photo?

that looks much realer. it doesn't have the obvious edges around it an the darkening made it look as though it was not from that sky. the moon still looks enlarged though, unless your lens is a +300mm.

Ed, can you plot a graph of the accelerations a person feels during a month on earth?

like a sine wave super-imposed on a circular orbit?

thanks,

Ed, my shot was in May of '77 (sigh).
Thanks for the compliment. Get this - the print was made from an interneg of
a slide. I had a couple of prints made and one went up in a restaurant in
Seattle. I got some requests for copies and when I went to the envelope
that the interneg and slide came back from the printer's in imagine my
surprise to find neither were in there! This was a couple of months later
so when I went back and told them somebody had either filched them or lost
them I was up the proverbial creek. It still rankles.

Gumby, I have a 1200 mil zoom on my camera. I am not sure what zoom the photo was shot at, but I assure you the moon was large that night. I was in a canoe on Lower Ohlmer Lake on the Skilak Lake Loop Road between Sterling and Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula. I just wanted to share the solstice moon from up here, no intention of trying to mislead anyone on my part.
We had a spectacular sunset that night too, but now I am unsure about sharing those photos too. Strange how the moon can rise and the sun can set around the same time up here.

And here in Van - well, on top of Little Diamond Head in Jan '84 in temps about -20Cº I saw sun rise and moon set . Wild.

Didn't mean to offend you, and definitely don't want to keep you from sharing other photos. The fact is that the way that the human eye sees the moon and makes it look large while it is near the horizon is an optical illusion that is not captured by the camera. In the vast majority of cases when the effect is seen in imagery, it is the result of manipulation during processing.
As an aside, if you want to know what zoom it was shot at (and you're on windows) you can view the original in windows explorer, right click on the image and select properties, then scroll down through the exif data til you find it. I assume you can do something in a similar fashion on a mac (or search for how to find exif data on a mac).
