So would I say this was a successful shoot? I’m on the fence about that. The result has a certain appeal, a “coolness factor” if you will. However, it doesn’t meet my standards from a technical point of view. I have blurred elements in the scene (tree to the right) and the moon shows blown out lights where it leaves Earth’s shadow. Were I to shoot this same composition again I would make sure I have moving trees covered from the start (I actually had enough time on my hands, so this was a stupid mistake to make) and I would probably bracket the moon the instant it catches sunlight again. Anyway, that’s how we learn, by making mistakes.
