I got nothin'. Just thought I would start the thread with it
I've often noticed that I can see the moon through the skylights in the sunroom/computer room. Somehow, until tonight, I never caught it when it was closer to the horizon and bigger. I removed a window screen a few days ago to facilitate shooting from up here, but note to self - before you crank open a window, first lock up every cat in the house, even the one downstairs!
Don't look too closely at the moon! I took a series of shots, in the course of which the moon moved away from the trees. I instinctively raised the exposure, and all that achieved was chromatic aberration, and then I moved back down and finally got some detail on the moon. Then I copied the detailed moon, dropped it into the blown-out white sphere, and erased edges until the paste job didn't look crude. Still, I learned a lot about the new compact, most importantly how the manual focus works on the thing!

Very nice image.
Before the sunrise this morning. Light Fog due to humidity and record high temps.
Another photo taken a few days ago visiting friends at a local, old and historical Elks Club. And wouldn't you know, they had a real stuffed Elk standing there. He almost seemed to be sniffing the odors of the dinner that was about to be served....

I believe it was George Orwell who said - “To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.”
