I remember trying to take a picture of the moon with older cameras, and I never could get the details and clarity like I have done in this shot. I really like it and hope others do too.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A straightforward moon shot that fits the challenge.

It's really a very open brief so your shot of the moon is simplicity itself, though it would require some careful consideration beforehand. I'm really surprised how much light you had it must have been a really bright moon, so bright you may even have got away without a tripod though I assume you did use one.

The detail in the moon is quite extraordinary and you have every right to be well pleased with the result, apart from all the other detail I love the craters on the right hand edge. Your mono processing is good with lovely rich blacks as a backdrop. There's nothing really to fault or to add, well done. It's a shame you didn't get any comments during the challenge but I hope this makes up for it.

Thank you for your submission, Sid.
