    Worth the -5 Pete.
    Lovely detail again captured in this image.
    If I have one observation to make ...it would probably be that the contrast is a wee bit high. But my only real critical view would be that a full blooded Scotsman found -5 something to have to brave.

    Jesting with you!

    Hi Pete,

    Another great shot, you manage to capture so much detail. I was out last night too and agree it was freezing!!

    Thanks for posting

    Not my favorite Canon Pete. I think it's over-processed and too saturated. Maybe it's was the look you were looking for...

    Cheers for the input FBT, actually the saturated comment kinda throws me . The raw image was Desaturated in Adobe Bridge !

    With it being 98% of Full Moon , I upped the Contrast , as spotted by Dublin Sky Watch , so as to bring out more detail. The Tonality over all, on my monitor , has a good range.

    Clear Skies
