This shot was March 20th at 7:18 PM from Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA. I used a 300mm lens with a 2x teleconverter on a tripod with a shutter release.
I can’t decide if I like the B&W or the color better. The reflection of the sunset in the windows on the houses on Whidbey Island is nice and shows up a little better in the color. But the B&W seems sharper and less hazy. The adjustments were made in Lightroom and the B&W conversion was made of the final color image in Silver Effects Pro 2.
Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikkor 300mm PF with 2x teleconverter
ISO: 100 1/25sec f/8 (wide open with the 2x doubling the effective aperture)
Totally awesome photo – like the monochrome better. We saw the moon rise in Portland, but were missing the spectacular backdrop….and I didn’t bring the right lens to the US. But it was still nice. Congrats on your photo!
Thanks Marcus. You got a couple good shots yourself.
They should schedule more full moons.
Thanks, Allan, much appreciated! I guess we have to wait to 2020….
I like both. The results are so different—moon seems foreboding in black/white photo—like an alien rising. Much softer in color. Like the lighted houses too.
Thanks, Pat. I think your description is pretty good.
