Moon with Foreground Trees

Click Image for Larger Version

Looking back on some of the moon photos I had taken, I liked the "Moon with Mars" scene I did back in 2003. It is nearly impossible to actually expose both the moon and any foreground object properly in the same shot, so I had never tried to actually re-do that photo. Until Summer 2007.

I used my relatively new Canon 430EX flash unit set on full power with the diffuser on, set my camera on a tripid, and attempted to duplicate the shot I had taken over 4 years earlier. I then superimposed a photo of the moon in because the moon wasn't out that night. The result is this image.
