Moon 171128

The weather keeps acting tricky, with rain one day, clear skies the next, heavy clouds in the morning that clear up and then turn cloudy again in the evening. So, when the air is clear enough and the moon is up and bright enough to attract attention, I keep trying to get at least one good shot of it. I'm also messing with the little pocket camera to figure out how to get more control over the contrast levels.

Anyway, I ran this photo through two different monochrome level curve filters in Gimp to try to bring out the main features on the face of the moon in one, and then the craters and mountains at the dividing line for the other.

I'll keep practicing. Maybe one day I'll get something I'm satisfied with.
