An attempt to get both the moon (distance from my 500mm lens 384,403 km (238,857 miles), and some pussy willow (3m-10 ft away) in focus at the same time. I can't understand why it didn't work ;-)
Impressive focusing !

oooooooooh but it did Chris! such beautiful colour and form! very clever!
15 Feb 2011 6:23am
Never mind it didn't work, the results are beautiful!! And yes, do keep tryin, maybe someday when the moon's closer...huh? LOL!!! Wonderful shot and that lens I would kill for. Drop me a line if you wanna have me take care of somebody!!!!
15 Feb 2011 6:54am
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE !!!!!!
15 Feb 2011 6:57am
A fantastic image, I've rarely seen the Moon so illuminated.
15 Feb 2011 7:08am
15 Feb 2011 7:28am
LOL - you are so funny - but I love the bokeh which seems to echo the moon.
15 Feb 2011 7:31am
Not so much depth of field as deep space!
15 Feb 2011 7:44am
The moon looks fantastic against that blue, and the yellow adds to the image, pussy willows did you say :)
15 Feb 2011 8:05am
"Blue Moon"??? I think immediately of a song with that title. ;-D
A beautiful bright moon, with a wonderful bokeh.
15 Feb 2011 8:14am
wow - this is fabulous!!! so clear focus on the moon, and the front bokeh (is it called that?) enhances it so well! **applause**
15 Feb 2011 8:23am
Splendid shot and superb bokeh. 5 *. Good day.
15 Feb 2011 8:45am
Fantastic shot.. try a difference lens it might work..lol..
15 Feb 2011 8:50am
Wow, nice detail in the moon. I like how the pussy willow looks 'spacey' ^^
15 Feb 2011 8:57am
Wow..that's the capacity of lens...Great shot.
15 Feb 2011 9:15am
That's beautifully done Chris. Thank goodness for depth of field :)
15 Feb 2011 9:57am
Very beautiful and unreal !
15 Feb 2011 10:24am
This is beautiful!
15 Feb 2011 11:03am
Ooooooh! That's not the way it's supposed to look? But it still looks good to me.
15 Feb 2011 11:20am
bien sur que c'est du boulot !!!:) je n'en doute pas !! et le resultat en vaut la chandelle !!! une image superbe vraiment !!:) 5*
15 Feb 2011 11:33am
Great shot of the moon...Well done Chris..
15 Feb 2011 12:11pm
Buy a pinhole camera, then you'll be laughing!!
Still looks good.
15 Feb 2011 12:41pm
nice try, though! maybe next time you wait for the moon to get a little closer ...! happy ST to you!
15 Feb 2011 1:16pm
Great shot! I rather like that the pussy willow is not in focus.
15 Feb 2011 1:29pm
A beautiful,beautiful picture!!
15 Feb 2011 1:35pm
Great image and love the colours and the out of focus circles echoing the shape of the moon!
15 Feb 2011 2:40pm
Well this really works...beautiful!
15 Feb 2011 2:53pm
Most impressive !!! lot of details !!!! nice composition !!!
15 Feb 2011 3:18pm
I like the attempt and I think it was quite successful. Very sharp moon image and the blur of the leaves adds a softening touch that I like. Well done.
15 Feb 2011 3:25pm
Dam'n Pussy Willows kept moving (You've always got a problem controlling Pussy),better luck next time. '>)
15 Feb 2011 3:30pm
@Jeff: Yeah, I would have thought that with the length of my lens, taming pussy would have been no problem, but you can never be absolutely sure!
Too bad for the pussy pillow. Your moon is delightful and that's enough for a marvelous shot.
15 Feb 2011 5:01pm
The moon is beautiful ... A great shot :)
15 Feb 2011 5:24pm
oh yeah! happy st.
15 Feb 2011 5:35pm
BEAUTIFUL! The moon is so fascinating. Even if we know how it works, it's really impressive to see such a massive "rock" in the sky, rotating around us, with its own surface details. Great shot, Chris!
15 Feb 2011 5:44pm
Poor excuse for a manky lens!
15 Feb 2011 6:35pm
Haha, 3 foot to infinity in focus, nice one, super detail in the moon
15 Feb 2011 6:52pm
Totally unique - what a result
15 Feb 2011 7:35pm
the result is fabulous !!!
15 Feb 2011 7:46pm
works for me!
15 Feb 2011 8:05pm
Very nice shoot ! That's beautiful
15 Feb 2011 8:18pm
Fantastical shot. Great image of the moon, and the giant out of focus stars.
15 Feb 2011 8:19pm
15 Feb 2011 9:10pm
haha! your words made me laugh - I can't think why it couldn't work :)
This is such a beautiful image (although it's not what you had in mind) I love the detail of the moon and the blue! You've got one 'mean' lens there.
15 Feb 2011 9:24pm
15 Feb 2011 9:40pm
DoF would be an interesting calculation and the circle of confusion would be equivalent to drinking a bittle of whisky before taking the photo :)
16 Feb 2011 12:30am
You make me laugh, cute! The moon has excellent detail. I haven't taken a good moon shot [no jokes now!] yet. I guess sacrificing the pussy willow is okay. We'll let it pass ;)
16 Feb 2011 1:07am
Yeah, weird why that won't work! Great image - I had one similar a few days back, but don't have a lens that brings the moon in that close! Jealous.....
16 Feb 2011 1:20am
What a great effect! The perfect mixture of your creativity and nature's creativity. I love the way this beautiful detailed moon is floating among the pussy willow planets in blue space. Magic! Love it.
16 Feb 2011 1:25am
16 Feb 2011 5:36am
Great image of the moon friend! Excellent shot!
16 Feb 2011 7:53am
Ooooh, that´s beautiful! esp the "pussy" willow in this frame! The clarity of the moon and the beautiful blue sky are precious! Much better than the night shots of old moon. More lighthearted.
16 Feb 2011 9:32am
sometimes I wish that moon weren't so dang far away - for it makes the photographers job much harder I must say
16 Feb 2011 7:30pm
The yellow complements the blue, and the moon is in focus.
17 Feb 2011 1:09am
nice, very creative picture :-)) i like it
17 Feb 2011 8:06am
Very nice... I like to get those fuzzy foregrounds in sometimes too.
21 Feb 2011 6:35pm
A great shot with this beautiful bokeh.
Congratulations for the spotlight colors
24 Feb 2011 7:06pm
I see you swept in to the Color Spotlight with this one while I was distracted elsewhere - well done !!
24 Feb 2011 11:24pm
@Ronnie 2¢: I truly son't understand the concept of colour spotlights!. I'll ask Jason how it works when I meet up with him in Prague
and now congrats on the spotlight color! really a special shot
24 Feb 2011 11:44pm
Congratulation on spotlight color...great
25 Feb 2011 7:39am
very well done
25 Feb 2011 7:47am
Very nice result!
25 Feb 2011 2:48pm
Congratulations for the "Spotlight Color". Good day.
26 Feb 2011 8:21am
