Deathly Shadow

Deathly Shadow

THE PHOTO:
One of thousands of images caught by people in my part of the world last night of the full lunar eclipse. Taken using my Sigma 50-500mm lens just after the fullness of the shadow eclipsed (there’s no other word really) the moon. I left the little star in the background for composition balance as there is no other point of reference.

POST PROCESSING:
Shot in RAW, cropped, levels, sharpening.

OTHER:
I have another of the same event for tomorrow which I actually prefer to this shot. And no, this still doesn’t mean a return to regular posting…sorry…
