When taking pictures of the moon the aim for me is to capture the moon but more so the light of the moon, the way it touches everything and to create an image with a mood...I find shots of the moon alone uninteresting and I feel some people waste to much time trying to do this...look for what the moon shows you not the moon alone...

A few takes on the moon

Comment by Earl E. Gibson on December 1, 2012 at 1:50pm

I have to agree with Aamir.  For me taking a shot of the moon by itself is an effort to get that depth.  Show the three dimensionality of the surface itself.  Point in case.  When you take a shot of the full moon, it really seems kind of flat (to me that is), though when I take a shot of a partial moon, then I get to see the depth of the craters and a sense of how rugged it is.

Laura, It would have been better, if you had added some shot in moonlight to emphasize your point, 

I agree the moonlight permeating a landscape is more romantic . Those who try to capture moon itself do so as a challenge (as it require and understanding of camera setting) and the thrill of displaying ruggedness of moon surface--texture in photographic language.

The moon is not that hard if you understand the lighting and have a long enough lens.  The surface is interesting and by having several shots taken at different times, we discovered something about the way it moves.  Not perhaps that exciting for a romantic, but exciting enough for the more scientifically inclined.
