Attempting to Capture the Supermoon
“The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon.”
Once again, I’m trying to capture the moon. This time, it’s the supermoon. And I’m using a tripod, a 18-250 mm telephoto lens, no flash, and editing. I think I did better this time. Let me know what you think. To see my previous attempt, you can go to the post, Attempting to Capture the Moon.

The supermoon, on Sunday, behind some clouds, trees, and powerlines in my neighborhood. Except for the border and the website mark, no editing on this one.
Same photo with HDR effect added on PicMonkey.

The same supermoon in the clear Saturday sky above the same trees and power lines, but not enough light to show anything but the moon. I tried placing the settings to let in more light into the camera, but I lost the detail of the moon. So, to get the craters to show, I settled for the dark surroundings. The border and website mark are the only edits.
The previous photo cropped using PicMonkey to show a closer view of the supermoon.
