Re: C&C Night shot

Actually, it's a cool shot!  But when I shoot the moon directly, I use M mode.  The moon is very, very bright and so if you expose for the moon, you will get no details in the shadows.  Here is where photoshop can come in handy.  You can take a photo exposed for the moon and one exposed for the darks and superimpose them using layers.  Though that may be considered cheating for some photo purists.  A lens hood would help with the light flare.
