Moon's closest encounter

1st place
This is a single shot where the idea was (in a Bulb setting) to capture the moon in a desired portion of the frame, quickly cover up the lens and then re-position the camera (and change the focal length) blindly to get a cool surreal looking photo. I found a bridge I liked but only after realized that there were trees over the bridge which made the moon sort of pasted on.

Taken: Sunday, 17th April, 2011
Focal length: 300 mm
Shutter speed: 322 sec
Aperture: F29
ISO: 100
Notes: Composed for the moon at full zoom, tripped the shutter, then quickly covered up the lens, moved the tripod-camera system over onto the bridge, zoomed out and took off the cover. Ended the exposure when I thought the bridge got fully exposed.
