It's not unusual

That's impressive color in the leaves if the moon was the only light! What kind of post-processing did you do?

The funny thing is, because our eyes work differently in dim light we do not realize that the spectrum of the moon light is very close to the sun's - that's why it appears mostly white to our eyes. This is what camera any camera will show. The exposure will make the image brighter or dimmer, but the color will be similar to sun light.

To us the colors in the moon light change because the biological mechanism of detecting light changes when it becomes dim.
