Nice shots. You might want to take a look at your color balance. The second shot of the moon is somewhat pink in color. If you have a RAW image, just set the WB reference to the Moon itself. That should get you really close to accurate color.

Thank you for the tip. Jerry! You’re absolutely right, a WB reference point on the moon should be accurate since the moon is basically B&W... Never thought about that—I tend to always rely on the sliders.

However, in this shot, I actually went for a purplish look on purpose. I purposely shifted the WB towards blue and magenta in camera. Just a personal preference, as also evident by the preceding shot 

Again, thank you for the feedback!
