As I have mentioned before, I rarely do much editing of my photos beyond some cropping and maybe a bit of color correction. Sometimes, if I feel inspired creatively, I might try to more aggressively use editing software. And there are certain situation that require some editing if I want to display what I am trying to display. Images of the moon often fall under this category. Either from lack of the proper equipment, or lack of skill of the photographer (most likely a bit of both), getting images like this one require a bit of creative license (at least for me). I am no expert at photo editing, as is evident in the image, but the final result is a fair representation of what I saw last night. Enjoy!
