Tonight’s moon rise was shot at Boynton Beach Inlet where I made sure that the horizon had zero clouds in the distance. Not like I could tell because it was completely dark but I didn’t see any obvious clouds so that was enough for me to stay. This was a single exposure HDR shot at 1600ISO, which was a big mistake. I got too comfortable with shooting wildlife at 1600. However with HDR, 1600 has way to much noise which leads to a very blotchy image after processing them. Next time I’ll be sure to stay at 800ISO which is doable with this camera.
