I took this image on our urban night workshop in Portland last weekend during the super full moon. There was a lot of challenging light going on in this scene. I used layer masking techniques to combine five different exposures for the main scene in order to contain the high dynamic range. The moon was brought in from a 6th exposure. Using more than one exposure is the only way to get a properly exposed image of the moon within the landscape at night. The lighted side of the moon is always a daylight exposure because that's what it is...sun shining on dirt and rock.
