It's been raining here for weeks with no sight of let up so I thought I'd get creative. This is a combination of 3 images I had taken in the past.

1) A star field
2) An overexposed waxing crescent to capture the Earthshine portion
3) First quarter moon

Then I carefully layered, blended, etc in Photoshop to get this HDR image of the first quarter moon with Earthshine floating out there in outer space. Fake picture, but kinda cool effect. I saw whats-his-face from Australia do it and thought I'd give it a try.

I didn't exactly do it right, so I may try for a more accurate version in the future.
