Thank you, Øivind, for kind words.

I guess the trick was the combination of the wide dynamic range of Sigma fp even at ISO1600, the use of the cloud as the ad-hoc ND filter and sheer luck!  :D  The "color mode (corresponding to picture control of Nikon) off" setting (which in effect works similarly to the log profile) also help retain the highlight.

Thank you, Øivind and Anthohy!

The clouds offers variations, which, to me, keeps the shooting a full moon inspiring.

What's a moon without a cloud, Mr Cloud!

Amazing shot, Ken!

If you mean me by Mr. Cloud (lol), the clouds offers an infinite amount of variations to shoot the moon, especially the full one.

Ken, I would also like to know which focal length of the lens you used.

Paco, I think it is s a nice compositional idea to guide the viewers' eyes to the moon.
