Focal Length:50mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:NIKON D80

Photographed @ Bangalore

Believe it or not I had to use a shutter speed as high as 1/1000 (@ F/5.6 and ISO 1600) for this shot of a full moon! If someone had told me the full Moon is such a bright object, I wouldn’t have believed it.

I pushed the WB to 8300K to capture the warmth of the rising Moon (auto white balance was resulting in a white moon, which it was not in reality).
