Supermoon Photography: Photographers Comparing Shots from all over the World

The biggest supermoon of 2013 occurred in the last few days (and is still huge), over the evening of June 22-23 – it was a celestial phenomenon which brought out cameras around the globe to capture the event in an impressive flurry of amateur astrophotography. These three samples show the array of ways that the moon can be photographed, with each approaching the giant cheese-rock from a very different perspective:

Supermoon

A supermoon happens when the moon passes unusually close to the Earth, making it appear significantly larger than usual. In the shot above, our trusty space-companion is framed by its own light through the wispy clouds. Its spherical edge glows brilliantly, illuminating the extremely fine detail that is visible when the moon orbits so near. It was taken by Reddit user archioptic on a Nikon D3100 with a Tamron 18-270mm lens. It combines two exposures; the moon was shot at 1/160th of a second at f/11 using 100 ISO, while the clouds were captured at 1/80th of a second at f/6.3 using 3200 ISO. They were then processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Supermoon behind the statue of liberty captured with a superzoom lens

In this image, the moon takes on a hazy orange colour, which contrasts beautifully with the subdued blue of the early morning sky as it sets behind the Statue of Liberty. It was taken by Reddit user Thund3rbolt.

Supermoon over India

Above, the supermoon rises over the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India. Reddit user DontNoodles created this shot using a Tamron 70-300mm lens on an f/8 aperture; it was then processed in Lightroom.
