Beautiful work, congratulations

Amazing capture. And really intriguing to me... We can see the fisheye effect from wide angle lens, but the size from moon became from a telephoto. I believe this is a photoshop work. Nicely done.

Maybe a combination. Teleconverter + Wide angle lens? :-)

Behind The Lens

Location

The photo was taken in Brooklyn Township, Pennsylvania in the Endless Mountains on a farm that dates back to the 1850s.

Time

The shot was taken at about 11:17pm in April of 2015.

Lighting

The light on the horizon is from the towns about 40 miles south of the location.

Equipment

Taken with a Canon 5D Mk3 mounted on a tripod and using a manual focus Rokinon 12mm f/2.8 radial fish eye lens, ISO1250, 30 secs., f/2.8 .

Inspiration

The location has always been an inspiring place for me where I have probably taken a thousand photos.

Editing

The shot is actually a composite where the sky and landscape were shot one evening and the moon on a separate evening. Initially processed in Lightroom and the two photos were then combined in Photoshop to produce the final shot.

In my camera bag

Canon 5DMk3/4, 20mm Sigma f/1.5, 50mm Sigma f/1.4, Canon 70-300 zoom, Canon 40mm STM

Feedback

Patience, patience, patience. Keep attempting the shot you see in your mind's eye until it comes out.
