Day 236 - Moon Play

It's a full moon tonight so I took the camera to the farm and tried some moon shots. The idea was inspired by photos sent to me by Diane. Thanks Diane. I didn't have my tripod so when I took the pictures I had to focus on Peg or the moon. If one was focused the other was blurry. My theory is that I needed to use a larger depth of field. Since I didn't have a tripod I couldn't have my shutter speed too low. Not sure if I'm correct but it sounds good in my head. Any other theories or actual reasons are welcome.
I have to admit that I played with the pics a bit in Photoshop. I took the focused moon from one shot and put it over the blurry moon in this shot. I also worked a bit on my signature. Thanks to Julie and Monica I was able to download some new fonts AND learned how to make my signature a Brush (define brush). I realized after posting that the signature is a bit small but I only saved the picture as jpeg so I couldn't go back and adjust. The good news is I did figure out how to make it bigger for next time. Thanks for all the help. I couldn't have done it without you all.

Nice idea - I really feel that with photoshop is creating a new art form, not quite photography but very interesting nonetheless. Beautifully done.
