Still messing around trying to learn layers, stacking, masks, etc. This one is closer to what I am after. I wanted to show that the eclipse started while it was dark and ended when it had gotten quite a bit lighter outside. I think this does that. Unfortunately, while the moon was in deepest shadow, it went into a bank of marine layer haze and disappeared. As last one, each shot is 10 mins apart, all at iso 200 and varying shutter speeds. I layered all the dark images together (first 8 moons from top to bottom), then layered that image onto the last moon (which was quite lighter, and used a gradient mask spanning the whole photo from top to bottom to make the top portion dark and the bottom portion lighter. I am sure I did this the hard way but as mentioned before, I've never tried this and am fumbling through various books to learn this (I am not a great book learner,need actual demonstrations to really get it). Fun to try though. Taken at Windnsea beach in La Jolla California with a Canon 5DII, 24-105 lens at about 50 mm. Any thoughts are appreciated.
