It's long been a goal of mine to take a good moon-in-a landscape shot.. (still is actually)..That dratted beautiful moon. It's shiny and it moves and it rises from the horizon so fast (at least in these latitudes). As with most landscapes it is very hard to get all of a landscape in focus. The classic idea is to focus roughly one third of the way in towards the horizon, then another third of the way up and then another and in editing software stack two or three photos to get that calendar quality.
I did none of that, I found a simpler way.
I took my favourite moon over the lake water shot and combined it with my best detailed moon shot from the same shoot and combined them by copying the moon (lasso, paste, content-aware move tool) and pasting it onto the other photo in photoshop (then lasso the original moon, edit/fill - content aware/black). Much easier than mucking about with layers.
This and this
Hopefully, if I didn't tell you, you wouldn't even know.
Have a good weekend,
