Photographer's Note

Earthshine

No, it's not a full moon.
It's what we call a young moon, setting 2 hours after the sun.
Long exposure does overexpose the part where there is sunshine on the moon, but gives light to something that is very hard to see with your bare eyes, the so called Earthshine. Light goes from the sun, lightens the almost full Earth, than goes back to the moon and again goes back to us so we can see it. Because of the 10s exposure, the moon is somewhat smeared, but this long exposure gives light also to the hill Smarjetna Gora, which is lighten by cityshine from the city of Kranj. I had to run this photo few times through noise reduction programs, because ISO400 was used which has a lot of noise on my Z10. Some colour correction was also made, to show approx. the real colours.
