Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse by Crimson-Fhang Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse by Crimson-Fhang
*Thank you to everyone who has taken interest in this photograph to either comment, favorite or just look at. This is now one of the most popular lunar eclipse photographs on Diviant Art.*


I Took nearly 300 pictures over the course of the lunar eclipse and this was the only one to come out. I wish it was better focused but had to manual focus because it was so dim. Critique is welcome.


Canon EOS T2i
F-stop f/5.6
Exposure time 2 seconds

Looks great. The focus is about as good as you can really get. I used a Canon PS-SX20IS for my pics, and with a 4sec exposure, I was getting blur from the moon's motion. Were you using a tripod? Anyway, great work, and kudos fro braving the cold!

oh yes, tripod was a must with an almost 3 second exposure time. I was using my tablet PC to control the shutter and after taking pictures for almost an hour my hands were too cold for the screen to register me touching it.

very little editing was needed. I cropped it down and added about 2% contrast to bring out some more detail.
