For this shot I tried to get the exposure for the moon right and then use a flash to fill in the tree which would have normally been just a black silhouette. The wierd clouds came because it was a rather long exposure and the clouds were moving by, thus appearing streaked on the image. I wound up having to lighten the image to get the leaves bright enough, and that blew out the moon, so I had to combine two images and merge in a moon with a lower exposure than the tree. This was almost the unanimous pick of the class as the best one I took for the course. Others to follow.
