F6.3 , 1/40 , ISO320 - For the Moon

Post-processing Details:

Shots of the Moon stacked and blended with foreground using Photoshop.
The image of the foreground was taken later to get the warm lights of public illumination

Image Details:

For the planning I took in consideration that would be more appealing to have a subject for foreground ( little village) , a subject for middle ground ( wind mills) and the Super Moon in the background.
Then using my knowledge of the surrounding area and using Photo pills and Google Earth I come up with this location that fulfil all the pre established composition requirements.
Unfortunately few clouds near the horizon hide the Moon a bit in the early minutes of its ascension.
