I don't think it is clear-able. Matt. There is not likely to be any detail in the moon with those settings. A separate exposure for detail in the moon could be combined with this or an even brighter one to get detail everywhere, if you wanted. This shot has its own charm though. Sometimes our own shooting problems yield serendipity and this is one of them. I might raise the exposure on the top with a gradient layer to get more visibility in the top of that wonderful tree, and increase the glow in the bottom half with a gradient layer and masking, to enhance the glow in the background (including the moon), make it look more intentional and dramatic.
Suspect you're right, Minnie. So, I will try your suggestions and also will try again tonight; it will be later, however, and is forcast to be cloudy, so I may haave to go with what I have. I took another a few days ago that I planned for P52, and may use that instead. Staay tuned. Matt
Minnie, Here's the limit of my pp skills.
