Its always good to challenge one's self with regards to a hobby or skill, so the other day I was put to the test with getting a full moon (the "Snow Moon" as they call it) juxtaposed with the iconic Space Needle. I saw the potential for the shot the morning before during my commute, so I planned to try to capture it the next day, which proved to be clear.
I found that given the brightness of the full moon, its nearly impossible to capture moon features (marae, etc) it with a foreground object before dusk. Its just not possible given the ranges of light involved. So I did as best I can, and faked it by reducing the glare and positioning the moon behind the needle.
