To which, the photographer replied, “I chose my exposure settings to max exposure possible without blowing out highlights on the bright part of the Moon and then brought out shadows in post to get the earthshine to show. It is easier to bring out shadow details, but impossible to fix blown out highlights.” Another individual took the route of hilarity while replying and shared, “My daughter called it a croissant moon, so that’s what it is now. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.” A third posted, “Fantastic idea. Perfect planning. Amazing execution. Thanks so much Sigma for inspiring us!” A fourth Twitter user added, “Wow that’s amazing!
