While preparing for the eclipse, I shot this picture of a gibbous moon. Instead of leaving the picture "normal" I increased the color saturation in Photoshop a bit to see if I could reproduce add some interest to the image. I was very surprised by the large range of lunar color captured in a simple snap shot.
