That is a beautiful picture of the moon. I don't really understand why you don't like it. It is really hard to take a picture of the moon. I have tried it before and yours is much better than mine.

If you use the flash when taking photos like this you only get some light around the camera and lose the magical the darknes give.

Lunar eclipse - Eclipse of the Moon before totality
That isn't bad, night photography can be hard. I haven't done much photography for some time and when I did most of what I did was a very long time ago when I was in graduate school with a Minolta SRT 101. I have an adapter to fit it to a spotting telescope that I have and I used that to take pictures of a lunar eclipse back in those days. The hardest problem even though I was using very high speed film was that with the stationary telescope the moon would move in the field of view as you watched. I did get a few relatively good pictures before and after totality. Here is one where you can even see some features on the moon and that is the Earth's shadow, it was a full moon that night.

Oh Matte, that is really beautiful. I love the moon and you captured it wonderfully. That is really a gorgeous picture and you should be very proud. The leaf covering it slightly; it just works. This is so simple, yet I think it is going to be one of my favorites.:)

Sunset in Hawaii - This was taken with a Canon Powershot A530 without a tripod. I used the Auto Mode and focused just below the sun to make the under expose the photo and bring out the color more.
It is an interesting shot with the Moon between the trees. I have taken several shots of sunsets and have the same problem I don't always have a tripod when taking a picute. At those times I try to fing something to brace myself or the camers to hold it steady.
