The moon

It gets dark really early now. We were walking back at around 6pm when we spied a cresent moon in a clear, cloudless sky.

From afar, it looks like a cresent you could draw with a stencil, with perfectly clear boundaries.
But look closer and you can see the shadows and bumps.

Overexpose the shot, and the entire moon emerges from the shadows.
