Supermoon and playing with Photoshop

We had another super moon yesterday. I went outside with Penny and saw the moon behind clouds. By the time I had rushed in, got my camera and got outside again, it was emerging from the clouds. So I only got one photo that I thought I could use.
I have played around with it in Photoshop today, just because I could. No plan to use it, no design in mind. I pretty much wanted to see what would happen.

Here is the original.

Here it is with the glowing edges filter.

Cropped further.

I cropped this one further till it was quite pixilated.  Playing around with lightness brought out lots of little areas of colour that I had not seen earlier.

I also played around with hue, saturation and lightness. The filter I used for these was Poster Edges

All these from one dark photo - amazing.

Thank you, I wasn't sure how it would be, being so dark, but I am quite happy with it. I was inspired by your recent posts about playing with the program and thought I would play too.
