Smudge of an Eclipse

Since we've just had in Europe a small partial lunar eclipse, here is the first result. The image presents the "maximum" of the eclipse, in both "normal" coloring (that is without saturating the colors) and also in an exaggerated view of the colors. Interesting to note the general yellowish color accentuated by the shadow (or from the penumbra itself), yet a bluish-red coloring of the umbra.
