Its a full moon tonight, and it is so bright. just wondering if anyone has ever tried exposing on film for moonlight? or if they are going to tonight on a DSLR.
And what everyone percieves moonlights colour to be and what gels/ filters they would use to create this effect. Or if anyone has any examples of images they've shot.

Merry Christmas

Tip: If you are going to shoot the moon, expect it to be fairly brighter than you imagine. I've spot metered at decen't bright moon at a F/22 @ 500 ISO.

Also, when the moon is overhead is the best time to capture it, because the lower it is in the sky, the more atmosphere is blocking it, which leads to more aberrations of light, color and focus. Overhead ,there will be much less, especially if you are in the darkest surroundings you can find.

We've discussed this many many many times. Here's the search results for "moonlight."

DO NOT MISS TONIGHT! Just after sunset, the full Moon and Mars will rise in the east less than 2o apart. These are the two brightest objects in the evening sky; hanging so close together, they'll look absolutely dynamite.
