    Great time of day, for this capture. I like the shadows from the balconies. Also the bird and moon, add finishing touches.

Great timing (bird and moon) detail, shadows, tones it all works. Fab shot.

Was the bird and the moon well timed, or well placed to create even more exquisite composition, and adding more detail? The shadows, lighting, and tonality works perfectly. Well done, Usman.

Thanks for your comments everyone.

Bunny, the bird was placed in the window as it was actually shot in the right of the frame. The moon was totally added later during post-processing.

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of February, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
