moonset
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
moonset
moonset
1/10, f8.0, 75-200 USM, Sarajevo, BiH, dawn
Althou one might think so, moon was not added separately...it took me half an hour of shooting in extremely cold weather to get a proper metering.

It's a great photo, pure and simple. A big print of this, if you have the resolution, would be a very dramatic print.


Even if it isn't real, it's stunning. Good work just as the sun was rising. Did you plan this?

Hi
While I fully accept that the sun was not added it does appear that it was and takes away form the photo.
Since you had the time would not a closer shot showing the sun glistening off the roofs and leaving a impression of warm people tucked up away from the weather really grap the attention and tell a story?

Well Done!

Wow! This photo is amazing and I was totally surprised when I enlarged it from the thumbnail, as the thumbnail definitely does not tell the story! Congratulations for having the persistence to stay on your photo shoot despite the cold conditions. Having taken some cold weather photos, I know what it is to have a cold tripod and camera to work with!

Hi,
Overall a very pleasing photo. Hoever I find the moon (the title is Moonset) a bit too yellow and the blue cast of the snow a bit too blue.

I was looking through old POTD's and came accross this. Wow, great capture. This exposure is sooo hard. The lighting must have all come together just as the sun was rising and moon setting, A few minutes more, moon is gone, sun is up. Great persistence!!! This one goes in My Favorites.
