And you did a phenomenal job, Harriet! The tones, nightlighting, clarity, pov, reflections, & the moon adds to the lovely mood! Congrats on this & good luck!

Thank you, Patrick. I have wanted to do this scene for a long time. Originally we were supposed to shoot it on Saturday the 1st but there were clouds. The forecast called for clouds on Sunday, too but late in the date the sky cleared. We rushed to the pier and were able to take the shots. I think I must have been a good girl or something because the next day was cloudy as well. Sunday was our last chance and it all worked out. I feel blessed that the weather cooperated. #10359816

Very beautifully done! I don't think we "saw" a moon rise here--it was raining pretty much all evening. #10360332

Simply gorgeous! Love everything about it... shimering water, twinkling lights, glowing moon, ominous clouds -- great work!! #10360470

This was the harvest moon. My friend and I went to pier 17 and photographed the moon rise. The moon was photographed then added to the bridge shot. The two shots were one frame apart. This scene has been on my bucket list for years and I finally got to photograph it.
