Phil, Congratulations on finalist. Is the moon a layer added in photoshop, or is the image a DX? A :30 second exposure would certainly overexpose the Moon for whitch the correct exposure would follow the sunny 16 rule, since the Moon is illuminated by the Sun and is exposed for daylight. Great Shot. #4738543

You're right, Mark, that exposure would have completely blown out a normal moon shot. I exposed the scene and the moon separately and combined them later in Photoshop. #4738556

This is an amazing shot! I love how the lines of the pier draw you to the center. #4874338

Man - I have walked down that pier dozens of times and never thought to turn around and take that shot. Thanks for helping this blind man see just a bit more.
