[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is last Sunday's moon to complete the scenario - yesterday's sunset post was on one side and this moon was on the other. An enjoyable moment to capture! The blue hour was still visible so exposure wasn't that bad.

Hi Francis

This is a genre of photography I need to explore, and learn how to switch off the auto settings and use manual. The yellow cheesy color contrasts well against the blue sky. Reasonable sharpness & excellent motion blur of the clouds. Tfs!

Hi Francis.

Very impressive composition, I like the gradient sky and the wisps of cloud, gives much feel and mood, wonderful tones to the moon too. TFS

Hi Francis,
A nice one indeed. I like the colours and the almost dreamy effect. I think you cropped this from a larger image? That may account for a slight lack of sharpness, but that does not bother me at all.

Hi, Francis.A lovely composition and a great POV to capture the full moon. The clouds and the contasting hues below add to the effect. Photo is sharp, well exposed and soothing. Framing and presentation is excellent and add to the beauty of this spectacle of nature.Cheers

As Chris sasy the contrast between blue sky and yellow moon is very attractive. I think I may have cropped of the lower cloud but nice job

I like the results you have achieved in this picture, Francis!

The scene almost looks surreal, and the contrasts are very well shown here.
Good sharpness (it could be bit better) and colors are natural.
The "flowing" clouds really add to the artwork in the picture.
Well caught!

Hi Francis,

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition, good focus and excellent tone, so it's impressive to see the round moon with yellow and shade and floating black clouds in the sky. It's interesting in sky with some color layers, too. Good artistic work.
Have a nice day.

Kind regards,

This is a great photo.
I love the color contrast between the upper and lower parts of the photo.

Thanks for sharing,
