[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The moon was still struggling to share her light, glowing in between the drowning waves the sky had created. The dark overlord already succeeded in disarming the stars of their twinkle. Rage, moon, rage...

A wider shot of the Tagaytay night sky over the weekend.

Hi Cruz,
Great capture, very nice POV.Welldone! Congrat'.


Hi Ron,

I like this better than the previous one. The inclusion of the houses adds a great deal to the composition. It gives us an accurate *feel* of the moment. Galing ng exposure. TFS



I love the composition in here. The sky is magnificent. The lighting on the houses are also great. Well done mate!


Awesome capture! Cheers!

Hi Ron,

Great shot, the sky is amazing, and the houses at the bottom really gives it an interesting contrast.



...Philippines, yes, a beautiful country, "strange" weather patterns and many good photographers.
glad to discover your gallery, ron.
