Many Moons Ago

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: The Moon II (Expert Editing)
Camera: Nikon D7000
Location: Yorkshire, England
Date: Sep 2, 2012
Galleries: History, Horror
Date Uploaded: Sep 2, 2012

This is All Saints Church in Yorkshire, England. It dates back to 1132 A.D. There is no town or village anywhere near it. Very strange.


Thanks for the comments and votes. This did better than I imagined especially among some of the great entries in this challenge.

The picture is composed from 4 elements - the church, the moon, the cloud, and lastly the sky between the church and the cloud.

The bulk of the picture is a 3 exposure HDR.

The sky from the horizon up to the cloud is a gradient created in PS.

The moon and the cloud are separate shots taken on the first day of the challenge. The church was taken on the last.

Thanks again.

Nice detail. The church looks like it is tilting (could be my old eyes, lol.)

One of my top five. Very eerie and what an interesting cloud frame for this scene. Voted earlier.

Like this in B&W. Angles of different light sources conflict, though.

Great shot and all, but I really don't like where you placed the moon, that is if it is a layer, should of been on the top right, IMHO, it's just not a balanced shot, but nevertheless way better than mine, lol.
