Ok, call this a half court "Hail Mary" shot. :P

NO time to shoot anything today. Had an after school event (indoors) that really wasn't appropriate for using the camera.

We did however, spend 15 minutes on the school playground before going in. Saw this juxtaposition and thought it was kind of fun. So, here it is. Day 18 officially covered. :)

I did consider setting something up in the light tent, but just didn't have the energy for it tonight.

Good eye. Too bad the moon wasn't larger, but still the composition is a nice one.

Nice shot. Nice lighting & composition. Moon isn't large enough to be an impact in the photo, but makes a nice side light. Nicely positioned though.

I really like the composition! The border works well with it too.

Nice. I like the simplicity here and the sharp focus. The moon is great too. Nice work!

Yes you did. Great idea but it doesn't quite work. The backboard controls the image. Perhaps if you did a very tight crop with just a little bit of backboard and basket with the moon being more prominent. JMO.

Simple but good use of time. Nice tones and crisp.
