I really like the silhoutte here. Great colors for a change. When ever you see a palm tree and a see, you think of red/yellow/orange tone. I really like the bule tones here. Good Luck.

Absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful color, moon path, and light peeping through the palm.

Reminds me of a postcard or advertisement from a travel mag. Very pretty.

I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1115 images, I gave 93 of them an 8. Your image was one of those 93, placing you well within the top 10% for this challenge.

With the amount of sunset pics on show in this challenge, it is refreshing to see a shot of the moon instead. Nicely positioned, and the saturation of the blue is lovely. Would look nice on my wall :-)

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

tilted horizon hurts here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 06:40:13 PM
very nice, i would crop out the ocean
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:35:28 PM
Nice POV, good job with the silhouette. Correcting the tilted horizon would make it a lot better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:06:29 PM
I really like the deep blues in this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:06:11 PM
really fine image, the blue sets the mood, and you placed the moon right on
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:28:52 AM

Lovely backlight and reflection.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:11:02 AM
moonlit silhoutte, interesing but not too much wow factor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:58:33 PM
Very nice shade of blu sky, I bet this look very nice printed large.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:55:21 PM
I like the moon behind the tree, that looks really neat. I would straighten the horizon and crop some off the left side, I think that would make this a stronger photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 08:00:27 PM
Beautiful, but why the unlevel horizon?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:50:43 PM
Love the blue of the sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:07:31 AM
wow...so bright for a night shot...horizon need straightening just a tad
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:05:40 PM
I love this shot. Maybe the bottom could be more straight, but this doesn't take any points from you in my opinion. Great photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:07:13 PM
Love the use of the tree to accent the moon this way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:32:40 PM
Terrific! The way you caught the moon behind the tree is very interesting and placing it at the top of the frame with just a hint of context at the bottom works great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:12:02 PM
Wonderful use of natural light. The simplicity of this image really speaks to me.

great composition, the glow of the moon behind the tree is cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:35:08 AM
When it loaded, I could only see to the top of the cloud line and I was impressed. Then I scrolled down and saw the water... slightly less impressed. Still beautiful though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:03:55 AM
Great placement of the moon.

[strike]it's great how you lined up the palm tree with the moon, nice moonlight and beautiful blue sky

looks like a poster for a tropical island tree and moon and if life was perfect there would have been a large white yacht gliding by!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:28:13 PM
love the tones and light of the moon reflection..horizon needs a bit of straightening...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:04:44 PM
Wonderful composition. I like the white on the water. It seems like the horizon is not level, though (tilts down to left). Is it me?

Wish the horizon was straight! Otherwise lovely.

Funny I tried the same shot last mounth in spain, but it did not turn out this good - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:23:13 PM
Nice silhouette of the palm tree. The ocean appears to be a bit tilted, but the seawall looks straight so it must be an optical illusion unless the wall is slightly tilted. I like how the blue vignettes towards the corners.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:28:35 PM
I wish your horizon was level - it is dipping on the left
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:17:32 PM
Dang! This is a sweet shot. Well exposed, nice subject, etc... Do wish you'd have taken a few seconds to straighten the horizon. :-/ Overall, still a nice photo. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:30:45 AM
Nice angle to get the moon right behind the palm fronds and very pretty blues. Composition feels a little off; I'd crop more off the right and add more on the left if I had it, to put the top of the tree more on a rule of thirds line. And much as I hate to say this the horizon looks slightly tilted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:15:02 AM
So clever, well done. I love the slant on the palm, that is a great feature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:33:55 AM
nite shots are very cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:57:06 AM
Very nice silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:55:41 AM
The slight tilt is noticeable and I see some dinging for it. On the whole though, a nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:16:35 AM
The horizon is a little tilted but I love the sun behind the tree.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:34:53 AM
Love the effect around the top of the tree and the background color. The horizon line is a little off putting but still a nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:52:51 AM
Nice back lighting on the tree top there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:48:37 AM
Really cool glow around the palm in this.
