I would like to take this personal time to thank you for the great comments you left on my Once in a Blue Moon entry [the Edge of Night]. I have enjoyed this site a great deal and am honored to have finally captured a widely appreicated image as I appreciate the opportunities of the DPC site.

Thank you again and best of efforts to you too,

John

Could see this as a poster. Nice shot. Possibly an off-center subject would make it even more interesting.

The only moon shot I like, I wish the moon wasnt a white circle and had more detail. Picture evokes a great sense of mood. 9

THIS is a WOW picture! An undisputed 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cool picture. The placement of the moon between the outcroppings is great. Too bad the moon is so overexposed, it would be interesting to see some texture on it, but I know how difficult (impossible) it is to get both the moon and the subjects properly exposed at night. I like the border. It's tasteful and adds to the picture.

08/03/2004 12:30:07 PM
Yes! Now this look like something that i would buy. i like they way how you composite this image and add blue to it (if you did) This is someting that would definate sells and i hope its on DPC Prints. Good Job 10

Wow, this is strikingly beautiful. I'll be very curious to see the photo details here as to how this effect was achieved. I think this one will score well. Congrats. 8.

This is one of the best IMO, but maybe the moon is too white.
