Garden City Pier and Moon

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by CliffB, Jul 19, 2008.

  1. This is a shot of the pier at Garden City Beach, South Carolina. I added the moon as an afterthought. The actual moon was at the same height in the sky, but was out of frame to the left. So, I decided to move the moon to where I rather it had been. What do you think? Does the moon add or detract from the image?

    D70, 10 sec. @ f/20, Sigma 17-70 @ 29mm, polarizer.

  2. Hi Cliff,
    It's a lovely shot because of the colors, angles and water texture. The moon would have been a happy cooincidence, but neither makes nor breaks the image.

    I think that it is a really nice picture
  4. Beautiful Cliff, you made the moon fit right in nicely. Though before I read you added it I was wondering if you had, it looks a bit to big.
  5. Thank you, Fred , Theresa and Douglas.
  6. That's an awesome shot, Cliff! I love the moon in the pic.

    Very nice, to me the moon is the icing on the cake that really makes the image.

    Beautiful capture! Was it really as light outside as the photo depicts?
  13. Fantastic image Cliff!

    I can't view the exif. How long was the exposure?

  14. D70, 10 sec. @ f/20, Sigma 17-70 @ 29mm, polarizer.
  15. Good..

    It seems to balance the shot for me Cliff.

    I like it a lot.


  16. This might be slightly brighter than reality; but, if so, by very little. This was taken only moments before sunrise; so, there was quite a bit of light.
  17. Thank you, Don.
