A bird missing the moon
I was really surprised by the fine response I got for my last moonset photo, I decided to post another one, now featuring different elements. The sun was more up and the moon went more down when this bird found about the same view I've had of the beautiful surroundings. Clouds changed colour in the meantime and I tried to make as dark photo as possible and used ISO64 and f/8 in order to get more pronounced slhouettes of the chimneys when this bird perfectly placed itself. It really looks like it enjoys the colours and different elements in the sky and the ground.
P.S: Thanks to cessy for the naming of the title.

You show once again a lovely late evening picture, excellent with the bird and the moon, maybe sing the bird in the moon for the late visitors! Excellent contrasts in foreground, maybe a little bit noise in the sky, but I like this picture.
Have a nice day,

Hi Aleksandar, Great composition in soft tones. I like the silhouttes and the moon in this context. Good sharpness and frame.
TFS and have a nice week,

Wow Aleks, I like this one even better! That bird standing there is just magical. Great composition!

You've turned the moon into a beautiful pink pearl, set in the frame of the pink clouds and snow-topped mountain. You have outdone your previous photo. I like the bird silhouette and the title as well. Pat

Hi Alek, it looks like it is watching the sunset, I like the dark shadows and the framing where extreme ends have two of your main subjects.. well done

Your window view is truely beautiful while I just try to catch some nicer moments of suburban scene.
There's several elements that support each other: clouds, mountains, rooftop, chimneys and above all the bird and the moon.
I guess the zoom is near the limits of your equipment, but otherwise just superb!

Nice lovely warm light and I am very impressed how you captured the moon. Great framing with the silhouette of the bird. Great stuff.

This is another nice one in the balanced moon against something series, maybe even better because here no tilt way necessary, so it's natural, and the evening mood provided by the warm colors is another fine addition.
Have a nice day,

Eye-catching composition, the silhoutte of the bird and the chimney is beautiful. Well balanced lighting. The mood is poetic here, also the title. You have got a nice sky too. TFS.

Hi Aleksandar. This is a fine follow-up of a moon shot. I like how you kept the moon far from the center which is basically the focal point. The silhouettes are a good add.
