Hi Leslie, I don't know how you obtained this huge "full moon" scenery but the result is fascinating. Congratulations.

Well, it was certainly worth a repost!
This is like a poem in picture form!
The colours are amazing and I just love how the arch of the bridge appears to mimic the moon.
Although not easy to see in the soft light, the diagonal of the wall and the positioning of the trees shows a fine composition, too.
Have a good day,

Superb cold colors and amazing "symetry" between the full moon and the bridge arch. A good souvenir for Saint valentin!

Hi Leslie - I'm pleased to see this back again! The sky is superb and the moon quite incredible. I love the echo of the moon's shape under the bridge arch. A remarkable image. Very well done. Warm regards Rosemary

Already commented this one before that TE met troubles
I hope you had time to read it, where I said that I was taking the arch of the bridge as the reflection of the moon !!!
A splendid one

I thought it best to comment on this one before it disappeared again!
You have timed this shot extremely well regarding the right time of the "blue hour" so that the exposure for the Moon and the sky are not at all very different.
The composition is excellent and the round orb of the Moon is echoed by the semicircular arch of the bridge on the right. Fabulous colours, perfect exposure and stunning detail and sharpness - I can even see lots of details in the darkest shadows.
This must have been taken at pretty near the long end of your 80-400mm lens because I seem to remember that the Moon only subtends an angle of about ½° to the Earth and you must have used a very long focal length to get the Moon looking as big as this!

glad you re-posted this fine shot. It is a surreal image of the rising full moon but one of distinct beauty and impact. The moon was huge a few nights ago and I did toy with going out and capturing it rising but it was -6C and I thought better of it. Glorious image!
Have a great week - Brian.

This is so fantastic and dreamy photograph, so it's interesting and impressive to see the moon in blue sky and the sky dyed to red on horizon. And, lonely trees and brige with silhouette in this side draw out a good atmosphere in this image. It's good at color tone, too.

a very well composed impression of this fascinating moon where the ancient bridge also plays an important role. Excellent management of the light and very beautiful colors. This image is food for meditation!

Good color tones, sharpness, clarity, wonderful POV and DOF too. Perfectly well done. I like it.
All the best,

this is a wonderful image, I like the composition with the moon and the fantastic tones and colors you captured, well done,

great night shot with the huge moon to be in the blue sky and over the Ivy bridge.I like the colour tints of the sky, as the successful capture of the moon that is almost the same size with the arch of the bridge, creating a great balance in the image.
ourania (51079) 2012-02-13 10:03
this is a wonderful impression with lovely harmonious colours, an exquisite blue enfolding everything. The glorious moon dominates the picture but the bridge and the trees are also important as shapes and patterns before this amazing sky. I like the view under the bridge, through the delicate branches. You have created a lovely romantic atmosphere!
All the best,

two moons ... How about this title
So I associated the miniature
Well spotted ... and acquired a beautiful climate
dkmurphys (64607) 2012-02-13 10:39
Very mysterious scene. I like the moment of full moon and the pink lower sky. Great work, have a nice evening.
Gigidusud (21247) 2012-02-13 13:10
Fantastic shot with impressive moon and nice colors!
Thanks for sharing.
brianmcc (6221) 2012-02-13 13:26
this is an amazing picture. so well composed and executed. the colours are fantastic. incredible detail in the moon which looks wonderful behind the bare branches of the trees.
stellar_girl (302) 2012-02-13 13:42
I don't like pink unless it's the colour of the sky. Here it complements just great with blue and violet. Excellent view with stunning colours and outlines of the trees. The size of the moon is impressive. Well done!
divail (8334) 2012-02-13 19:26
Les couleurs sont vraiment fantastiques. La vignette attire l'attention tout de suite. La lune reprend l'arche du pont, c'est vraiment bien pensé, et les dimensions semblent les mêmes. C'est de l'excellent travail. Bravo.
ciakgiak (30433) 2012-02-14 8:15

What a romantic scene, the moon is a great presence.
You composed a magical image,

annjackman (21903) 2012-02-16 7:58
The colours are really amazing. The full moon adds a lot to the very well balanced composition as does the arch of the bridge. I am looking for the werewolf but can't see it! Yor framing is perfect - a glorious image.
Best wishes, Ann

une photo irréelle par ses couleurs, magique...
la pleine lune qui semble ici vouloir exprimer toute l'inquiétude qu'elle évoque.
Un cadrage parfait pour une capture top des lumières ambiantes.
patdeph (35748) 2012-02-22 10:52
the colors are wonderful, and with this incredible and enormous Moon, this is really magical.Splendid!

Hi Les, Not sure how I missed this one.. It is very special with the two spherical shapes balancing the image- tremendous coulours and tones. well posted. Ric
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4814) 2012-03-20 19:28
Incredible! Love the vibrant colors, the silhouette especially that perfect circle moon! The tones are very nice, excellent clarity and sharpness. How on earth did you capture that moon? Photomontage? Was the moon captured from a different frame? Anyway, this is truly captivating! Great work!
delpeoples (59774) 2012-10-09 19:54
How did this disappear? Is TE having a Bermuda Triangle moment? Wow, look at that moon, it seems in perfect symphony with the round shape of the old stone bridge. The colours are otherworkdly, but so very pretty and work well with the sillhouettes. Great job.
