The Moon Turns Its Clockwork Dream by catch---22 The Moon Turns Its Clockwork Dream by catch---22
The moon turns its clockwork dream.
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes.
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire.

In a general sense, I find this photo both beautiful and interesting. Obviously, capturing such a gorgeous full moon is great work, but, on top of that, the detail and color that you were able to preserve here is amazing, especially when considering the low light setting, the amount of zoom, and the need for iso adjustment. You should truly be proud of this! In comparing this to your other photography, it becomes evident that you are a seasoned and talented photographer. The only thing I will mention about this photo is that, to me, because of the placement of the moon, I feel like the overall photo lacks a little focus. What I mean is that there is a lot of open, black space with no stars or color to draw further interest around the photo. Thus, it is a large photo containing an non-centered moon on a simple black background. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing because, honestly, I like it not centered, as well. In the grand scheme of things, though, this is a wonderful piece of work, and I can only hope to get there with my photography someday! Nice job! :)

Neruda has scrambled your brains like a soft omlette. Which is allright! My brains were scrambled in much the same way, my friend :clap:

Really love how the moon seems to glow with an inner light. Excellent details, Dennis :thumbsup:

Wonderful clear shot Dennis,......at 300mm you still had some zoom to go, so I am guessing
you pulled back to get a better frame and make bigger back ground..., which goes perfectly with
the lovely poem ღ..........:love:
if I do that I find I can't get the moon in good focus like this....it kind of fades....so something to work towards...:)

Really? I am doing something wrong then if you captured it at that distance..
I have lots of moon shots in sta.sh in focus but alot of them are all in full frame
I am going to have to play with the others.....
What part of PS do you use to bring out the detail on yours Dennis? :):rose:

I don't use PS. I use lightroom.

...and I use quite a few things adjusted very minutely :)
