Wow! Thank-you everyone for the Great comments! I'll have to admit that this is my first entry as a Mac user! I found a 27inch iMac under a tree in December and have been converting from PC for a few weeks now . I really notice the difference and am feeling very grateful right now.
This Moon shot is taken in Banff National Park in Alberta Canada at the edge of Cascade Mountain, its one of many shots that morning. It was very windy and cloudy so the moon would go from total obscurity in clouds to full brilliance in a matter of 30 seconds. so tripod adjustments are nearly constant as the moon itself moves quite quickly as well. Thank-you all again

Congratulations on your very well deserved win. I knew mine would place behind this one of yours. Superb capture of the moon on the ridge. It's just right!

Beautiful capture. I can't believe how big it is. The clouds are really cool too.

The silhouette of the trees in front of the moon is beautiful.

Nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2010 05:30:14 PM
Nice image. The brown / gray towns in the fog / clouds are an interesting contrast with the sharp black silhouette. Clear picture of the moon. Would have been nice if the sky were less noisy -- you can see it even in this small size.

To me, Very good

Very nice image. Nice detail in the moon which is difficult to balance out. 8

My fave so far. Perfect moon shot, exquisite detail on the trees, terrific "aura" around the moon and the colors of the clouds/mist. Not voting.

great night landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2010 07:39:13 AM
Love having some foreground in the shot and the mountain trees silhouette, with cloudy sky, works extremely well.

Beautiful use of diagonal light. This would make a killer book jacket.

This is my favorite so far in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Reminds me of the movie ET for some reason with the tree silhouettes against the moon. Good focus from foreground to the Moon, and I like the muted colors of the sky and clouds. I think I would have cropped along the right side more around the first major dip in the trees to bring the Moon a big more off the center area (not that it's centered, but close) and maybe crop up to the base of the first group of trees on the bottom edge. These are just my thoughts, but I feel you will do well here. 8
