I am in great company :)

Thanks for my wife in helping me keep it simple. I had complicated plans, multiple eagles pulling the moon closer using strings. Glad I didn't try that.

Shot was planned while driving back from work, my long commute is helping me pre-visualize a lot of my ideas. As I planned, I took pictures during the way.

Pulled on the side of road for eagle and cloud shot.
Picked up my wife and pulled over to shoot the building.
Got back home and stepped out on the balcony to shoot the moon.

Whole day of getting it right in photoshop, and it paid off with my PB :)

Thank you everyone for comments & the high score!

Great pic ... I think I recall seeing Crouse College look just like that after a few too many on M Street back in the day.

Great choice of colors, it all looks very natural. Congratulations on your ribbon!
Would have also worked with a bat for a much creepier atmosphere ;-)

eye-catching. I thought about doing an E.T. style silhouette across the moon - I'm surprised nobody else did.
good luck - this is great
