I've been there, a beatiful place. I actually stayed in the hotel right there. Unfortunately I didn't have my interest in photography as I do now. I would love to go back someday. Beautiful picture!

Just beautiful. One of my top picks.
09/12/2004 10:17:30 PM
Beautiful. Certainly very enticing for the reader to come and visit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2004 09:00:33 PM
Nice picture, but the moon doesn't look real, and is distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2004 03:25:47 PM
Nice subject and well composed but the image looks over treated with the shadow/hilight filter - giving rise to the familar halo. It's a shame because it looks like an interesting place. Perhaps you were just too late for the sun.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2004 10:16:22 AM
A very nice photo which would have been a little nice with more light on the vegetation
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2004 07:49:38 AM
You've captured the light here! The moon is great element giving interest to the left side and a balance to the mountain background. THe light on the church spotlights it. I think your title blends the elements together. One of my ribbon picks this challenge BOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/11/2004 12:40:02 PM
neat image, but the halo in the sky is a bit distracting

returning for comments

A most charming and lovely colored image with great foreground and background. Very good right heavy composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2004 10:42:44 AM
I love this picture! I just got back from Estes Park last week, and got some great shot of this striking Church at St. Malo, but none at this time of day, which makes it even more striking! I love that area so much! You certainly have lots of choices for travel pictures in that area, don't you? Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2004 12:20:24 AM
Gorgeous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2004 08:03:14 PM
Neat juxtaposition of sunset and moonrise - or vice versey. Love the image. Would it have been possible to dodge the left and right of the building to get more of the lighting effect? Might not be necessary, but could have shown even more detail in the building. Anyway, still love the image. Congratulations.

One of my top 3 and probably the best. Excellent timing with your lighting. Great composition. I wish I could give it higher than a 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2004 01:33:06 PM
I really like it, it's definately a wall hanger :) Great composition, and I particularly like the sliver of sunlight shining on the building.

09/06/2004 01:49:10 AM
the dodging is a little evident. however, it really helps even so.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2004 12:22:43 AM
Excellent but the halos around the house, tree and background are distracting
