Challenge: Dairy (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Olympus E-1
Location: West New York, NJ along Boulevard East.
Date: Aug 18, 2005
Aperture: f22
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1.6sec
Galleries: Landscape, Astrophotography
Date Uploaded: Aug 19, 2005

As we all know until 1969 we all thought the moon was made out of cheese, so there is the dairy connection. This was taken 8/18/2005 just as the moon rose above NYC behind the Citi Corp building at Park Ave in NYC. With its slicing slanted cap the building seems to be taking a slice out of the moon.

Now if you had taken that image from an angle at 60th Street (instead of of 55th/56th) the chunk missing from the moon would have looked much more authentic.

So this doesn't really meet the Challenge.

....Juuuuuust kidding.

Nice shot.

Great idea! If this were sharper, it would be fantastic!

Nice shot, great title but the focus is soft and it's veru noisy IMHO. 8

I'm distracted by the high grain. I know this is a problem with night photography, though.

This was intresting but
08/27/2005 01:52:45 PM
I love the idea! Completely out of the box!
I bet you're being voted down though... people can be so boring...
You got my 10 for sure.

I think this is a good enough play on words to qualify for the challenge. 6.

Skyline would look better as a silhouette, but good concept. Only one I've seen like this so far.

Nice shot of Citigroup Center. Trying to imagine which building this was taken from.

Great play on words!

I've never seen another picture like this one in this challenge. Very original! Nicely done. I like how your idea and how you decided to use the moon to represent cheese, and the building as something cutting the cheese.

08/25/2005 09:27:40 PM
what a great landscape...can't wait to find out what city this is. Even though dairy isn't really in the picture I love the way you made it fit the challenge. Great job!

Very interesting angle. No pun intended. :-) Very noisy... Neat image of something similar would have improved that. Maybe playing with the contrast and saturation to enhance the colors, etc. After the challenge, I would play with it a bit because this is a wall worthy image. You could probably even use a watercolor plug-in and make a really nice image that way.

This photo is very creative yet the building kind of distracts from the moon itself. Very creative though!!!!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 08:23:53 PM
The moon is beautiful, very creative title. But the buildings don't seem to match that well together.

08/25/2005 07:37:42 PM
Great!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 06:20:28 PM
Tad bit sharper and would of scored much higher!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 05:31:59 PM
ibe if the best as far as originality in my opinion. Yeah, a bit grainy, but I still like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 04:59:24 PM
This is so clever. I enjoy the thought put into this one. good stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 02:13:51 PM
other than the very bad pun in the title, what does this have to do w/ the contest?

i do understand where you're trying to go with it, but without the pun, it's just a picture of moonrise behind a skyscraper.

as for the photo itself, it's fairly well framed and executed, though it would have been nice had it been a bit sharper.
08/25/2005 01:19:10 PM
Really clever concept. Very difficult capture. This is sooo close to being a remarkable shot. Still, very high marks from me for ingenuity and technique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm going to defy the Challenge Police and give you a 7 on this. Except for the title, where is the milk or milk product? (I know, the moon is made of green cheese.) Thanks for a good picture.

Interesting interpretation of 'Dairy'. Nice moon too. The texture and depth of the buildings seem a bit odd though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:42:31 PM
Clever...very clever, and nice moon shot too. Point for ingenuity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:37:28 PM
You must have put a lot of thought into this. Just wish is were a little sharper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 08:41:28 PM
nicely done 6

08/24/2005 07:35:57 PM
Good moon shot, but hte buildings being less than tack sharp kinda distract from the moon.
08/24/2005 07:02:57 PM
The Moon is made of cheese. I give you an 8. This image is truly creative. Very nice perspective and originality. Thanks for the pleasure

Great shot, probably the wrong Challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 02:04:30 PM
Yeah, too bad this wasn't a full moon challenge. Very nice composition. Picture looks a bit fuzzy. I imagine that you are going to get lots of comments and deducted scores for not exactly meeting the challenge subject. 7
08/24/2005 01:15:42 PM
Interesting take on the challenge...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 01:15:32 PM
Nice picture, the brightness of the bottom of the building takes away from the moon though, maybe crop some out?
08/24/2005 12:11:09 PM
thats one huge moon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:33:02 AM
I see where you're going, but your image shouldn't need a title to get us to the topic. The image is also very grainy, and the forground too cluttered.
08/24/2005 09:19:42 AM
Oh gosh! Ya cracked me up...kudos for the "funny" and for being creative...bet you're getting slammed score wise though...nice image.

Moo?

Nice to see someone actually considered the moon. Nice shot. 7

Clever title. Wish the focus on the buildings were a bit more clear. Good composition.
