The focus is too soft on the trees, try resting the camera against something.

This is just too soft really. It's a nice idea but the yellow hue on the branches quite 'pollutes' the image. Perhaps mono would have been better and a steadier surface or less wind?

I think finding somewhere which had no streetlights would have allowed the moon to light the branches and create more mood.

Blurry. Too busy.

Such a dramatic, interesting shot! I do wish it were in focus--the trees, at least. But the light on the twisted branches is sooooo nice.

unusual and effective
Nice use of the moon

I like the way the moon looks in the background, surrounded by trees, but the tree branches are a little too clear. They seem to take away from the mystery of it. Perhaps if there was more going on behind the initial branches. I guess you might say that I'd like to see more of the night sky hidden. Good shot overall, incredibly bright moon.

This was just a little too busy and little too blurry for my taste. The lighting really does help bring out the features of the tree.

Nice idea but not quite in focus, and the moon is a bit overexposed.

You got some blur on this shot. Need a tripod or a more steady tripod.

image looks out of focus, or maybe you focused on the moon and the exposure was a bit too long and over exposed the moon so you cant tell what should be infocus

To blurry for me..

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure lighting composition good, focus looks off.

Personal: As tempting as it was to me to take a shot like this, I chose not to because I thought it wouldn't be very compelling- and that's how I feel about this image. This is compounded by the lack of focus. I'd love to see some more imagination!

My vote: 3

too blurry, would have been better with focus made on something

Wonderful title and composition. The focus is just soft.

A little fuzzy, and it seems like the moon thought the trees has been done.

a little blurry in my eyes.

Great idea here - lots going on with the tree that doesn't pull my eye toward the subject. I'd like to see the moon a bit crisper and less "hot"

great idea here but it's a bit too soft overall...
