Took this one in the evening in frost and wind. made it little more triky since i was using a tripod for 30 sec..

pretty happy with the result though. The light on the left is from the skiing area in the mountains and on the right the moon shines.

You can also see on some places where its kind of blurry but thats because of the snow that was blowing all the time in the wind. Guess i will get some minus point for that even if i like the center focus myself:/

Very surreal. Beautiful colors, great composition - having it centred adds rather than takes away from your image. Well Done!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cartoonesc colors. The centered composition works here because of the equilibrium of lights on both sides. Outstanding lanscape. Congrats!

Excellent use of mixed lighting with the city far off to the right to balance out the moon. congrats on your red ribbon, well deserved.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The center focus did catch my attention, but like I said, the image wouldn't have had such a strong unbiased tension if the structure were left or right of center. Don't beat yourself over the decision, it definitely worked.

Wow this is phenomenal, congrats on the ribbon, very nicely executed, really neat outcome, i also would like to have an off centered composition as was mentioned before, but nonetheless very well deserved ribbon, top notch shot, adding to faves

Can't bbelieve you got so many sticklers for the rules objecting to the centre composition of the main object.

To me, this is very well balanced, with the yellow light of the ski resort and the white light of the moon being focus points in their own right. The hut in the centre helps to balance these two out very well.

An excellent capture - You should be proud!

Congratulations on the Red. The building in the middle of nowhere seems to almost be surreal.

I have got to see Iceland before I pass on. It must be incredible.

First impression: I wish the building was on the thirds and not centered.

Stunning image. Lots of tension here, which I always like. Trying to think of someway to put the building out of the center of the image, but that would take away the effect. White on the right is a bit overwhelming, but I think it actually adds to the effect here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2007 03:51:13 PM
That moon is intense! It's casting a shadow from the house. A little trick I've learned for shots like these is to wave your hand in front of the right part of the lens. It will block some of the light from the moon, but still give it a nice transition, as opposed to just keeping your hand there, which would cause a harsh line.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2007 02:46:23 PM
You captured the bareness of the scene so well, congrats! I'm giving it a good score but would have been higher if you either cropped the moon out or used a cutout to reduce the exposure time on it. Regardless, this is one of my favorites of the challenge.
