Terrific capture. You don't see the planets aligning like that to often and you cought them just right. Glad to see that you are out and about again for this early morning sunrise.

I like the simplicity of this one Robert. It just feels right.

Nice one R. I had the same colours going but in the morning. I over saturated the colours though, and paid for it with a 5.4 score.

Good to see you got to view them close together like that. I had to wait until Tuesday but at least I saw them.

I like the way you added interest by including the ground cover in the shot, I am not sure how often the moon lines up like that but it was an awesome sight. Good capture

Fantastic - I love the way you have included the Moon, Venus and Jupiter alignment in this shot - and with an interesting foreground too. I hope you ribbon.

Great clarity on the moon and planets - like that there is some interest in the foreground as well.

Ooh, you captured it! It was all clouds and I didn't even get to see it :( Fantastic colors and nice composition, also a goot brightness on the celestial objects.
