Taken on my birthday, it was a really beautiful afternoon. This looks so much better big, but I couldn't resist entering it into the challenge because its once in a lifetime that you get to see the moon rising over Imbabura (an inactive volcano), its usually covered by clouds this time of day.

Very well done - to pick up the moon in a wide angle and make it make a difference is very clever.

border detracts from this fine capture.

Liking that dark line of shadow that really makes the edge of that hill stand out so well. Also the positioning of hte moon in that little dip shape works well. And of course, the light of the setting sun whilst the sky is still blue.

I absolutely love the simplicity in this shot, and I really think the shadow works for you here. Well done.
