Good shot. Shame about the slight softness in the mountains but it's a lovely capture.

Like this one alot. The composition could be better. Remember the rule of thirds. Good job though. -arnit

what a great use of negative space. i love the color of the sky, and that moon is stunning. The focus and clarity is awesome and your angle and framing/cropping are great as well. A very nice shot. Good luck in the challenge.

Great shot. Slightly more use of the rule of thirds would have gotten a point higher but a good 7 in my oppinion. It looks like the moon is hiding behind the rock.

Oh, if not for the fringes... or something. It hurts my eyes.

I like this a lot, but the composition is almost too foreground weighted. 9

Great shot. I'm evious of your lens. Jacko

A strong image - the kind I'd expect to see in a good travel guide book or in a magazine.
I like the way the shadows cause the snow to appear blue - echoeing the rich blue sky.
Beautiful composition.

Beautiful Shot, Vivid colors and love the way the moon seems to peak out around the edge of the rock. Greta Job!

This is beautiful. The "Blue Moon" photo submitted looks like it was cut out of this shot. I would have cropped off some of the bottom and top to bring the moon more into the line of the eyes. It would be a larger part of the photo therefore easier to spot at a glance, and as your subject that's where you want the eyes to go immediately. Otherwise great shot. PTL 8

Excellent composition. Technically, very well done. 9

The mountains are slightly blurry. Don't know if that is from the camera being out of focus or motion of the photog or compression issues. Still, great angle. Love the way it's poking out from behind the rock. muckpond

Nice shot. The rocks seem to be just sllliiightly out of focus. Too bad.

very nice... a little less mountain and a bit more sky might make it even better... hard to say... but nice effort.. 7

WOW..awesome shot with the moon in there...good job
12/03/2002 06:09:00 PM
Really cool photo, the way the shadowed edge of the moon lines up with the slope of the mountain. Very nice colors and composition as well. Overall image sharpness seems a bit low, I'm sure that can be corrected w/ software.
12/03/2002 03:39:00 PM
Beautiful shot! I especially like how the moon's edge lines up with the mountain top, very nice touch! Easy 10! Swash

My favorite for this week. Good luck.
12/02/2002 07:58:00 PM
very nice. lnede

you were definately in the right place at the right time for this photo....good job, it might be just a tad bit out of focus (or maybe its my monitor, i don't know). but nevertheless it is a good shot and i enjoy it.
12/02/2002 04:43:00 PM
Awesome! Only problem is the rocks like a little out of focus. Should have used Unsharp Mask. Nice tho.
12/02/2002 01:55:00 PM
I wish I could give u a "12" :)
12/02/2002 01:20:00 PM
Nice pic. I would have rated it higher, had the rocks been more sharp.I like your choice of composition. 6

Very nice. Color is great. Focus is good. I really like this picture. 9 tomlw

Beautiful shot! I love the moon framed against the rock.
12/02/2002 08:02:00 AM
very nice light and texture. Need a bit less sky maybe? This photo grabbed me.
12/02/2002 06:55:00 AM
Very nice!

I'm not voting this week and just flipping through the thumbnails. Wanted to say that i like this picture a lot. Good composition, good cropping. Love the orangy brown with the blue and the texture on the rocks.The focus seems a tad soft but i like that in this image as it adds to the overall mystique. I see some blotches in the sky, a little overcompressed maybe? I'll give this a 10 but it won't count so you'll loose that by the end of the week, sorry :) Journey (until dpc facilitates voting for us slow-modem folks i just can't find the time/energy anymore to vote)

Wow nice capture of the scene. The compositon is lovely. The moon is placed nicely against the rock peaks. The shot might have been a bit better with less sky showing though. Overall well done.
