A very moody and atmospheric image - I like the way you have put this together - fine viewing.

I like it Kris, but just looks a little too much. With a full moon (which looks a little large in the pic) the stars nearest to it just wouldn't be visable.

Still like it enough to vote

Really beautiful, and like all stunning photos, you can look at it over and over again. Well Done!

Cheers folks. Smile

Point taken Nick.

Due to the the long lens and the fact that it had not long risen, it was pretty big. As to the brightness of the stars - that's why you can only see a couple of bright ones close to the moon, and that area of the sky was one of the exposures. Saying that, a bit of artistic licence was used in the exposures used for the blend - I shot 12 in all. Wink

I actually like it a lot Kris, it was shortlisted. I like the concept, and is something I may try in future.
