    an icicle. (handy dandy fish tank light lit up the icicle, white balance set to floresent (sp?) and some editing in picasa..looked pretty cool.

    i like the first one, but if the actual outline of the moon were more distinct and not just a ball of white light i would like it more i think. it could still have the glow around it i just think it would be better to see the detail of the moon. and i would have like to see a tad more branches around the moon and less black space, i find myself looking at the black more. just how im seeing it in my head, not sure if im masking sense hahhaha

    Well ot was a cloudy night....and I just wanted to screw with my tripod. Yes i agree it should be more distint...but then I wouldnt have as much of a glow..

    well, I used a flash in the picture to captureas much of the brnches as I could. I used the auto flash, a fill flash and red eye. the fill flash.Each with each flash, the branches got darker. The I got lazy and used the auto clour and t toaly got rid of the branches (oh and if you have a flat screen moniter...it hs if your looking straight on at it to see the branches)
    So out of the 3 pictures I kept the medium strength flash for the biggest glow and still have visible branches.
    In imrovin the color of the moon (to mowhite then a brown) I lost some of the branches. If I get the time, Ill re-edit it and see if I can add a wee bit of fill light to it and forget about using the auto color.
