    I'm just curious if this is an appealing shot? I really like it, but then again I'm biased lol!

    This picture is completely un altered other than a small crop and border added in photo bucket, this is a moon shot btw.

    I like it. I think it could use with a bit closer crop or a bit more fill in the silhouettes-- right now there's a bit too much black space for my taste.

    YES! I think its framed nicely, though my knowledge of composition is little to none.

    I find it hard to believe this is the moon. It is a very cool way of looking at the moon, IMO. I thought it was the sun until I read what you wrote! :)

    I agree, too much black. I did a 30 second exposure, but............:D

    Thank you, the moon had a really nice orangey haze so I was pleased that the photos actually showed that.

    I did try changing the iso to 1600 but then the moon lost its oranangyness (lol, I know, not a real word).

    Works for me, maybe a tighter crop? Nah, keep it as is.

    I like the crop. I don't believe in having to fill the frame with detail; the black speaks a thousand words in this piece. Leave it as is :)

    Great shot.

    Thank you :). I go back and forth as to whether or not I like this photo lol.

    I'm just not sure why I don't like it though.

    Anyone else having any critiques? I even want to hear from those that don't like it, and why, maybe you can add some insight as to why I don't like it lol.

    I'd say get rid of the border. More silhouette would've been nice.
