    Thanks,
    David

    These look nice to me.

    I like the first one as it is. Is that spec the moon, or a print defect? Hard to tell in the scan.

    All I'd say about the second one is more contrast and maybe move the subject up and to the right a bit.

    What equipment are you using?

    I really like that second shot but would agree about the positioning. Maybe you have an original which you can crop slightly differently?

    Out of the two of these the second definitely has the most potential and brings more interest. This is because it is a more unique picture that the first.

    I would try contrast and lighting changes, just something to make the subject stand out a little more.

    Thanks everybody for your comments :)
    In the first picture, it is the moon. Somehow the resizing and compression of the image made it even smaller than what it was already !

    I followed your ideas on the second one, and i came up with this new image. Is it better now ?

    The camera, I am using, is a Canon Digital Rebel.

    nice one, mate! I like the new cropping & I love the 'coppery' tone of the pic, I think its great! Care to share the film/how you took the shot?

    And by the way, welcome to the forum ;)
