    Made this photo of tonight's sunset. Moon was spectacular. Frigged it up a tad by shooting at ISO200, resulting in the tiniest bit of noise. :| By the time I realized it and got set at 100, lighting had changed.

    Those are beautiful shots man :) I love the first one. The noise is so minimal, but if you were going to get a big print of it, you might consider running a gaussian blur on it, and masking out the moon to keep it sharp. I also think you might consider cloning out the very faint part of the moon and just leaving the crescent.

    Beautiful shots though, for sure :)

    I kinda like the faint part. It's a very simple shot, but it sure works.

    Good use of dead space. The first one also has the nice gradient to help add some character. It really works well for that picture. Nice work, Shark.

    Yeah!!! The gradation in the first shot is just amazing. I would try and make a very very large print of both!
