    I need your opinions. I can't decide which of these photos is better. I really like both for different reasons. At this point, I have only resized them so they were huge; I've done no PSing. Before I play with either, I wanted your opinions which was better.

    Thanks for looking:

    Depends on your audience. I have a hard time saying one image is 'better' than another. The first one looks like a National Geographic picture, the second is more personal, with more creativity than the first. So, here's your 'nonanswer,' just a reaction. Hope that it's helpful.

    The second is absolutely fascinating in how clearly you can see the unlit part of the moon. That makes it a real wow-er. (Uh, what a word ;)). I think I therefore like the second better, even though the first looks "more correctly exposed"... but sometimes something very correct is not necessarily more effective ;).

    I like them both. For me the second shot is amazing, but I like the first better. I cannot even give you a reason. Just a feel.

    I prefer the light on the moon in the first. The second is a bit too overexposed. Ifyou could somehow meet in the middle exposure-wise....

    I love them both. The first one is simple and clear, which is really nice, and the 2nd is more detailed, I love the branches! (it would be better without the full moon's circle, though)
    Awesome!

    the first image is much more moody and rich.

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate your comments.

    I think for fun I might put the moon in the first shot into the second one and see how that works...to meet in the middle :)

    If I really do it, I'll post the results (no matter how bad it turns out).
