Love this shot. "Moonlight, Longs, Colorado" :wink:


I love the sense of balance in the composition - just enough tension and just enough resolution to keep it interesting. The sky above the moon seems like the perfect amount to work with the overall composition. The summit itself is near the lower left third/third power point. Beautiful.

I love the way B&W both simplifies matters (down to composition/shapes/sizes/balance) and rather complicates issues of incorrect composition and exposure. Often, desaturating an image helps find the correct adjustments - when it can then actually go back to color if desired.

Beautiful shot, a real prize. Your experience at this is evident! Thanks for posting.


(Speaking of experience... where's Kane?)

Damn...great shots here. You all inspired me to try B&W on a few of my shots (shown somewhat low res thanks to Picasa). I don't often play with B&W or sepia.

Black and white shots are tricky. While I've always been preferential to enjoying the colors of the world, here is what I can contribute.
