Re: Another Chair

Woah! Talk about an optical illusion too... Nicely spotted, wonderfully rendered and, as always, well presented.

Re: A pM Retreat? Share Your Thoughts

Matt is on the mends from his recent successful bout with the big C. If he is up to it, I would love to drive up for the weekend a...

Good luck. I checked different sites last night and there were no good locations for early shots of the moon over water anywhere nearby. Will give it another go tonight. Matt
Gray skies made for a lousy attempt tonight. I'll have another go at it the next full moon.

Re: At the Rodeo

Amazing composition. Love the framing of the cowboy in the rope and the rays from the sun. In one word... superb.

Re: Moonlit pier

Duck, Go back out right now. The sky is clear. The moon awaits. And so does pM. Matt Believe me, I had all intentions. I had to drop my jeep off at the garage earlier today. I'm so upset with this. I'll try tomorrow night and hope there is still enough of a full moon to be worth the trip. Part of t...

Re: Moonlit pier

Duck; You got it wrong. I remember that night, I was standing next to you. That moon was precisely in that position as shown in photo. Have fun; Thanks for backing me up, Ed. I didn't want to mislead anyone here with this image. Out in Facebookland, I could care less what they think, but here I wan...

Excellent use of foreground/middle and distance.
Was shot a pano or cropped?
Kind regards;
Thanks. This was slightly cropped to a 16:9 aspect ratio. The pier is as shot. The moon was higher in the sky so I repositioned it in Photoshop.
