Like it a lot, you know I'm fond of unbirds and fake moons. My thoughts, as you probably would surmise without my saying so, would be to tone down the purples in the clouds, but we both know about me and the color purple. So...

Frank, an un-bird is another phrase I stole from Minnie, though she might have gotten it from someone else :) It means not a real bird; in this case made by specialty brushes.

Thank you, and Minnie, for your time and feedback!

Linda, this moon composite is much improvement from the past. Even though the moon is huge, it is realistic, IMO. Good choice adding the birds. They add to the interest and impact of the overall image.

Linda, I appreciate your noting this is a composite; I never photograph the moon because others -- e.g.,you -- so it so much better. And I would never get to be this big against the sky or trees. This is a playful image, something I might see in a young child's bedroom, to look at while she nods off to sleep: the moon will watch for her and the birds and trees will protect all night. Matt

As is often the case, your poetic descriptions of how an image makes you feel are heartwarming gifts. Many thanks, Matt!

I think I am with Paula on the purple - perhaps more atmosphere between us and the moon, and give it a haze, make the sky around the moon brighter. I like the composition, the birds, the line of trees - perhaps mix the birds with the trees a little, thicken up the flock - more birds, more birds.

Thanks so much for your suggestions, Piet! I had a small row of birds on that horizontal fence line briefly, but the idea to place some among the trees flying is more interesting. Had to chuckle about the "atmosphere, haze, brightness." The blue, the clouds and their color (up to a point) and the clarity of the moon...all that is real - from a single image overlayed onto the trees :) Shot at sunset with dry, clear air. But we can go for more "atmosphere" as related to mood, sure!
