Last night's planetary alignment was a bust for me, the haze in our air making it impossible to see anything other than Venus and the moon. So... The moon it was:

The colours are natural! No colour specific PP was done to these photos.

Nice shots. Only thing I'm not sure about is if you could get a crop about half way between th two you have. The first one to me doesn't seem to show quite enough of the mountains, but I get distracted by the lights in the bottom of the second one. JMHO.

Thanks Kip.

I'll have to have a look at the orange one to see what I can do when I get back from a short trip out of town

A little noise reduction some contrast and the 2nd shot is a winner!
Very nice.

I'd crop the black foreground out of the bottom image, leaving the water...just rely on the pastel layers to pull you into the frame.

Very nice.

Hmmm.. Already DID boost contrast and hit it with NR :( Perhaps I need to be a bit more agressive?

I like it. I tried it at home and it works. I was trying to get the feeling of the moon over the city... not long enough to get enough lights vs. the moon. Who'd a thunk I needed an ND grad ;)

People all seem to like #2 better. I'm unhappy that I had such a tight crop on the 1st. The first had a lot of empty sky above the moon.

Amazing what having 300 forest fires burning in your province can do for your sunsets :lol:

Thank you. It's so rare that we get a nice crescent setting with the evening glow and it ISN'T CLOUDY!!! Yipee!!!!

Cheers.
