Selenophobia (fear of the moon)       ©2014 babysister
Panasonic DMC-GX7       8th place, 97 points
1/20s, f4, ISO 3200, 200mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped and small clone. Minimal increase in brightness and contrast. Inserted witch.       Extra Info: This was taken while an eclipse was in process. Under the light cloud it is in the bottom right hand corner of the moon.

Like many other phobias, selenophobia originates from painful experiences during childhood.The Full moon is the most feared phase of the moon, because full moons are believed to cause people to commit more crimes, including murder, breaking into homes, and robbery.

There are mythological reasons for the development of selenophobia, including believing that the moon is inhabited by evil creatures, as well as the belief that the full moon has the ability to transform people into werewolves.

    Yes Mepo. And I'm getting a new broom too! A modern one with an electric motor.

    I like this one. The witch is funny, but I think it detracts from a well done photo of the moon, clouds, and foliage. Love the blue! In my favs.

    Nice idea, though to me the whimsical witch blunts the suggestion of fear. Would be great on a Halloween party invitation.

    A very moody photo of the moon. Love the graininess caused by the high ISO. Too bad the eclipse wasn't more apparent, as that is such a primal fear.
