Entry 2 of 26
   
 
Sun Chasing an Ascending Waxing Moon       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       2nd place, 195 points
1s, f6.3, ISO 125, 200mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: levels; decreased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; curves; filter - unsharp mask       Extra Info: This single image was taken on April 23rd, at 5:08 am when, surprisingly, the moon was rising during the "Blue Hour". This is a link for a Moonrise and Moonset Calculator that shows all the details for each day in April. Check out the 23rd. https://www.timeanddate.com/moon/

Additionally, the sky was cloudless. As Lefty Gomez once said, “I rather be lucky than good”.

    Absolutely beautiful colours, beautifully composed, and with the added bonus of that crescent moon. The reflection of the light in the water adds the perfect finishing touch. High in my favourites.

    Love the composition, the colours and the earthshine. What distracts me is the blotchy transition from orange to grey and grey to blue. Possibly from pp.

    I like your picture, but the 'blotchiness' of the sky is the only thing that I don't like. Still in my top ten but would even be higher with a smoother sky.

    Very nice. The solid areas display a blotchiness, perhaps a byproduct of over intensification of the colors. Possibly fixable by local smoothing adjustment.

    Dramatic moonrise. I'm guessing you've boosted the colours somewhat to achieve this result? I'm not sure about the banding and grain in the top half of the photo. I think it looks good with the top half removed. Less forced somehow. Yes you loose the moon but you wont miss it as you would never know it was there. I had a play and the shadows lighten up nicely on the lighthouse, giving some detail and interest to the focal point.

    Nice concept and composition, Like the foreground reflections. The red hue seems artificial to me, however.

    A lovely composition. The cranked up saturation works well for the challenge.

    The noise level in the upper half of the image is distracting. I'm almost tempted to crop this just above the tip of the building. Still quite a stunning shot, in my TT.

    Several stunningly beautiful entries in this challenge and this is one of them. I could spend a long time looking at this. Congratulations.

    in my favorites... right on theme with dramatic coloring.. nice composition with the moon... the blue part of the sky appears to be a bit grainy but still a very nice image.

    Very noisy but very beautiful. My top pick. It's a beautifully composed picture and the colours are fabulous. It's really neat that the moon is directly above the lighthouse and that it reflects a silvery trail intermingled with the red from the sunrise and a hint of darks from the lighthouse.
