Super Moon Joins the Skyscrapers

We spent New Years Day hanging out in our condo with Junko and Bill, bringing in the new year in a quiet and comfy way. Junko and I had our tripods set up ready for the moon rise, which was SO quick between the skyscrapers. Both set up in the same spot, her Canon, my Nikon, both using telephotos, and both with similar shots -- but interesting to see how different the tones ended up being. Hers is at: http://365project.org/jyokota/365/2018-01-01
I DO like it -- I like the gentle tones and the uber-classy feel to this city-moon shot.

Stunning shot Taffy

Love that we can see the moon through the windows of the buildings!

Looks like the moon is a bit shy to come out and share its beauty, a subtle yet intriguing shot

Incredible picture.

Excellent and I love how you captured the moon in it.

A stunning moon/cityscape composition

Fabulous perspective. From someone who lives very much in the 'country' in England I love sights like these.

Beautifully executed and so sharp.

Wow awesome moon shot!

Great capture of the moon between the buildings

The different tones give such a different feel. In Junko's image I felt as if the moon had triumphed over the steel and metal but I don't get that impression with these tones. Maybe it's just that also appears more distant. In both though - what an amazing setting for a full moon! Wonderful.

Superb image...love the contrast of the round moon and straight lines of the buildings...super composition
posted January 3rd, 2018  
I like the way the moon dominates this picture putting the lights of the buildings in their place, and ofcourse the view through the building to the moon behind. Lovely shot - you didn't need the gym floor after all.
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Neat to compare the 2 shots. Both are great. Like the orange moon contrasting with dark buildings and just peeking out.
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Fantastic shot
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Fabulous capture!
posted January 3rd, 2018  
I rarely think of the moon as part of a city scape, so this is really a striking image.
posted January 3rd, 2018  
@redandwhite That's interesting, as to me a moon shot is 'over the buildings' unless it's summer and I'm living on Beaver Island. Then the moon shot is with a tree or the lake in the foreground. But I hadn't thought about these very different expectations.

This is fabulous, the view between the skyscrapers gives such an interesting sense of scale to the supermoon. Great work to capture this shot, shooting the moon is so difficult in urban areas.
posted January 3rd, 2018  
yes, inside is best to shoot the moon these days. super capture, miss taffy. aces!
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Great, sneaky shot!

Fantastic shot... The super moon sneaking into the new year!

Great supermoon shot. I love how part of it shines through one of the buildings.
posted January 4th, 2018  
Gorgeous moon shot!
posted January 4th, 2018  
I love the almost teasing romance of the moon with the buildings. And the golden tones are elegant
posted January 4th, 2018  
Well caught.

Great capture, I had plans for it and forgot!
