Moonless by caterina


Phil @phil_howcroft suggested that the view of the mountains under the moonlight would be nicer without the moon. This is the photo after cropping. What do you think?
I think you need to be braver and take even more of the sky away. There are some lovely ripples of blues going through the sky just above the mountains. If you took away the big white whispy cloud in the middle and cropped just below this, then that would work really well for me - but I think it a very personal decision.

So here is even another idea...either next time shoot the scene exposing for the mountains and clouds and then one much darker exposed for the moon and then assemble them in PS. If you have PS I’d be happy to walk you through it. Or the other option would be to substitute a moon that isn’t:t blown out from another shot you probably have in your archives

@helenhall thank you Helen. I’ve done it and it looks really nice @jgpittenger Jane thanks to you too. I don’t have PS but I understand your suggestion. I’ll look for a moon from my archives and I ‘ll find a way to put the two pictures together. I really appreciate the suggestions from both of you and from @Phil_howcroft, of course!

caterina , I like what you have done here, it worked well. @helenhall helen jane's idea of an almost letterbox crop is good too , @jgpittenger Jane's edit requires some care but is a good solution too :)
It's good you had all this feedback :)
