Came back and saw that this was not the moon. I like it anyway. Very pleasing to my eye. Voted
Lovely composition. I like the detail in the upper third and the long reflection of moon light moving down to the bottom.
In vekor's defense, when it comes to light and dark, day and night are not split evenly between 6 AM & 6 PM all year long. For night photography the definition I found is as follows: Night photography refers to photographs taken outdoors between dusk and dawn. Night photographers generally have a choice between using artificial light and using a long exposure, exposing the scene for seconds, minutes, and even hours in order to give the film or digital sensor enough time to capture a usable image. With the progress of high-speed films, higher-sensitivity digital image sensors, wide-aperture lenses, and the ever-greater power of urban lights, night photography is increasingly possible using available light.
@vektor - sorry about the time thing. I just went in and fixed the time on my camera. Never thought to do this, I was not set for New York; however, I do not like to have my integrity questioned. It is not important to me to win any contest. Naturally, I do not think most of us on here are into that. I am here to learn how to be a better photographer and to enjoy the fellowship and the talents of other people. In my defense, (BTW- I have a masters in Geology) the date is correct, I checked. This would make it two days after the summer solstice (June 21 - a little over 15 hours of daylight) when this picture was taken. From the location of the sun, I would guestimate it to be approximately between 8 and 8:30. Technically, evening starts at 6PM.Just saying. This is not the moon due to the fact that on that date, it was in the waxing crescent phase it rose at 9:43 AM and set at 11:14PM. If evening shots are to be taken between a specific time, this should be specified. Thanks for listening.
This is no night-shot, also judging by the date and time of the picture.
Lovely place to be on a moonlit night. I love the reflection spread all the way across the lake. I see a bit of noise but this is very well composed. Great job!
Very nice. Such a soothing effect. gotta vote!
Nice shot with the moon reflecting off the water, and I like the color's voted.
