    You ended up with a pleasing composition. How close were these objects to each other when photographed?

    Thanks John, Im not great at determining distances but the position of the Lighthouse made it appear quite close. It sits atop a cliff face right on the coastline - the moon rose directly behind it and moved it way up and around. I researched before I went out and it said this was one of the best locations to view Moon rise

    Hi Bobo - I thought it was my eyes too, i think it was due to the fact I was at a slight angle to the lighthouse not front on for this one as other that I took straight on appeared fine - I have tilted it slightly and attached

    Cheers

    Harry, great juxtaposition of images. Just a suggestion: make the lighthouse look like it was bathed in moonlight as opposed to the yellow artificial light in the picture.

    Thanks Karm, have a few different images so will play around with it a bit more, the lighting on the lighthouse made it somewhat challenging so i tried a number of differnt exposures etc - cheers

    This lens perspective distortion can be easily fixed in any of the Adobe products and would just finish this. Be careful not to make it to straight as that looks wrong as well.
