    Full Moon Weekend

    Hi,
    I would like to share some of my pictures taken over the past few days. I decided to try the early mornings as the moon was setting rather than evening shots with the rising moon.
    Thanks for viewing my pictures. Your comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

    I like #1 and #4 on this series, Rob. The water reflection on #1 compliment the way you composed the shot. As for #4, I like the way you used the moon and the fisherman as your contrasting subject. My only comment is that I wish you had included more shore detail so the fisherman is not totally at the far end corner of the frame for balance. Nice work!

    Rob, here's one possible edit to the shot to make it balanced.

    Full Moon Weekend

    I added some shore area, Leveled the horizon and positioned it 1/3 from the bottom (using the rule of thirds in composition), moved the moon and its water reflection towards the inside of the frame for balance, and also I moved the fisherman a little bit for some drama. This is just a suggestion. Sometimes, it doesn't hurt to edit your work if necessary to bring out the vision that you had in your mind when you took the shot. Hope I did not offend you. Thanks.

    Jiro,
    Not offended at all. It does look much better. I think it's like writting, you write something and read it a bunch of times and you start to miss little things that a new reader would pick up on right away.

    What program did you use for the edits?

    I use photoshop, Rob. Any version of Photoshop can be used to do this kind of editing. I use the clone tool, set at using a hard brush, Normal Mode, Opacity to 100%, flow set to 5%. Hope this helps.
