I really like the composition and the highlighted areas are beautiful.

For me,I feel the foreground is to vast to remain so dark. I wonder if the leading ling formed by the water could be brighten just a little bit to off set the great amount of darkness in the foreground? That is just my thought, you image is beautiful and if the dark version is your preference, then that is the right way to go. Well Done.   Posted: 11/02/2020 10:42:49

Thanks Larry! i found it's my monitor's issue. I am now my mobile to read, i realised the mobile phone screen shown photos are much dark then my monitor at home. i need to adjust the brightness of my monitor and also light the water part a bit. Thanks for your value advices๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™   Posted: 11/23/2020 13:53:53

Very interesting image and you captured the moonrise very well. I like the moodiness of the darkness. The brighter out of focus area at the bottom keeps drawing my eye from the moon. I would crop it off.   Posted: 11/12/2020 09:48:31

Thanks Tom. I think it's issue of the water part too dark; i will work on it and put revised photo here late.   Posted: 11/23/2020 13:55:26

Grace, I really like your image as is. My eye travels obviously first to the moon and then laterally to the right, both following rule of third. Then I favor the upper completely dark ceiling. I find I am also responding to your having lighten the rocks in the foreground. Without that my eye would not travel compeletly in a circular motion around the entire scene.
Well done.   Posted: 11/22/2020 16:43:57

Grace, I love the image. You have really captured the moonrise and moodiness of the location. The darker area at the bottom does pull my eye and make me gravitate to that portion of the image stealing my attention for the moonrise.
Another very interesting image Grace. I really enjoy your perspective.   Posted: 11/27/2020 10:30:25

I like the darkness of this image. I find the bottom part of the photo holds me down there. I would crop some off the bottom   Posted: 11/28/2020 18:52:04

I like the rocks at the bottom and your warm treatment just above. To me the photo would have more impact if the top were cropped so that the moon was closer to the dominant third focal point. I realize this eliminates some of the cave feeling, but I like it better. I especially like the lighting on the big jagged rock to the right of the moon!   Posted: 11/30/2020 18:35:41
