I could not possibly post my contribution for 31 March before midnight in Europe, so here it is:

Really well done Amando, perfect alignment of the moon with the foreground. It is also very special in that you got it against such a populated area and with the landmark towers. This should to belong in the moon thread too.

Super shot, Armando.  Love that moon, colours and the surroundings of the mountain, great setting.

Armando, this is so amazing that I can't tell whether it deserves March 31 or April 1.   :o :o :o

Thanks for all the comments on the moon image, I tried last month and I arrived to late the moon was already to far up, tried yesterday so I would get more ambient light but the weather was cloudy, so when I was able to see it it was only partially visible and again to high up, yesterday I did arrive with 15 min to spare, got setup and finally everything worked. Since the sun was already down, a single exposure was tricky but using multiple exposures was also complicated as the moon moves quickly, a single shot with a bit of highlights and saturation on the moon got this image.

Impactante Armando. I like the moon, of course, and all the man-made lights and landmarks to round up a image with great punch.


  Frank, separation of the couple from the background, can you share technical data?
