Snooked,

When you said two exposures I'm not quite sure what you meant. Using an editor, two shots blended into one as in pasting the image of the moon into the lighthouse shot OR two exposures of the same scene in the camera resulting in one file (almost like the old time double exposure)?

Moderators may have a problem if you pasted the moon into the picture. Image editing on that scale is verboten in this forum.

Irrespective of your answer, very nice job.

Aloha

Ditto. Can you explain the "double exposure" comment? It's a great picture BTW. I would have tried (and perhaps you did)a bit longer exposures to obtain more details of the scene.

I am curious about the double exposure, also. Was the moon present originally? Great caputre of the light house.

Some newer DSLRs support multiple exposure. They actually take separate images and then merge them in the camera. The Nikon D200 has this capability.

However, as has been said, if this merge was accomplished iin a photo editor, it does not qualify.

Having said all that, it is a beautiful image.

The exposure was taken twice, the moon copied from the exposure done to show the detail of the moon and pasted over the oversaturated moon in the exposure to show the lighthouse. The moon is in the actual position when the photo was taken. I am not trying to hide anything, everything is where it was at that instant, just looks better with detail in the moon.

Snooked, no need to feel guilty etc about the background to the shot. I think we agree the picture is lovely but the rules would place it in a different category.

Cheers and thanks for joining us. Great submissions.
