I had to travel this week for work and had a tough time getting inspired to shoot something else besides my 7 month old so. The first night, nothing. I couldn't get into it. But the second night found a full moon in the haze. 6 sec. exposure.



Following that, I extended it to a full panorama.



You can see the originals at my flickr site if you want to check out the "huge" size.

what kind of crop do you see in your mind? I'd like to know how to improve the photo.

Kind of crop emphasizing the symmetrical reflection of the misty moon and the three 'three masted' and the smalled one behind it (at most!) The original one is charming enough!and thusno easy to suggestanother... The one below mightalso work, imo : )

great crop Bahadir!

On a night like that, I'd be running around trying to get in as many shots as possible!

Great shot! Was it manual or auto exposure?

interesting crop. I didn't even notice how the smaller ship could be part of the scene!

This was full manual. 6sec, ISO 100, tripod, max aperture for the lens (probably f/3.5). What I didn't realize at the time was that the XSi was set to do noise reduction in-camera for long exposures. If I had realized that, I would have run a test with and without it.
