Wish upon a star

With Son of the Midnight Sea, this is one of my first night photos. Unfortunately I didn't had tripod, so I used some old wooden deck to use it like "monopod". Well, the result wasn't so bad. You see this "disturbence" in the sea ? For that, you can take to my model from Son of the Midnight sea :D

This is really beautiful- Again the lighting, and composition are amazingly executed. The slight tint of colour from the sky is great too, it really adds that extra depth.

These night shots you are doing are wonderful! The silhouette effect has so much...emotion; I've always been a big fan of it. Simplicity in the best of forms imo.

My oooonly real problem with this is the glare from the moon, it's too bright, but there's nothing you can really do to change that without it looking dodgy I don't think.

It looks fine as it is, anywho. Awesome work! you're improving for sure. <img src="…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart" />

Once again thank you so much for the critique. Well, I couldn't avoid the problem with glare of the moon so I named the photo Wish upon a star, which is a song from Disney's classic Pinnochio ( when that little green bastard sings about a star which looks like my moon from photo ). Once again, thank you for critique :)

Ohhh yes! I didn't think it was anything particularly...well it didn't take away from the photo. I had to look for something to crit. XD
No problem! <3

Wow, that is amazing. I'm a sucker for photos of large bodies of water and the moon, and this combines both xD
