Update: Since it's no secret the moon was Photoshopped into this picture, I changed it just a little to look more realistic.

This is a photo that catches the eye. The first thing is the way the frame has been divided by the bridge, into two even halves. It does not do the photo any harm, because there are completely different things happening in each half. The contrast between the dark blacks and lights works great. Only the positions of lights in the upper half is a but chaotic. I think that you could also erase the “stars” forming from the lights, they do not fit the lights of the buildings, it would be enough if they were just bright points, in the lower half the are finely blurred. The most odd bit of the photo is the moon, which seems to have been glued in.

Hi there! I was on vacation when I captured this shot. I live in Denver, Colorado, so I have to say that I'm not familiar with the Skyway Bridge...

And thank you! I would love to go back to Tampa one of these days... :)

hmmmmm... how can i make this constructive. moon shots are tough, this one almost looks plausible, and would be a great under the manipulation category. But showing the meta data gives too much away... with a lens at 10mm the moon would never appear that large and an exposure for 30 seconds would make the moon a streaking blur, and March 3rd of this year did not have a full moon, but rather a waning 67% moon.

The composition of the the shot(s) is(are) very pleasing though!

Darn, you figured me out! LOL! I did add the moon later in Photoshop, but I photographed the moon itself just three days (on February 28th) before I took this picture. I guess I wasn't entirely sure how big the moon would have been in real life had it actually been in the sky the moment I captured this shot. Maybe I can make it a little smaller to become more realistic?

Anyways, thank you for your comment! It's very much appreciated. :)

You are welcome! I have decided to take on, as of late, the challenge of lunar photography myself and have found it quite difficult! It is a challenge to find good foreground subjects that compliment the moon using the right lens at the right time of night. The most difficult is anticipating where the full moon will rise, it changes so drastically from month to month, and even day to day. I have a few tools on my phone that assist in telling times of moon rise and set and even a cool app that plots the path of the moon on any day at any time from any location using GPS. Even so, it's still a tough subject to shoot. This last full moon I was excited to shoot with Downtown Denver, but the night that would have worked out best for lighting was completely overcast and snowy... and it will be a few months till a full (or even semi full) moon will rise at the right time of twilight to make an evenly exposed image of foreground city lights/sky/moon. If you have any tips or tricks to lunar photography, let me know! I'd love to try them out.

timeanddate.com has a nice tool for moon rise/set times angle in the sky, and a little map that shows where it is in relation to the earth.

I use it more for sunrise/set though.

I was going to mention the moon was way to big also, through a wide angle lens the moon is going to be small, through a super wide its going to be minuscule.
