I'll second your comment about the anonymous very low scores... don't see how it helps anyone. This is a beautiful shot and you should be proud of it!

Wow, pretty weird to see someone rated this a 3. They could have had the integrity to reveal themselves with a constructive comment. Hmmmmmmm, I guess if I thought it was even approaching that bad, I wouldn't have embarrassed myself by putting it up there. I've talked to a couple other folks that are wondering about this kind of behavior on 72dpi. Whoever you are, if you were aiming to be hurtful, you scored. It hurts.

A short hike to this remarkable vantage point of Bridalveil Falls and the Valley did not let us down. Matt Granz, Jean Day, Ellie Stone and I waited through a beautiful cloudless sunset for the full moon to rise over the Falls We were all like little children when the moon peeked out and rose into the summer sky.

It took a little bit of planning to nail this composite image of three separate exposures, one for the falls and valley walls, which also consisted of the trees on the rim. Then one for the moonless sky and a final one for the moon. The real bear was blending the trees with the sky. I've blended exposures before, but nothing quite as ambitious as this, so I welcome any feedback offered.

Thanks for visiting!
