Dancing with moon by zardo500px

I took this photo between two hard rains. It was pretty difficult and pretty fun at the same time. All were dark and i could only see when there were no clouds. My camera were totally soaked. I’ve ruined my pants, my shoes and I’ve got a cold seek now 😉 but the result deserves it !
The photo was taken in a lapse of time of 300 seconds. It was a perfect full moon ! It’s nowhere in the field.

A pure magical night ! I’ve danced with the moon !

Moonlight Lava Exploring by tomkualii

Exploring the lava fields during a moonlit night. Lava entering the sea at different points on the Big Island of Hawaii. This one about 50 yards away from making its entry. One of the best experience since being a lava photographer is being out on a full moon night shooting lava. This is a repost after spending a little more time working on the file. Looks better I think. LOL. Aloha

The wanderer of darkness by ArpanDas

A self portrait with the moon and milkyway, so its basically MMM(Me, moon and milkyway) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .

Another image from a trip with with my friend Ramit during last summer near Antignano(Tuscany). The conditions were perfect for night photography. But there was something more crazy. We got the moon and the Milkyway in a single frame (for a very less time: something like 15 minutes) when the moon was setting and near the horizon. I have never seen something like this. We didn’t have any star tracker that night, but my friend had a 50mm with him and I knew it can bring the crazy details as well. So the sky was taken with Canon 6D and 50mm and the foreground with Nikon D810 and Samyang 14mm. It was not easy to blend as the two lenses have different scaling. The sky is a pano of twelve images. The foreground consists of two images, one with and one without the self portrait. I love the overall result

Land of Cosmos by ArpanDas

Read the description please.

I know first thing people will think about is how it is possible to get the milkyway when there is such a bright moon. Well my expression was exactly similar when I shot this. This was taken at a single time (nothing has been taken separately Even we did not know there is a milky way. When we were shooting another composition with the moon we saw the moon with milky way in raw file (it was hardly visible with naked eyes). After watching this it immediately reminds me the great capture of Michael Shainblum who captured the moon with the milky way. Well still someone may think that I am making a nice story, so here is the link for one of the raw file(I hope it works, if not u can ask me).


Technical details: For this particular shot I used the 16-35 canon lens just because of the monstar. The lens is great for monstar. This is a panorama of 12 images and one exposure for the moon. For the monstar I used aperture 9 and for the rest of the image aperture 2.8. The transition in color was real (no color gradient has been added). There is a city behind the field in the left. So a huge light pollution comes from it. I tried some foreground elements but nothing was interesting except this anti-aircraft gun placed during the world war. I quite like the way it was pointing towards the milkyway. The glow on the gun is from the moon. It was so bright that an artificial light source was not needed to light the foreground.

A great thanks to my friend Attilio Di Giangiacomo who asked me to join him for a night photography and he showed me this great location. Not only that I didn’t have my camera as it has been sent to the service centre. So he also allows me to use his camera for this shot.
