The Moon 2 - Photography Contest [30 entries]

Lunar Eclipse Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
64.6%
Contest goal:

There are very few things that all humans on the planet experience equally. But whether you're in a rain forest or the largest city, it's the same moon above us. It's been a light for travelers, and the subject of countless poems and songs the world over. The moon we see at night is unique.

Your job in this contest is simply to photograph the moon. It might be the full moon or a crescent, but this is one contest where everyone can participate. Our interpretations may be individual, but the subject is the same for us all. The moon should be the main subject or at least be prominent in the shot. Good luck!

Due to the subject matter and in the interest of keeping this contest honest... A hi res will be mandatory.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Contest Moderator: Please keep in mind that this contest is about the moon. This means that the moon should be an important subject in the shot. Just having the moon in the photo doesnt automatically make it on theme. ( 5 years and 1985 days ago )

When I took this photo it reminded me of first few lines in the poem The Highway Man by Alfred Noyes:
"The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas"
Okay I my imagination has taken some poetic license as there is no sea anywhere but ;)
Loreena McKennit has done a lovely version of the poem set to music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2CFM4ev-g8 or the full poem can be read here:
