Erin said...

Jill said...

Beautiful! I love both but would really love to have that first one framed!

Ana Eugenio said...

I like them both but I would go for the second one because of the glympse of color. your macro shots are amazing. I've been through you blog and I'm delighted :)

The first one is my favorite. Very well done -- shooting a full moon is not ever an easy task.

And thanks so much for changing your comment settings. I'm so happy to be able to comment now. :)

stunning, the first one is just gorgeous

ladyfi said...

Wow - just stunning!

Brenda @ It's A Beautiful Life said...

They are both exquisite, but I absolutely LOVE the first one! I love how the shadowy, lacy leaves frame the moon.

Now those are glimpses of heaven on earth of the most divine kind!

Karen said...

Gorgeous, I like the first one best.

I do like the first one -- maybe because it is a bit brighter and you can see clouds and and the trees framing it nicely. Hope your day is great. Tammy

Deanne said...

The wonder of the moon! Beautiful, atmospheric photos!

Kel said...

the first one - by the light of the silvery moon
i played with the full moon this week too, it was fun

Judy said...

I like the first shot, because you can see more of the branches of the tree which has captured the moon, but I love the colour in the second. Hard to say which I like better!

Scott said...

Very nice. I have taken a few photos of the moon and I have tried to expose it so that the moon comes out looking correctly exposed and I have to date not really liked what I have done.

These really show me another way of doing it though and to expose for the way the moon lights up everything around them. I really like these.

lisa said...

They are both beautiful, but I like the second one better. Must be the warmth of it.

Both are stunning, but the first is more dramatic for me :)

Hi Marianne, I used my Lumix camera (I don't have an SLR) handheld on auto with a little editing on iPhoto.
Here is my camera:
