Personally i like the darker version, but this shot with the exposure brought out more, gives you a sense that maybe that is
the sun and not the moon...

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the Ram River valley on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta
Time
10pm
Lighting
Full moon was out so it seemed like a great time to photograph the tiny stream in the shot.
Equipment
Nikon d7100 , 8mm (crop) fisheye, gitzo tripod
Inspiration
I was just messing around doing some night shots, I didn't think I had anything good until I dumped the card onto the computer a month later
Editing
Minimal alteration of levels in Adobe Lightroom, needed to cover up a big flare that was in the shot too...
In my camera bag
Nikon d800, Nikon d7100 Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 Nikon 28mm f2.8 Nikon 50mm f1.4 Nikon sb-700 flash
Feedback
Shoot lots and often. Make yourself get up at night and just play with your equipement.
