Moods of the Moon

Few days back, the moon along with the clouds was looking so beautiful and the clouds surrounding it were giving it so many different moods that I experimented a bit with it. Here are some of the pics. Do tell me which ones you liked!



The blue and yellow color gradient gives a beautiful but mysterious feel.

Got the blue tint using Tungsten for WB. Feeling blue?

The covered moon gives it an ominous feel.

The clouds form an interesting shape behind the moon. Does it look like a dragon to you?

This one looks like it's from the set of a 1960 bollywood movie. Romantic and antique.

    1. Thanks. Yes they were all taken in the same day. The clouds were there with the moon only for a short time in the evening. I took these pics in a span of around 30 minutes.

  11. My vote's for the first one. Have you heard abt the rule of the thirds. If applied, the first one would have been even awesome. cheers.

    1. Thanks Muthu. In fact, I did try to position the moon in the upper third, but centered it horizontally as it looked nicer to me that way. But of course, what you suggested would also have looked nice!

  24. Looks like a Harry Potter movie, I tell you. My vote goes to the shot where the moon is hidden almost completely- it exists, yet cannot be seen.

  26. Beautiful, each capture in its own right! But the ones that blew me over were the third one (Tungsten) and the fourth (ominous covered moon). Love 'em. :)
