[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A night shot, with the moon in the BG. The blur is caused by the motion of trees captured by the camera because of a slow shutter speed.
A technique that I use to control the amount of light without relying on the shutter speed is that i cover the lense with my hands once I have captured the amount of light I needed.
Let me ask you...does that sound amateur or is it really the easier way of doing it?

The moon is a little to burnt out for my liking but the moving effect of the trees is interesting. One of those photos that is not quite there but has potential. TFS

yes, the photo is not sharpness enough, but still it looks mysterious. and the background colours - sky, looks good :-)

Hi Kirti, interesting shot for curious effect of the moonlight in the picture! Can you not set the shutter speed in your camera? Your technique sounds very pro actually, considering that it would be very difficult to decipher when the correct amount of light has gone in. What is your secret?!

TFS and Best

Bonsoir Kirti
l'effet flou, avec le contracte de couleurs vert / gris foncé, est vraiment très beau.
cela donne une bonne idée de tempête

Well Done Kirti. Good atmosphere indeed. It Bring me thoughts of Spielberg's Jurassic Park. It's a pity we don't have Dinos anymore.
Good technic.Give us more.

Hello Kirti. Good shot at the dark sky placing the fg under flash maybe. TFS and best regards. Jusni
