Night rambles....

Click any photo to enlarge.
I have been watching the moon all week, and finally last night decided to take a stab at capturing it again. This was along about 11:00--I was out down there in my pj's with my husband helping me carry my tripod. And guess what, it was in a position to get it and Karanovich's funeral home together!
I have wanted to get them together forever but never seem to notice when the time was right. These certainly are not perfect, but I do kind of like the affect. I have done nothing with them...except the second one I darkened the background just a bit. I don't have a filter of any kind on--not sure why I got the star effect, unless it was keeping the shutter open a bit long than needed.
They are not the greatest, but for some reason I like them. Even with the 'hotspots' in them...I suppose if I could think straight right now I could use the photo software to even them out a little. I know when I used to develop B&W that I could adjust for spots that were either too dark or too light.

There is a christmas feeling in these photos with the tall tree and the star shape, if only that star had been on top of that tree. Your husband carries your tripod? Lucky You!

I love the first and last = very nice Rose!
I agree with the Christmas feeling - Christmas in July!

Those turned out good Rose, Like others I thought they were sort of a Christmas scene that belongs on a Christmas card.

I really like these and I agree about the Christmas feeling to them. Sounds like you are pretty smart with your camera.

I agree, my first thought: "It's almost Christmasy!"
And I like them as well

I love these photos, mostly because we don't get night skies in the summertime and I really miss the contrast of the bright moon and dark skies. We still see the moon, but it's white against blue in the summer months. Nice job of capturing it - and I love that the funeral home is included.

These are really nice, Rose. Amazing, in fact!

I like these, too. For some reason, the juxtaposition of moonlight and artificial light fascinates me. Maybe because they are both borrowed lights? These are great.
