ylw-text.gif Whenever the sun sets, there is an ambient red/orange glow on the horizon. Anything there, including a rising full moon, will be lit with this color cast. This is an excellent time to shoot the moon with this color. There is still enough ambient light to make a single-exposure image of the moon and the cityscape, or, as I did in this case, make a double-epoxure. Here, I captured the moon in the first exposure, and waited till dark to shoot the skyline at night. The moon exposure used a 300mm lens at f4.5, at 1/250 second. The second exposure used a 100mm zoom, f3.5, 30 seconds. The ambient light at dusk from the first exposure of the moon is what gives the magenta tonality to the overall picture in the final result.
