Full Moon over Brooklyn Bridge

ylw-text.gif My favorite time for shooting a moon picture is that short period where the sky is just dark enough that the moon has "black" behind it, but still some light left on the horizon where the sun has set. This adds color, and also provides enough ambient light for the scene to keep the shadows from getting too muddy. I set my camera on the traditional f3.5/30-seconds and composed this classic view of the Brooklyn Bridge for the first exposure using a 17mm wide angle lens. Then, I turned 120 degrees to the right, facing Eastward, where the moon was just high enough to clear the Washington Bridge. I changed lenses to my 100-400mm zoom, and I composed the moon in size and location in my viewfinder that matched up with the position that I knew to be empty in the first exposure.
