10-04-13 Variation On A Harvest Moon

2013 10-04 Variation On A Harvest Moon by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

In case you are counting, this is the third Harvest Moon photo I’ve posted in the last couple weeks. Why do I repeat myself? In part because I like full moons. And thieves, sailors, lovers and vampires love them. But the best reason is to illustrate the fact that the same subject (the moon) can have very different looks given the variables of time, place and composition.

This shot is very similar to this one. But I thought I would show you how I experimented with the leading lines that were present – in particular, the road, the fence and the horizon. Incidentally, this is an HDR photo in which I combined two exposures. Which do I like better? I can’t say. . . .
