I like it Pablo, but it does not meet up with your usual standard. There is some noise in the sky and I think you could easily have removed it using noise reduction. The composition however is very nice. Happy holidays to you too!

Hell Pablo, great scene. I like the minimal composition I think it works very well. Do you think there is a little too much sharpening here - around the trees? Well done, good work.

Happy Christmas

Best wishes to you to and your family

Hi Pablo,
What a beautiful sky/nocturnal photo. Such great simplicity and space. It is a tad noisy, but the composition is just perfect.
TFS and I hope you are enjoying your holidays.

Hi Pablo,

Another excellent landscape. Beautiful blue sky and the moon is a big plus. Very well framed.
Well done

Hello Pablo,
At first, Thanks for your grettings and I wish you a Healthy and Happy New Year !
Thanks also to share this smart blue composition. Well seen and well done.

Bonjour Pablo
Félicitation pour cette belle prise de vue avec ce superbe paysage pris juste au bon moment .On croirait voir une carte postale,avec de très belles couleurs et une jolie composition.Il est superbe ton ciel nocturne.
Merci et au revoir ....JP

Hello Pablo,
What a lovely composition you chose for your holiday greeting. I really like it. It does seem a little oversharpened to me due to the halo effect around the silhouetted areas.

Hello pablo !
Wow, I love the color of the sky, ranging from q soft blue color atthe bottom to a splendid deep blue at the top. Also a wonderful composition and POV. The silhouettes of the trees against the sky are also beautiful, as well as the tiny moon who seems a bit lost in this big sky. Very well done !

Hi Pablo. An appropriate way to finish with the skies above. Your blue skies are always an inspiration and this is another very suitable one. All the best for the year ahead. Murray.

loved your miniture the minute I saw it!
The full shot is not bad either, eh! TFS
Happy shooting in 2007!

just managed to see the moon on the thumbnail
and missed this being away
happy christmas!!
good shot of the terminator coming over the vaulted sky..the distance of the moon from the trees adds tension and stretches the shot in its upright format..

Hi, Pablo.
It's nice as an artwork. Composition with high moon and silhouettes is very good and color of sky is also impressing.

Hello Pablo,

I really like this POV alot clean and free, of clutter, Simple subject and a great POV perfect saturated colors excllent work

I like the atmosphere on this photo ... well taken

Hello Pablo!
I've missed this and it deserves attention for it's simplicity and beauty...

Hi dear Pablo;very good a shadow shot,good frame,tfs....

Very appealing composition!

This is a wonder shot. Fantastic portrayal of the blue sky, the half moon and the silhouetted trees. Awesome ambience captured here with a surreal effect. Excellent POV and a very artistic concept here. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
