Thanks for the article. I would like to read more like these, and hope next year you have (even) more success and post an update!

Cheers!

On Moon House_V1 in the Interesting Landscapes challenge (24 comments in total)

I think this is good image.

As has been pointed out, it's perhaps not great photography. But I think when the majority of people vote, they tend to rate the image, and are less likely to consider the story, effort, journey that was or wasn't being the image.

Presumably people should bear in mind that being voted first place (or any high position) is a indication of how popular the image is, and not necessarily artistic merit. The hardcore of any art form rarely have time for most of the popular works of that medium.

A line in the sand would probably help people understand what entries they can enter, and expect to compete against, when reading the rules for the competition.

Hi,

How did you avoid getting the camera reflected? Did you photoshop it out?

Just curious.

Cheers,

Mark

Hi

Can someone please explain how to take a photo with an shutter speed of 563 seconds? The specifications for the 7D say the minimum speed is 30 seconds. I have a D5000, which also has a minimum speed of 30 seconds and I'm wondering if I could someone take longer exposures.

Thanks.

Grats T_O_M_E_K! One of the most convincing winners I've seen. Fully deserved! How long did you spend getting the lighting to look so good?

I really like what you've done with this picture. Could you briefly describe what techniques you've used, please?
