Another nice shot too. This one is great with the perspective of the buildings. Nice and clear too.

Great shot, Kamaly. Your exposures for the sky and the buildings are so great that this looks like two shots put together.

Awesome shot, looks like you got there just in time.

Thanks, marbiz, not1word, and Guy ! Yup, two minutes later, they were off work and jumped on the commuter train home from South Station here.

and not1word - just one shot, and I think all I adjusted was to bump the contrast up a tiny tiny bit. But the one thing I experimented with here was distorting the upper right corner to straighten the tall building so it didn't look like it was falling down.

You shot it at 52mm, which is pretty near actual eye perspective. Was there that much distortion to get rid of? Either way, I really do like this one.

Thanks, dianne ! The weather turned out so nice, so it was fun walking around the city finding a bunch of different locations to get the grouping. You must be regretting a bit that you weren't down in Marlo for it. The group setting over the water there must have been stunning.

and n1w - I think mostly because of the tallness of the building on the right, it was noticeable enough to me - and I suppose it was slight enough that I could fix it without distorting the moon and all. Tried to do the one on the B-n-P page, but that just didn't work for me.

Hi kamaly yes, I am sure it would have been great at Marlo to get the MVJ, the skies are so clear and sparkly down there, amazing when you get into the country how much clearer the sky is.

Had to Vote for an upside down MVJ

Hi Dianne - Thanks! And so interesting: I just came across a shot by someone in Germany, where only Jupiter is visible - he got the shot while the moon was over Venus!
