See it! 2018’s Harvest Moon

Steve Thamer caught the moonrise on September 23 and wrote: “Moonrise at equinox over Lake Ontario …”
Kwong Liew in San Francisco wrote: “I took a series of shots over a 6-minute time. The shot with the moon on top of the Pyramid was chosen as a base and processed to adjust exposure, contrast, clarity and noise reduction. Selective burning/dodging applied on the building. Two additional shots were processed using the same settings and added on layers to form the final image. Image was planned using TPE, Photopills and other tracking app. Arrived on location 30 minute prior to set up. The atmospheric condition was not ideal as it was a little hazy, but the setting sun created a nice pink color backdrop. Shot on Sony A7R3, Canon FD 800 5.6L Lens + 1.4X converter.” Thank you!
