Sweet Gum Balls       ©2018 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       6th place, 106 points
1/5s, f5.3, ISO 200, 492mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Raw file developed in LR with basic global adjustments. Increased exposure, shadows, clarity, and vibrance. Decreased highlights and contrast.       Extra Info: Sweet Gum trees have spiky seed pods or gum balls. I silhouetted them against the Thanksgiving full moon as it rose. I underexposed by 2 stops to keep the moon from being blown out.

    This brings back childhood memories of rolling the sweet gum balls in dirt to make ammunition to throw at boys on the "enemy" team. Amazing we didn't put an eye out.

Love the colors and the framing.

    I like it better, cropped tighter from the bottom left corner and maybe darken the branch to black. Still in my tt.

    In my favorites. Maybe I would have cropped a bit more.

    Very nicely done. From the thumbnail the moon appears to have a face. Good tip about underexposing because I always end up with a blown out moon.

    Clever placement of the balls and the moon.
