Hi Selen,

An interesting image. Colors, contrast excellent.
Very beautiful your landscape.
Have a beautiful day,

Nefis bir gece çekimi. Elinize sağlık Selen Hanım.

Hi Selen,
I am certain that some dude will jump to a early conclusion and comment about the contrast. And maybe do a WS to adjust it all. I think that one needs to realize that this photo was taken in the evening probably soon after the sun fully set. lets wait and see.
Back to the photo. I like the warm glow of the early moon and the way the reflection draws the eye into the composition. It is great to see that you positioned the moon just outside the center of the photo

Hi Selen

Nice to see you back here and i hope you are well from all aspects.
This is the type of picture that i've been trying one lately, too - landscapes with a longer focal length, but i see you've done better than me :)
The exposure here is just spot-on and has a very good high and natural dynamic range. The ISO 320 helped you in getting the best details form the darker hills as well as the bright moon.
Further more, i really like the delicate reflection of the moon in the water...a very nice and artistic element.
Overall, superb job!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Selen,
For me this is one of the most beautiful photos of the last days. All the attention goes to the superb orange coloured moon and the warm light of it, reflected in the water. The place of the moon and the mountains in the composition is really perfect. Thanks. Lets make a big poster of it ;-)

Hello Selen,
A fine tranquil evening capture with an excellent reflected light of a red-looking full moon. The redness is probably caused by a smoky atmosphere, but the bg hills are well seen beyong the water.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hola Selen.
Hermosa postal de esta Luna. Gran calidad en la imagen y un exelente encuadre.
Muy bella Selen.

Merhaba Selen,
you seem to be quite a romantic soul, Selen! An artist too. How can you render the moon so clearly with 1/49 sec and on a boat! I guess you have to be Selen for that. My congratulations to this surprising feat.
Best regards

Hello Selen,
Superb landscape!!!! Nice color & good POV.

Merhaba Selen, fascinating romantic composition with fantastic moon, splendid exposure and wonderful reflections, very well done, ciao Silvio

I am stunned, Selen. No words can do justice to this soulful shot. Take a bow,my friend, as usual, you've outdone all expectations one has from even the normal superb SelenE shots.
Bravo and respect!

Hello Selen,

The romantic atmosphere is well captured!
Appealing simplicity in the composition, lovely reflection in the rippled water...
I notice the details in the moon, nice work!

Hello Selen,
Very simplicity landscape and minimalist composition, sometimes this king of image is not easy to take, but this one is perfect with accompany of the orange moon, I particularly like the strings of reflection on the water. even in this low light you managed some very nice details on the hill as well. Great shot. thanks.
