Results Contest: The Moon as Background Object

by Yvette Depaepe 
Published the 11th of May 2020

The moon is one of nature's wonders.  Photographing it can add a new dimension to our photographic skills and can a landscape images.  It is a challenge not to overexpose to preserve the fine details.  Admire the top 10 submissions of our beautiful natural satellite.

The winners with the most votes are:

1st place: Isabel Guzman
2nd place: Secundino Losada
3rd place: Roberto Parola 

Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'The Moon as Background Object'.


'Shooting against the sun' is the currently running theme.
Shooting against the sun is tricky but also rewarding.  The result can be quiet beautiful, especially when the sun is low and close to the horizon.  You also can use it as backlight and create some cinematic lens flares.  

This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 24th  of May 2020.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.
