Under the Same Moon by EricForFriends Under the Same Moon by EricForFriends
Firenze, Italia / Florence, Italy, seen from the Ponte alla Carraia.

As I remember it. Involving an hour or so of postwork - not to copy-paste maidens in the mist, dragons or two-headed centaurs, but to fix mundane things like white balance, lens distortion, noise and perspective. It was all there: the moon, the sky and Florence. Oh, and Jupiter, right below the moon. (Thanks for asking Staats!)

Shot on a 400 m's walking from

Thank you for featuring! :boogie:

Of course when someone loves an image of your own, so much, that they want it in their immediate view, to adore... is always THE best compliment..  I totally agree!  :aww:  I hope to one day attain the same types of praise of my own photography..   Perhaps one day..  hopefully sooner than later..  ^_~.

I have been quiet here for..  too long.  need to catch up here..  desperately, and need to find time to create again myself..  I am certain I will find many things in your gallery, considering how long I've been away from here, which is.. much longer than you have..  O.o..

Yes, maybe some post work involved, but now it has a feel of perfection - that I never have in my own images, as I never fix much in my images. I have a very "instantaneous" take on photography, and I should not be proud about it! :D

Oh, I don't know - I think it's good to be using both ways of working. I like to fiddle with a light meter and even with a tripod when there's a rare opportunity, it can be very educating, but I the best things happen in a split second and intuitively, and I don't want to lose my sense for spontaneity inasmuch as I have that.
Similarly, I enjoy it in postwork when there's really nothing that needs to be done (rarely happens :( ) and when I get a picture right after an hour or more of work. Oddly, the latter option feels more like an 'honest' job to me. :confused:
You're pictures look quite perfect to me. :)

Thanks, Eric. *SUDOR claims to be an "instantaneist". I will pretend to be the same: I shoot, and that's over. If not all was perfect, that's the way it is.

Sudor is incredibly prolific and talented... I'd love to have a big coffee table book with a lot of his work. :) But a lot of his pictures seem to have grown, for having been around for such a long time as well as from his photographic talent. So there's an element of duration and time even there. :)

No doubt. But I don't think that 30 or 40 years from now, today's street photographers will all have aged well.

Thank you Staats!
I had the same pleasant thought, but just now that you asked it, I realized that when you're looking at a full moon, you're necessarily looking away from the Sun, and consequently from Venus' orbit. So, Mars would be the likely suspect. But I looked it up in an online planetarium ( [link] ), and guess what... it's Jupiter!
First time in decades of photography that I shoot the moon, and I get Jupiter into the bargain. :D

We've really taken to Florence. First time around we visited it on day trips from a nearby camping site, in the summer heat and I didn't like it that much. But returning under better conditions, we've discovered that it's more than just a fabulous collection of art and architecture, it's truly a nice city to be, full of little treats and nice surprises if you know the way.
