Full Moonrise Coronado Beach
Christmas Eve 2015. A 99% full moon rises behind a home facing the Coronado Beach. I actually went to the beach to take pictures of the sunset and then I turned around to see the moon rising.
Photo Tip - Composition
When I looked through the lens at the moon, I framed it without the tall palm tree on the left. Then I zoomed out and took some shots including it. I had a feeling that the composition was better with the tree, even though it looked kinda straggly and lonely over there.
When I processed the image, I tried it with and without the palm tree. At the normal 3:2 aspect ratio, it did not look right. Then I tried a 2:1 aspect ration and that looked the best. The composition focuses on the moon and there is a pleasing foreground with a tree balancing the left side.
