Worcester, moon rise

This photograph was made from the combination of the setting sun overlaid by a rising full moon. The ISO was set to 800, in spite of limited light available, to try and preserve the colour integrity of the evening. I put the camera down on a  railing, overlooking the lake in the foreground, to prevent camera shake. It was taken with a 17-40mm wide angle zoom, set to 36mm, and the camera settings were f5.6, 1/500, -1.3 exposure compensation. The wide open aperture adds to the feeling of overall softness by reducing the overall sharpness of the details. Taken on a very cold night in Worcester, September 2012.
