Full Moon and 120 Collins

Full Moon and 120 Collins

Two nights ago was one of the brightest full moons of the year (thanks Dave for letting me know), and being a clear Melbourne night I thought top of the Rialto tower would be a good place to get both the sunset and the moon rise.

The structure in the fore-ground is the top of 120 Collins Street, one of the taller skyscrapers in Melbourne.

The sunset shots will follow in the coming days, but here was one of the better moon shots.

Recovery in RAW, rotate, selective shadow/highlight, USM, crop, duplicate layer blended, selective noise reduction.
