Correct me if I'm wrong again with the mountain, but I think this is the correct name. It was very windy while taking this shot, and I managed to get away with a long exposure and keep the image sharp.

17-55 @ 50mm
f/5.6, 13 secs, ISO 100

looks good though the moon seems surprisingly bright and sharp through dark clouds.

Nice, moody atmosphere. Having the moon in the pic makes all the difference.

Thanks Jason. The moon was on it's way down so I didn't have much time. I set up for a telephoto shot after this then realised it had set.

You've asked for full critique Ryan. Sorry, but I' going to be brutally honest. I really don't see the point of the long exposure, I cant understand what it adds to the picture other than a distraction. There's a time and place for LE but this looks like long exposure just because you can. I'd have preferred the picture at realistic shutter speeds to maintain the detail texture and mood in the sky but that's a personal preference.

Thanks Scott. It was nearly pitch black by the point I took the photo, so long exposure was necessary to get any exposure at all.

Liking the effect of the long exposure. It adds a little brutality to the scene.

Moody for sure. Quizzed me a bit too by the sharpness of moon, given the conditions.
