Mare Tranquillitatis (Sea of Tranquility)

"Sometimes the wrong white balance can do the right job."


When I'm out there shooting different subjects in the same evening/night, even though I'm prepared (settings,etc), a lot of things can go wrong, or better say, not the expected way.

For this shot, the wrong white balance clearly made the right job !

It's the same night with this shot : and as you may understand, when I moved from the one place to the other, I forgot to change the white balance from Tungsten to..something else.

And this unexpected error of mine, made the sea look like it was an illuminated pool !

Wow !
