Spaceship Earth Dwarfs the Moon

    I don't normally revisit past shots for at least a couple of years unless I feel the original is less-than-stellar, but in this case, exactly 364 days after taking this shot, I decided to recreate one of my favorite shots from 2010.

    There were a few reasons I did this. First, I love taking Spaceship Earth photos. Second, the legs no longer had the Leave a Legacy styling. Third, the full moon against the huge geosphere was a nice juxtaposition. Finally, I traded in the orange sky that everyone (except me) seems to hate for a beautiful clear star-filled blue sky (at least on this end of the park).

    All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the shot. Sometimes, as they say, you go with what works!

      Absolutely perfect. You nailed the symmetry (very important when using a fisheye) and the colors are beautiful, especially in the sky.

      I revisit old shots all the time and it's usually when an element, in your case the moon, adds something extra special or unique.

      I wonder which one Ryan likes more? I'm guessing the 2010 version!

      Love the spaceship against the moon! Nice catch with this, Tom. Very cool that you would post the new one almost a year after the earlier version.

      This is good stuff right here. That moon is amazing.

      The symmetrical framing, superb sharpness and outstanding colors make this a winner. Your night shots always amaze me!
