Optical illusions are hard to grasp still when you know it is one. I asked myself several times, why is the moon tonight so big. Mostly it was only because I could see it with something together that I knew that it is big. This photo here, was a lucky shot, that I made when I crossed the bridge to BU. From there you can see Boston down town in the distance and all of the sudden the moon was rising.
Technically it was challenging to make. I need to take a long focal length (sorry for the not perfect quality), the dynamic range between the moon and the scene is incredible large, and the moon is pretty fast for a night shot. The shot is an HDR with 6 Exposure.
I also like that you can see all the different colors of artificially light (green, orange, white, blue) in this shot.
