Dorrigo Supermoon by DrewHopper Dorrigo Supermoon by DrewHopper
Sunday's event was a "supermoon," the closest and therefore the biggest and brightest full moon of the year. At 11:34 p.m., the moon was about 221,802 miles from Earth. That's about 15,300 miles closer than average. That proximity makes the moon appear about 14% bigger than it would if the moon were at its farthest distance.

This photo was taken at dusk from the Dorrigo National Park Skywalk - NSW, Australia. Perched 70 meters above the very edge of the escarpment. The stunning view sweeps over the park and encompasses the Bellinger Valley to the coast. You can see how the landscape has been folded and sculpted into hills, gorges and slopes, and look down into the top of the rainforest canopy.

The contrasting warm and cool colors between the moon and the sky create a nice effect.

Nice take on it here. Did you open up the shadows a bunch on the hillside?

Blended 2 exposures, one for the mountains and another for the moon/sky. Too much you reckon in the FG? It's easy to make it darker ;)

It's a terrific composition, but personally I'd dial it back slightly :)

No worries, I was a little unsure when I uploaded this. I like it, but I'm going to agree and do that. Cheers mate :P
