I am not sure about this, is it some kind of graphical art?

brilliant piece of work!

Beautiful, very artistic and by all means very very creative picture! I'm still waiting for the day when I'll actually get my first ever DSLR and with a koOl lens I'll picture the moon... just like you did.... Nice effect too!

Sean said...

:) I agree, sometimes the moon needs help....

I like what you've done here, Jacob! Very creative.

This is certainly a beautiful departure from your usual fare. Lovely and very well done.

Tricia said...

W O W! What did you do? You really freaked out that moon - Looks like it went crazy! hehehe

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet...yes, I guess you could call it graphical art...it's very easy to do with Photoshop, though, as it's one of the shapes offered by that program.

No biggie, as they say, but I wanted to jazz up the photo of the moon...

Jarart said...

Fun! I enjoy playing with photo shop also. This was an artistic idea.

Lisa Wilson said...

How creative! I love it.

Don and Krise said...

I agree. Not what we're used to seeing from you, but I do like it. What the heck, it's all about the fun isn't it?

JM said...

Wow! I was not expecting this! It's super!

Lois said...

Very cool Jacob!

Asta said...

Hi Jacob,

Very interesting composition. It looks like the sun and also like the umbrellas you always get in exotic drinks. How creative!

Best regards
Asta

I keep trying to capture the moon, but so far...not much luck. It's a difficult subject, but you've done it well! Love the colour.

I bet you're enjoying reactions to this photo. I think it requires a long stay in Cedar Key, copious amounts of fine wine (or beer) and a couple dozen fried shrimp -extra jumbo. Following that you'll recover from this Peter Max mind adventure and feel like yourself again.

Wonderful capture! Makes me moonstruck! I like the shape, too.

Dan J. said...

That is a funky photo my friend. I love the yellow moon..... and since it was brought up a couple of posts back.... nothing wrong with the post processing at all. You made a great point that taking the photo was, in and of itself, a process.... photoshop is just a continuation.

In any event this is cool and I like the artistic flair from you lately. The "raven's in a tree" and this. They are really good change ups and fun to see.

Jacob said...

Thanks, Dan...the only "post-processing" of the actual moon shot was a bit of sharpening and a hit on the contrast...the starburst is a very simply Photoshop "shape."

Once in a yellow moon.

Very artsy-fartsy! (that's a compliment)
