Photographer’s description: “Total lunar eclipse was expected last evening but the weather forecast in Seattle appeared not good. Even until sunset time, the majority of sky was cloud-covered. The … total eclipse was expected to be at 8:40 p.m. and I wanted to capture the image at that time since the unique light/shadow combination makes the moon look three-dimensional. It was very fortunate that the sky cleared when the moon entered total eclipse. 100mm ISO400 0.4sec at f/9.”
Critique: “Getting the moon and the Space Needle in a single frame during an eclipse is a classic image to make. What makes this image great is the attention given to setting up a nice clean background to highlight the moon and building.”
