Celestial Snooker by ZeEnigMa Celestial Snooker by ZeEnigMa
Full moon lighting (and no manipulations). (This title has been suggested by a photographer).

EDIT 01/01/09> My third DD !! What an excellent surprise for this first day of 2009 :) Many thanks to damien-c for his support and to opioid to have featured this photograph. I wish you a happy new year !!

For those who asked for technical details:

Subject: a yellow buoy attached to an old tire (they were blown onto the beach by a storm from their original position at 250m).

Technical details: f = 11mm, f/8, 120" exposure on a sturdy and heavy weighted tripod (you can see the shadows of the feet on the sand). A slight wind moved the buoy and created this yellow blur, the shooting star was the icing on the cake but it's not that incredible, they are plenty (Geminids this particular night).

A very strange picture indeed. I love how the lighting is creating the reflection atop the water and sand. A perfectly-timed shot! :clap: :heart:

The belt of Orion in the right top corner looks just great :aww: I'm wondering what's in the middle, I don't think it's falling star, maybe a plane?

Nicely done photo. I am sorry that is a Daily Deviation. Daily Deviations are degrading now. This piece is too good to be a Daily Deviation.

I mean it. This piece is wonderful. But most of the Daily Deviations I've seen are useless. But this photo is phenomenal. I just hate when people photograph useless stuff. Like an ordinary photo of like a pencil with no good photography effects and then it gets the DD. Thats just plain wrong. Like good flashes on Newgrounds never get front page. Front page is degrading now too.
