Big winner

Doris Rafaeli is the first place winner for this week’s SunShots theme, “Big,” with her image of a New York moon shot with a Nikon D850, lens at 500mm, f6.3, 1/3 sec. and ISO 800. Rafaeli used a tripod and a remote shutter release. Baltimore Sun photographer Algerina Perna critiques, “The grandiose moon juxtaposed against Lady Liberty and an indigo sky creates a captivating image. Rafaeli’s efforts of carrying a long lens and tripod were well worth the results. The photo would be even stronger by cropping out the crane at the far left and coming in a little on the right, which in effect, turns the photo into a squarish vertical.”
