Altered Images Photographs manipulated for artistic purposes by applying digital and/ or traditional special effects (i.e., colorizing, toning, collage, photo composites, HDR, etc.) in the Texarkana area. Winner “Ace of Clubs Moon” by Eric Ethridge INSPIRATION I set out with the goal of getting a photo of the post office with the full moonrise. To attempt this with my 800 mm lens, I had to get very far away from the post office (a few blocks away) so I could use the full zoom and make the moon appear as large as possible. Unfortunately, the moon did not line up well with the composition I had in mind… but it did line up perfectly with the Ace of Clubs house. Even though this is the category of “altered image,” the moon appeared almost exactly as it does in the image, but I did have to take two exposures to expose the house and the moon, and I also had to slightly enlarge the moon to cover the glow of the moon on the house exposure.
