  1. Beautiful city you have there, Jane. I love the first moon shot.

  2. Simply gorgeous and the colors in the first one are a show-stopper. First you give us that brilliant, vibrant gush of color and then you turn it off in the next one. Bet you’ll never guess which I prefer? πŸ˜‰

  3. Viewing the first shot, one is guaranteed “sweet dreams” ~ the moonlight shimmering off the clouds with the city below, priceless.

  6. Fabulous! Somehow we missed seeing it by night like that – though I do remember (and loved photographing) waiting for the first ferry across from Sausolito when it wasn’t really light…

  7. Absolutely gorgeous shots, Jane. You could’ve posted only one image, I would’ve been happy. πŸ™‚

  8. I usually like monochrome for the more pronounced details, but in night photography I would say the opposite because your color photographs are so clear and pure that it looks almost 3D or that we are “in” the landscape
    Have a nice day (here in Paris it’s rainy)

    • Hi Anon, I am fascinated by the colorfully lit windows and layers in the nightscapes of the city. I agree, color emphasizes those details while black and white shows the gradations of light. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts– wish I was photographing Paris at night! Thank you so much.

  18. Your nights are clad in gentle electric colors, Jane. In love with the moon and its bright side kissing the dark one, as magical as a fairy tale (and of course the technical magic to represent such a scene with a difficult dynamic range)

  25. The setting moon is evocative. But the stacked planes of Evening Hues are what really got me.
