One Photo, Three Ways

When daylight savings time ended early Sunday morning, our daylight hours also shrunk. Instead of getting home with some daylight left, it is now dark.

As I left the university this evening, it was already dark.  Looking into the dark, evening sky I noticed the beautiful fingernail of a moon.  Even knowing that my iPhone doesn’t take great pictures of the moon, I couldn’t resist pausing to take a shot.

When I got home I thought I would play with this image (which was better than I anticipated) using the app Tadaa.  It has some interesting filters that work particularly well with playing with light and shadow.

Here’s a dark version:

I like the way the trees frame the moon in the distance and the reds and oranges are nested in the foreground.  I couldn’t resist trying one of my favorite filters, otherland, and was surprised when it turned my dark, nighttime image to white.  I love the way the moon is silhouetted in the white sky.

The filters dramatically change the mood and setting of this photo.  Each tells a different story by a simple change of the filter.

What stories do you see in these images?  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to write your ideas in the comments here!
