Full Moon Rises Over the San Diego City Skyline and Hangars at Naval Air Station North Island
Met up with Jeff Morris and Kevin Moto to shoot the full moon rising over the San Diego city skyline.
There was no cloud cover to the east, so we were able to capture the moon as soon as it began rising over Mount San Miguel. I shot this with a Canon 6D and Sigma 150-600mm lens at around 525mm.
Partly Cloudy Full Moon Rises Over San Diego
The Buck Moon rises above the San Diego city skyline. This is a composite of two images - I shot one exposure where I optimized for the city lights and another where I optimized for the moon. The clouds surrounding the moon made blending the two images challenging.

I shot this from Harbor Island Park.
This is my first serious attempt at doing a composite image. I did one exposure optimized for the city skyline and a separate exposure optimized for the moon. I then painstakingly combined the images to produce this result.
Any constructive criticism is welcomed.

Rising moon, San Diego city skyline, fireworks, and Coronado Bridge
I managed to capture the full moon as it was rising behind the buildings. I also captured some fireworks in different frames and combined them with the original image.
