Blue Moon Rising - From Recycle Bin to Popular

Published September 3rd, 2012

This is my first 'Popular' photo and I have to say I am amazed, because originally I binned it.

I was putting my son to bed when I saw this amazing moonscape out the window. A series of clouds streaking across the mood, but by the time I got out the house the moment had gone. I set up anyway and had a play. I reviewed my efforts, learnt a few things, and then binned them as being not very good.

I then noticed some similar shots on 500px getting votes, so as an experiment I recycled my photo and uploaded it to see it too would capture some votes. To my amazement it racked up enough to become popular. I am chuffed nonetheless.

Thanks to everyone who supports me in my photograpic adventures. Matt.
