Simplifying our compositions usually result in stronger images. I knew we were going to have a crescent moon rising at sunset and drove like a madman to find a tree that complimented its shape. Luckily these whispy cirrus clouds also got in on the act and mimicked the crescent's shape in the center portion of the composition. Pretty cool when all these elements come together!
