I timed my trip into the John Muir Wilderness backcountry to coincide with the full moon cycle last month. Here are two images taken approx. 20 and 10 minutes before sunrise respectively. I captured several images with alpenglow on the Sierra crest and with the moon was properly composed but prefer the less contrasty pre-dawn glow with the more stylized over-exposed moon. Appreciate any comments, suggestions or critiques and any preferences between the two images. Thanks

Hey Dave,

Very nice work here on both of these. I really can't pick a favorite, there are aspects of both that appeal to me.

Well, I'll pick the first as a favorite - it has a perfect blend of dark and light tones, and that purple sky is just lovely!

Something about the first one has more impact for me. Both are lovely. Nice work, Dave. What basin is this?

Wonderful images! I'll pick the first as my favorite too, probably because it has more water and mountain reflection than the second image. But both are great!

Fav is number one. This is really a gorgeous capture. What grabs me is the opposition of the boulder and the sun (moon)........but what do I know?!!

I like the first one.
The first one for me is one of those rare occurrences where having the moon more toward the center of the frame actually works better (in my opinion).

Very nice tones and clarity with these. Also really like the framing on both of them. If i had to pick a favourite I'd go with #1.

No 1 has more impact and grabs the viewer's attention. The symmetry with the stronger object of foreground interest and dramatic scene with deeper colours makes it a powerful image.

I like them both. If forced to chose it would be #2...

Dave, I really like these shots. Very nicely done. I prefer, by a nose, #2 with the gentle curve of the alpine tarn. Thanks for sharing and great job with the PP.

Gorgeous captures Dave!
Both are good, the first feels stronger to me.

The first shot is stunning. One of the better reflections I have seen on this forum.

Both are gorgeous, but if I had to pick, I'd pick the first one.

So I have no idea where these places are but both shots are great. I will have to explore this are one day. I'm in Bishop 10 times a year but hardly go into the backcountry. Thanks for sharing...
