Moon over half dome

So I figure this post's title alone will get me a bunch of Google hits from people looking for the Ansel Adams photograph of the same name. It's all part of my plot to take over the world. Mwahahahah! A bunch of outbound links should help my cause, too.

Actually, this is a shot of the moonrise over the silo of a barn near Batavia, Illinois. Not anywhere near as technically brilliant as Adams' work nor as stunning a backdrop. That's the Midwest for you.

Bad photo tip of the day: I subscribe to a number of Google Alerts to help me keep up with the world of photography. As such, I get links to a number of Web sites that offer photo tips, many of which either don't know what they're talking about, or don't know how to say what they're thinking. So here's today's bad tip from Web Photo Storage, which offers nine more obvious or ambiguous suggestions:

Employ lighting suitably and merge them appropriately.

I'm heading right out to work on that one. Oh, and according to tip number three, if you don't have the sky, a treeline and a fence in your picture, forgedaboudit.
