"Mmmmeeeeeeoooooooooooooooo! ... By the way, why are we howling at the moon?"
Nighttime is a bit tricky to do, especially if I want the moon in the picture. It doesn't make sense to project light from the foreground if the source of light is coming from the background. At the same time, I don't want to lose the texturing of the coyote's fur and the nearby trees.
Photography is really all about finding balance. Maybe in more ways than one. ;)
