The orange color is mostly due to light pollution rather than the moon, but it doesn't sound as good! I've just increased brightness and contrast and neatimage of course...

Eeeee! I love that song!! "By the light of the moon, he's a frenchman for the night, by the light of the moon, it'll be alright"

One of my favorite Jimmy Buffet songs!!

This is stunning - this will no doubt serve as an inspiration to owners of cannon's trusty point and shoot everywhere!

Doesn't ring true to me, a sky with that much light *and* stars at the same time. Pretty though, even if a bit artificial.

this is one of the most beautiful images i've ever seen on DPC...Everythong looks great - the composition, lighting, sillhouettes of the trees, fog, stars, everything! Great job!

Nice color. I think I would of cropped a little more of the bottom out on having just a small amount of the silhouette ground leaving the trees.

Returning for comment.
Well this is my pick for a Ribbon, I just love the soft glow of this photo and the sharpness of the silhouetted trees. If there was anything that I would improve it could be the levelling of the foreground but maybe it slopes that way naturally. Congrats and I hope I'm somewhere near you at the end!

You title throws me: is this really moonlight? Looks like the looming of a distant city rather. I like the effect nevertheless. I don't get a great deal from it though - against the starts the effect of the moving clouds is effective, but the horizon is a bit ordinary, and whilst obviously necessary to the shot, I'm left wanting more of something. 6

Have you considered a hue shift? I wonder how this would appear in an electric blue. I think the stars save this exposure, as the lower right is a bit hot. Had you decreased the exposure length, perhaps those stars might have not manifested itself. Overall a very dramatic and mysterious entry. 7

This is pretty interesting capture... specially stars through clouds.

I keep seeing shots that have this look, and people seem to like them... but to me, they seem over-processed.. even thought it has nice color and lighting

Great job. The light is amazing and the star detail makes the shot. A little more interest on the ground might have improved it, but very nice.
