I don't check 'Not voting' comments as helpful. Why do people say that? It's useless. And...the 'dead space' is because if I cropped it anymore, I would lose clarity. I shot this handheld. The 'dead space' also gives it a nice 'Rule of Thirds' look...I think.

I like your title choice; I like the spooky harvest moon feel.

I looked at this shot and my first reaction was why all the open space (no pun intended), the open space, at least to me does not seem to add anything to the shot and the few stars that are visible left me wanting either more stars or less background. If I was voting, this shot would likely would have been given a five by me mainly because it does not fully convey a true sense of what the subject should be, is it the moon which is pretty cool or is it the moon and the stars which is not so cool. Good luck in the challenge.
