Bert,

As a calm, soothing picture, this works OK. I might crop off half of the water to accentuate the clouds more.

But as I look at it, it seems more and more unnatural. The sun should be yellow, not pure white. If it is a simulated moon, then it should have structure on its face, not just a smooth shadowing. My problem (?) is that I have an astronomy background, so I get hung up on the physical details.

Gordon

good point Gordon. thanks for your words. these are things i learn and will keep in my arsenal.
i did add moonlike features after you told me what you thought which looks more natural, but i won't post that. i've done too much already.

thanks again.


here's the actual original.
