This is an image from the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, in my home town. One evening per month during the summer, the garden opens for night viewing. This past Saturday was a perfect night, calm, clear and with an almost full moon. This picture is of the water feature, shot at about 10:45 (sun does't set here until about 9:30) 3 second exposure @ F8. Sky is a little noisy. Other critique would be welcomed and appreciated. Thanks.

I do like the water feature of the garden, only it is not the focal point. I think I understand what you are trying to do with keeping the moon in the shot, but I would crop that out and focus more on the waterfall. As you said, the sky is a bit noisy and cropping would eliminate that. I tried to do some cropping myself, but by the time I was done, the picture was a bit too grainy. If the original is bigger, i would try that.

Thanks for the comment, Headhunter. Here is another shot of just the waterfall.

You might also try to use Photoshop and lower the moon so that it is closer to the water feature.
