And this is a result.

The problem is, that I'm not satisfied with the result... I' looks unnatural. I cannot figure out , why.

Your help is greatly appreciated, at least give me some directions...

Nice shots, but it looks like the moon was placed in front of the clouds to me in both the original and the last one. Good job otherwise.

First, the moon is pasted on top of the clouds...it would actually be behind or partially obscured by the clouds. Also, silhouettes are usually done with the sun creating the effect.

I corrected the moon. and added some mote light. Unfortinately I don't know how to render more sofisticated lighting effects...

That's better, IMO. And now, how about increasing blue in colour variations at the PS ?

I like the general idea, but the shadows all indicate a light source to the left of the frame. I don't think the two photos you're starting with are compatible.

From what I remember of the moon behind clouds, I think it loses most of it's detail. Also, I wondered whether, in this picture, it would look more natural if it were smaller? How does this seem? -

It's better. My thought was, that since I used zoom ~ 300mm, it has rather significant enlarging effect on moon and sun?
