I also want to say that the thing I most thought you guys would pick up but didn't.......which again I am VERY pleased about, is that the moon is fake. It wasn't there..........it's taken from an image I took in Mallorca on April. I had to give the moon a reflection using cloning and dodge/burn.

Certainly.

And if the moon is a fake - would you care to try placing it on the diagonal line from the corner top right to the top of the lighthouse?

To be honest, with your first upload I thought the surreal colour combination and patterns of light looked a little contrived and at first glance it did not occur to me to view the image with any closer look at all the finer detailing; Assuming that you were just seeking a general critique upon composition and layout having created a Surreal image (which is why I suggested cloning in something to balance the picture if you were not cropping it).

I would be the last one to tell an artist how they should have painted a particular picture, unless they specifically asked upon specific aspects in detailing.

The colours are real, maybe a bit saturated.

I noticed last Monday, that te moon was quite high, in a very beautifully coloured evening sky. The colours are not that unusual, but this was the Southern sky, rather that the Wstern one.

I remember going out one morning, a few years ago, to take pictures of the sunrise when the whole sky changed to a bright pink. I couldn't believe it. Normally, any colour change fades as the distance from the light source increases but, in this case it didn't.  :o

Glad my image had created something to talk about. Thats what it's all about. The colours were tweaked by adding a filter and adjusting hue/saturation but not a great deal. It was the filter that gave the surreal effect I was after. I cloned out the rock in the foreground and added the moon. Here they are, side by side, original (left) post processing (right).
