I took this the other day and I'm thinking about having it printed, but I wanted some critique before I did so. There is a white speck-like thing in the upper left area, that is the moon: should I keep it or clone it out? Any other thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated.

It is obvious it is the moon - a natural element - so why clone it out? The colours are nice but would probably more impressive when "pushed" a bit. I am not too happy with the composition. The lone bare tree is just a little too close to the edge of the photo. Would have been nicer to have it a little bit more to the right.

I personally would clone it out, It kinda draws my eye.

Same here, kind of distracting.

It appears the voters are split on the issue of the moon. I think I'll keep it. Thanks for all the insight, I'll be taking your suggestions into account when I go and shoot next.

Maybe try to enlarge the moon. It would make a nice print with an over size moon somewhat behind the clouds.

That's an interesting idea. I'll have to try that out. Thanks.

Nice idea... a bigger moon would definitely improve the image. Also if we could move the tree further left without cropping any part of it would also help.

Great colors!

Can you elaborate more? Are you suggesting something along the lines of selecting the tree and moving it over to the left some? I'm not sure I follow your thought.

The moon is fine.....the tree is just too close to the edge....try a test print and see what you think. Moving the tree to the left would make a huge difference in the visual impact.
