I would remove the stars in the black part of the crescent moon.

Other than that, pretty cool.

I was going to say that, but refrained...I think scientific accuracy is less important in this case than the overall feel of the photo (IMHO)

While scientific correctness is not the primary concern of many photos I think that if it is possible to make it correct without detracting from the feeling, then why not do it? I don't think removing the stars would change the feeling of this picture.

It would prevent people like me from having something to criticize though. ;)

Nonetheless, I still like it.
Cheers.

You've got a point, but for me the star in the crescent is a little touch of unreality which reminds the viewer they are not really looking at the sky, but an approximation of the sky. It creates a certain feel by being almost but not quite real: emotionally you are seeing a sky, but the rational part of your mind knows there is something wrong...

Thanks much for all the comments. Right, there IS a "fault in the reality". Interestingly, it can perceived as wrong or as "added interest". Now, I am tempted to remove the stars in front of the dark moon, but somehow I also see the interest in leaving this little fault to send s slight signal that this scene is actually not mainly trying to look real. It is much more a visual metaphor than a documentary shot.

cheers

Thanks, LaMyxine.

So, here's the "corrected" shot for comparison.
