I understand your desire to learn. However, your choice of word (i.e., doctoring) is a direct accusation instead of an effort to seek the process.

Stay well and keep sharing.

Is that a quote from Star Wars?

Its a cool shot indeed, but it seems the moon is disproportionately big to the skyline...

The sky is very black, I am now curious also, is it photoshoped or not? The moon looks very large for the skyline.

helluva telephoto to get the moon that size....what lens were you using? exposure time?

it's a beautiful shot. :)

he said he used a polarizer....that would eliminate the glare and darken the sky....just compensate for it being darker with a longer exposure that removes what everybody says makes it look photoshopped.

sounds like a cool tip! :)

With the exception of the tip of the big building and a little bit of the building on it's right, the reflection is a perfect pixel for pixel reflection along one perfect horizontal line in the image. All the lights in the top match up to the exact pixel position to their reflection on the bottom.

If this isn't photoshopped, it's a near perfect exposure.

i think it's a great shot, but i can't help but wonder about the moon as well. aside from the size which i can imagine, and can understand the reflection with a polarizer, but the fact that the moon (which is brighter in general) and the skyline (which is darker in general) are both exposed perfectly makes me think maybe they're two images stacked on top of each other? typical moon shots to capture that detail are taken around 1/125, where a city scape could be taken anywhere from 10+ seconds.
not accusing, and it's a good capture regardless, just sayin.

But polarisers only darken the sky when the sun is in the sky, and it's at 90 degrees, don't they?

I agree this looks odd because to get the moon this large you would need a long telephoto and the buildings are not consistent with this.

Before the OP gets defensive and paranoid again, this is not a personal attack or an insult, just a comment.

All that aside, I'd like to see the image with a slightly bluer sky.

Wonderful image.

There was a lunar eclipse last month which would bring down the brightness of the moon a great deal (and the color of the moon here is consistent with that) and might explain why the reflection isn't there.

Here is an image I found of an eclipsed moon rising over a city:

Edit: This doesn't appear to have been taken during an eclipse, but lots of gunk in the atmosphere can produce the orange color as well.

It's a bit hard to judge but the size of the moon in the OP may be a bit big compared to the buildings but is not unreasonably so, IMO. I am a bit perplexed by the perfect building reflections (except for the one tiny wavy bit). I do not think that manipulations distract from an image but can produce slices of what reality should be. No need to get defensive if you fix the moon to be the proper size or make the reflections what they should have been.

George a polarizer simply masks light that is coming from a "different" angle than it is adjusted to. So, yes, it work with reflections from water among other things, like the sky. It depends on the angle of the light beams.

The moon always looks much bigger when it is near the horizon.
