    I laughed at SteveBee's comment! He makes a valid point but one that didn't occur to me. I thought this was an impressive capture for the detail and colour all the same.

    That moon looks awfully big! How come the moon is closer to Chicago than Atlanta? Beautiful lighting, colors, sharpness.

    The combinationof the two photos has produced a great result. I'm impressed bt the amount of detail and colour you have captured.

    The moon makes this image for me. You have to do a composite to ever get the moon like this but it sure makes for a great image. Love the color in the sky too.

    fine cityscape. i've rescued or enhanced a few photos with moon placement so don't take offense if i nitpik. you know a full moon could never be in that position above a dawn or dusk sky. but, it is attractive anyway. nice composition.

    Never like the moon pated in like this, come across fake. You also have lots of blown highlights, could have tried HDR here. Otherwise a nice capture.

    Nice color and composition, though I'd prefer to see some perspective correction on the buildings.

    Nice colourful cityscape at night. Collage perfectly seemless. I do find the whites a bit blinding.

    Great concept. Good composition and clarity. Somehow feels a little surreal .

    A familiar looking scene, Robert. Well composed, vibrant colors, very sharp -- all beautiful. If you were going for kitschy then the moon is perfect, otherwise not so much.

    A classic set of exposures well integrated.

    A composite right? You pasted the moon into the landscape.The moon looks too big and has no glow around it.
