Its a bit of a mess really.

Pixelated sky , blobby dust spots (or clone stamp errors) , over-sharpened trees , foreground a little low on the third and nothing to counterbalance the image.

It does have some impact though , so have a play with this free software (I assume you have a computer as there's nothing in your description) and run through the options that reduce the artefacts your own processing has produced. The effects are global , but if you had read the upload guidelines re-software ability etc I could have showed you how to arrive at the mod as an idea.

I'm not really sure what you were attempting to achieve, Roger, and it would help a lot if you filled in the Description box. It looks almost mono except for the grass and the moon, which is quite a nice effect, but the moon looks slightly unnatural (I thought it was the sun at first glance). Your horizon is sloping and the composition of the trees is not ideal. There is a lot of grain in the sky. The moon is nicely placed to the left, and I like the rays. I would have suggested adding something of interest, like a bird in the sky, but I see that Eviscera has done that.

The bue ting to the sky top right looks like you've been pulling the lumince or curves rather too much resulting in colour noise and loss of gradation. The moon looks like you painted in the colour? I do like the ray effect though. If you could emphasise this and maybe turn it monochrome, fix the sky and as the others suggest, add a bird or two, it would make a good picture. You clearly saw a shot worth taking I think. Brian

ps love the mod Eviscera
