I like how youve included the Moon in this, very nice.

All it needs for me is to have exposure increased about +1. Shooting into the sky will make the cameras meter underexpose, which is what you have here.

Quick and easy mod uploaded with that added exposure, and a little sharpening,.

Well done.

A good clear and clean shot, Garrie, with an excellent sky background that has no distractions.
I don't know if the wheel was moving at the time, but your shutter speed has dealt with it if that was the case.

Judging by the interesting shadows, it looks as if it was a bright sunny day, though the image looks quite underexposed.

There is a large dust bunny middle left, in the sky. Unless it was just a mark on your lens?

I tried an alternative crop, mainly because I wanted to see a full and complete car at the bottom, so I went for just the two at the top. Simply a suggestion, an idea.
I wanted a square format, and so I had to move the moon. In the process, I made it a bit largerSmile.
I brightened the image, did a contrast adjustment, and sharpened, then removed the dust bunny.

I like it as it is. I think the slight under exposure sets off the cars against the deep blue sky. I would have under exposed too. A figure, seemingly marooned in one car would have been interesting.

And I'd probably have underexposed and used a polarising filter...

I did a crop a bit like Pamela's, though instead of moving the moon ('Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth!'), I went for a bit of dodging to make it more obvious.
