    Should I darken the clouds?

    Would it be better to have the cloud white or darken them a little bit?

    Agreed; depending on how you layered your .psd (Assuming you used Photoshop), you could apply a grey filter onto it, making it darker. I'd think a charcoal grey or the shade of pencil lead should look about right; too dark and it doesn't become visible enough, and too bright means it stand out too much. Make sure the subject of the image is identifiable.

    if you are going to make the moon's aura brighter, might want to increase the brightness of the moon itself as well; a brighter aura means brighter moon.

    Just keep in mind that that even though the water's face is turbulent, it should still give a general reflection of the sky. You may need to do some rendering in that case.

    Darken the clouds WAYYYYYY MORE.

    You should only see a silhouette of silver of the top of the clouds; the bottom should be stark gray-to-black. Burn tool the moon a little in it's craters to add deeper contrast, and epic dodge various edges on the surface of the water. your moon is really close to the water; it should be a lot brighter Smile

    Also: Use the eraser and erase a few of the stars surrounding the moon; make the stars a bit more transparent, and the sky show more around the moon. The moon's glow intercepts star-light within the sky, which is why it's rare to see stars near the moon if the star itself isn't Mars or some other close-proximity planet.

    It looks good so far! Very Happy
