    I'm new, so don't take what I say too seriously. I like it -- it's eerie. I would have positioned the moon just a tad higher though. Cool shot!

    It is sorta different Lava, the black ring around the moon's outline bothers me slightly but the composition's interesting, the moon looks like its wearing a big hairy moustache .

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...

    I have no issues with you editing my photos

    Pretty neat lava. Looks like the start of a good horror flick. Like the composition a lot. A little grainy and processed-looking: did you have to do a little work on it? The border of the moon seems a tad soft, maybe you used too long a shutter but still a good shot.

    Thanks for the comments. I bracketed the shots and layered one over the other. It was the only way to expose for the clouds and the moon. One of the shots resulted in a blurry moon, which you can see the edges of. I did sharpen it a little and boosted the vibrance slider. It's a little weird, but what I was aiming for in five minutes of photoshop.

    I like this. I'd maybe have the moon slightly higher But it's cool looking to me.
