I'm kind of surprised of the reactions.
Although it may be debatable if a frame-filling moon represents exquisite taste, my concern is not that.
The problem I have is that the image is a composite, while the market speak implies that it is a single shot. Not only that, the composite is not made from a single position with the same lens at the same time, but with two different lenses from different positions. Going that far down the line, it is not far to a full "clip-art montage", mounting a moon shot separately behind the tree -- I don't think he has done that, but the somewhat manipulative presentation of the image raises my suspicion.
As I see it, landscape photography is much about "being at the right place at the right time". From this aspect this moon shot is technically difficult. You need to find a tree with free sight 2 km away or so (remember this is ~2200 mm focal length), and get the full moon to line up behind it. Good taste or not, it is impressive. But was this real?
Here in Sweden I feel that the culture among photographers is that the documentary aspect is important, even for landscape photographers. You may do adjustments, some dodge-and-burn and HDR and stitching (you still were at the right place at the right time), but if it is a multiple viewpoint composite or largely a photoshop creation you better say it and certainly not market it implying it is a single shot or you may severely harm your credibility and career.
It is not only about the resulting picture. You can make artificial diamonds look really nice, but still people pay a lot more for the the real thing. It is the same about photography, you can compose a great looking picture in photoshop where you did not be at the right place at the right time, but that is still not the same thing as really being there - which is valued much higher. Still you would be able through market speak to convince non-photographers that it is real and sell it at that price.
Lik's picture here is a special case. Probably the moon shot was at the right place at the right time. But everything outside the moon (also the tree outside it) is taken from another viewpoint, with another lens. The composite is also highly unrealistic (wide angle and extreme tele in same shot, moon inside atmosphere) so it is not just a "HDR" type of shot when multiple shots were taken to overcome camera limitations. So parts of it is good photography, and part of it is on the way down the slippery slope towards clip-art montage, at the same time marketed in a way that may cause non-photographer customers believe that they buy a true single shot photograph.
