I agree about the optimism. The moon is little more than an irritating distraction in an otherwise smooth sky that tries to keep me from focusing on the rocks (yeah, that's a little harsh, but my sentiments lie in that direction). I think the photo would be stronger without the moon. I don't understand the lightness of the rock in the foreground -- is it naturally this light relative to the surrounding rocks, or has additional light been added? I suspect the former, but I'm not sure.
