    You've achieved a wonderful effect with the bracketing and whatever pp you used. The composition is beautiful; the detail excellent, and the moonlight lends an ethereal quality to the whole scene.

    Very striking image, though the lighting makes it seem a bit unreal.

    Jade O. -- I appreciate the your comment on the tree. I didn't have much choice. Moving in front of the tree puts me too close to get the shot and moving back is even worse. Pasting in the Moon just is not the type of manipulation I'm willing to do.

    A touch HDRish for my personal taste, but I have to admit the result is dramatic and interesting.

    An effective use of HDR but I am bothered by the overwhelming tree on the left which is blocking out the front of the church. Maybe shoot closer and add the moon later? Impressive photo treatment all the same.

    Robert: The slope of the ground is natural. I'm shooting upward from a lower level. The perspective is natural. Would you correct the converging lines of a railroad track? This is no different.

    I'm not a big fan of the HDR look, but I can't argue the dramatic result.

    Striking image in the style of A.N. Other, which is a compliment. I wonder if this could be slightly improved by using transform - skew to straighten the right and left sides of the church and to level the sloping landscape in the foreground? Just a thought.
