Looks natural, cannot tell that you put the moon in. This is done all the time even with film. So to me it is very exceptable. Nice work. Can't wait, as I will be going there for my anniversary in May.
there was a very high, thin layer of clouds that when put through the HDR program got very grainy - I did some blurring to smooth it. There was a fine line - too much and the sky went flat and it wasn't in reality and not enough gave more of what you're calling a painted feel...so this was a happy medium to me
