I agree with everything that was said above - I don't know for certain but I believe the spherical shadow is stopping the moon from looking as large as it should. Horo would be the one to ask about this since he is a connesseur of space scenes. But I suspect that the smaller satalite moon would have to be further away to comply with the laws of physics. Not that we "as artists" should be governered by something as mundane as physical considerations, it helps with the illusion sometimes. Oh look, I've said to much without saying anything at all - again... Good work.

Yes, the moons moon is too near to be physically correct. What would help the to give a far impression without moving the moon might be a separate light source that puts the shadow farther in advance. The large moon is very good. I'm amazed how good the spiky terrain emulates trees. The foreground is very good, too. Overall, it's a good work in my oppinion.

That's my first picture here... Moons moon was added in order to "break" vast white area of the big moon - for composition purpose. BTW initially it supposed to be eyeball, but was too bright :)
