Moonlit flag and starry composite

Just for the fun of it, I made this composite photo. It consists of 3 photos I took at different times last year and this year. The exaggerated Moon was taken a couple months ago, while the stars were taken last year when I was in Chile, South America. The foreground was the opening ceremony for the Sertoma Air Show in Lafayette, LA (last year). The photo was desaturated (except for the stars and flag) to give it that "lit by the Moon" feel. I exaggerated the size of the Moon for fun, but kept it on the side of the photo so as to correspond with the shadows on the ground.
