I find it truly interesting that you chose a desert floor and how the light effects it. Truly beautiful not to mention clean and crisp.
The idea as well struck me for I have heard 'the man on the moon' but I have never thought of one stealing it because most talk about stealing stars.
The technique is interesting and lighting as well but the thing that irks me (just a little bit) is that the light beam's angling on left side of the moon seems a bit off were as the right side are perfectly blended.
I can see why or where they are coming from but the angling just seems off.
Over all I love this picture.
