Full Moon Service

This is a photo I've been working on from now and then for the past 8 months. Shot in late summer of 2016 a beautiful calm evening in the middle of Sweden. I brought out 7 rice lamps, 7 light bulbs, an electric generator, a car and two models out in a field. The main part that has been retouched in this photo is to replace the rice ball with a moon texture, the light and the mood was very close to what you see in the photo. I would love to hear your thoughts about it. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

My thought in looking at this (and also several other works) is that you go to great lengths to photograph a scene that is a close as possible to your intended image, then just add small touches to manipulate it. I think this sets you apart from (and ahead of) others who combine many unrelated photos. The overall image is just so convincing and solid. It is by turns humorous and sad. Too much of the magic of our natural world has been replaced by technology already! However, it is easy to imagine the dialogue between the two stolid workers, calmly tapping, adjusting, pulling out extra tools, getting the moon to fit 'just right.'
I'm just happy I saw this today. Thanks.

Hello. The only critique I have is that I would of loved to see different shapes of the moon, not just full, but waxing moon, solar eclipse moon, half moon, crescent moon, etc.
Maybe even just a "night sky service" where they sprinkles some stars too.
I really can't find any other things to say except maybe proportion of the person hanging up the moon. I would of liked to see a bit more depth so it seems like this is a BIG job to do because the moon is big as well. Just me. Other than that, just positive comments from here on out. I love the imagination and creativity that went into this. This is an amazing picture! Well done.

Different phases of the moon are represented... You realize that the moon is always a sphere no matter how it is lit, right?  Far left is a crescent moon, just to the right of the red moon is a half moon, etc.

I understand the moon is always a sphere no matter how it is lit... obviously. What I was trying to convey is, the human eye, the positioning of the moon (location) during the different phases are not always viewed as a full round sphere. Sometimes it as viewed as a crescent, etc.. 

*The phases of the Moon depend on its position in relation to the Sun and Earth. As the Moon makes its way around the Earth, we see the bright parts of the Moon's surface at different angles. These are called "phases" of the Moon, hence which is why we see different parts of the moon..  :)

Интересная работа. Добрая и красивая. Идея понятна, но, как известно, у каждого человека возникают свои мысли и чувства при встрече с произведением искусства. Работа не оставляет равнодушным, и это главное!

Really well done and creative. I love this.
