Thanks for the score and comments!
Forgot to mention it's a self portrait, taken with a wide angle, so I can get the big moon look.

Well, this looks very well to appear on my FP and top three nonetheless :) Happy about the scores I'm receiving.

This is the original shot:

I blew up a white balloon, then lit it from behind with a led flashlight that I use for shooting at night. Then it was just a question of taking a shot of the moon and superimpose on top of the balloon (masking out the fingers, etc). I needed to get the light on the face just right, and that was possible with the balloon in place.

No doubt this one had to get the blue. Simple but very strong. Congrats.
