unless their are two suns or two Moons on this earth

their are other mistakes in this image
this is to just name the most obvious
Your analysis is extremely unsophisticated. And unconvincing (not least because there was no Sun in the sky when the image was made).

My analysis of the"moon waterfall moon bowl and Aurora" This is a fake.
You stated that there was no sun in the sky, ( where you their), then there must've been a reason that their would be shadows located on the right and the left of the picture indicating by arrows, See( http://gallery.me.com/artist17#100914
) that there were 2 sources of light. Either there were 2 suns casting shadows in 2 different directions or there were 2 moons casting shadows equal to the brilliance of the sun in 2 directions see the right side of the picture and the left side of the picture.
The waterfall is blurred which happens when you extend the exposure beyond a minute and it has a shadow on the left which is caused by the sun on the right-hand side of the picture. Indicating that the main light source came from the right side of the picture. This would indicate that the sunlight was coming from the right. But then how do you explain the shadows underneath the rock ledges and the rest of the mountain they come from all different sides. Also how do you explain that there are no shadows on the green grass which appeared to have been taken when the Sun was at its zenith.
I have been a artist painter and photographer for 35 years any artist could tell you that there are only one single light source and that this casts a shadow that is one third or less than the brilliance on the brightest side of the object. So this is a fake as a matter fact as of right poor fake I've also been working with Photoshop since it 1st came out and this is an example of poor Photoshop skills and poor analysis.
I know its very hard to admit when you have been duped but this one was easy
