I am glad this post was helpful. Please let me know if you get to a presentable result.
I am going to present a couple interpretations of a December Moonrise on the Facebook Arcanum page in a bit. Thanks again for the tips. I wish I had an image as suitably dramatic as this one, but it’s always nice to have the knowledge of what can be done if and when I enter into a scene such as that.
Just a beautiful image and great breakdown of the steps you went through to achieve this look and feel for your photograph.

Excellent! I appreciate the way you went through this step by step. I love the tonal work and I was pleased to see your finishing touches as those are reminders for me as well, when working in subtle gradients like this. It gives me an idea to try this with my b&w and color versions of December Moonrise I did from 2013. I like both, but a treatment like this might give me a third alternative I hadn’t considered. Thanks for the tutoring!
