    Nope, not necessarily natural looking, more just natural lighting. I'm not sure I can do the changing of the focal lengths on LF. I think it might look really weird. Plus, my long focal length on this camera is only 355 vs the 270 I would use, not much difference, but an interesting thought nonetheless.

    I'm not trying to tell anyone to do anything. I am just listing some tools that can be used. How or whether you choose to employ them to achieve your desired aesthetic values is something that I personally would not attempt to tell you, though there are many who would. I figured it was a given that I was just offering up some techniques without straying into the realm of offering aesthetic advice.

    As for the changing of focal lengths, it would look similarly weird on any format.

The moon itself (full) should have an exposure of '125 at f/11 on a clear night. Make the moon shot first, sit around and twiddle your thumbs until it moves out of the composition, then make the shot of the landscape. You can even cheat and use a longer lens to shoot the moon and a wider lens to shoot the landscape.
    I'd do it the other way around: shoot the landscape at dusk, then put in the moon later.

    It will always show that it is a cheat, though. The direction of the light will give it away (not just when you shoot at dusk first).

    You could also shoot the landscape, including moon, when it isn't dark yet and the moon is already out (or when the moon is still out and it's getting light again).
    But only, of course, if you can then still get the moon over the landscape where you want it to be.
    You will also need to be far north enough this time of year to have short nights.

    Yes. I like shooting the moon and/or using multiple exposures using dusk light (or early morning light).

    It does not look the same as a landscape shot at night and illuminated by the full moon, though. This looks like a very eerie daylight as opposed to a soft dusk light.

    Here is a page that I found in a quick search: http://brokentripod.com/MOONLIGHT2/LOTMoon2.html. Unfortunately the pix are of low quality and there is not a ton of technical information, but it gives you the idea.
