    Lovely work Chen-ou! The juxtaposition here is excellent. The magnitude of the harvest moon really underscores the image of the camp swelling with survivors. I also like how the harvest moon, which normally represents a season of bounty (in terms of crops) is used here to contrast the loss the the survivors have endured. Very nice!
