Never seen such an experiment. Nice idea.
* You may like to fix the horizon.
* You may also consider decreasing stars' size for a more natural look.

A very good example for what one can make with the software from today, Jack.
The only thing I miss are the much more stars, they are to see so up in the north as the Lofoten, where the sky seems to be much nearer as here in Germany.
Interesting to see the same place in day and quasi-night-shot, and this in "one" photo.
Good idea, well done

Excellent idea! It is nice to see how imaginative and creative we are getting. The nec plus ultra would have been of course to paste in the night sky of that lattitude. But as my old mother used to say: "They'll never be happy! Give them a hand and they will claim the whole arm."

In order to fake it operfectly you had to add the reflections of the moon and the stars in the water. You also had to blur the lighthouse's light a bit.
Amazing post processing, Jack, and a wonderful result. I like it very much.

I like the juxtaposition of these two pics. I like both of these pictures. Great!

Cool stuff, Jack. The unimproved day version is a beautiful "traditional" landscape view, and your night version is sheer fun. Agree with Sherlock Yitzhak's comments, but hey if going to nasa.gov and fetching the moon to insert it into your pix doesn't deserve full score then I don't know what else does ;-) Well done, very creative.

Very nice work Jack - and practical - I saved you and us for an extra trip to the north. Great to see what can be done with a photo - Ok perhaps a moon reflection would be even better like Yitzhak surest - but I like it, thanks for sharing.

Jack, you did a great job. At least that's what I think. Through technology, you concocted something beautiful. And, after all, this is what we are looking for - beauty - isn't it?
I wish I had the ability you have to deal with PhotoShop or whatever browser you used.

Very interesting experience
I prefer of course the night one with the fake Orion constellation.
