Even with a moonlit landscape adding your own light can add a lot of drama to the scene. I used my Xenon light from the lower right of the arch to add long, raking shadows on the bottom the arch, and a another subtle application to the front from camera right as well.

This is 2 exposures, one for the stars at high iso and one for the arch at a low iso

This is one of the locations we will be visiting during my Arches Workshop http://www.davidkinghamphotography.com/workshops
