I like it.

The positives - good WB, good sky and lit clouds from the ambient light below and moonlight above.

The negatives - there's a bit of distortion around the verticals on the buildings, foreground right. Also, there's the Sigma 10-20 characteristic of bad 6 pointed star bursts around point light sources - my pet hate on my version of the lens.

Here's my version of those 6 pointed 'start bursts' from the Sigma 10-20:

This is at F14, but it doesn't get better the further you stop down.

IMO it's good value for daylight but a pain at night - you've kept flaring under control but you really have to watch out for it at night with this lens.

Looks good, but I'm not sure about the moon's reflection...

I really like it; I love the effect of the long exposure on the clouds!
