Personally I have owned brick houses because they are lower maintenance. Once you paint it I will have to be repainted every 10-15 years at least. Something to think about. Changing your house color is a big discission. Also verify that your HOA don’t have any issues first. Good Luck.
Your corrections over the face look really good. Can you point me to a YouTube video that is at least and introduction to the "light and shadows" technic you speak of? I tried this image because I expected it was going to be difficult for me. I seem to always have problem trying to clean up...
I gave it my best shot. The glare on the face created a real challenge for me. If you like my results I will try the second image tomorrow. I am sure that some of the more experienced editors could handle this better than my brut force use of the clone and paint tool.
I hesitate to overcharge any original image, but I didn’t like the results of just replacing the moon. When the moon has detail the halo effect didn’t look natural to me, so I provided a second option for you to look at. Hope you like one of them.
