Is that supposed to be a city in the background? Because the perspective looks somewhat off and the size seems way too small. It's better than the SD equivalent, but still, it looks wrong to me.
I may be mistaken, but I see no *serious* problems with either perspective or scale in that shot. I think it's a little hard to judge size when we don't know how large those eroded laccoliths behind the city are intended to be. Remember that this is an alien world and our common Earth sense about distances and sizes could be way off. That main formation behind the city lights could be 1000 meters high.

I do, however, think it's a little weird that the cloud seen in front of the moon in the sky doesn't appear to be in the reflection in the sea/lake.
