This was a little difficult as I did not have a remote release handy, so I just held the button down for a while a counted. I thought this was 90 sec, turned out to be 68. Guess I'll have to work on my "1 alligator" some more.

The bright blob is just the moon, if you didn't get that ;)

Congrats on top 10.

You also have the flare patterns around the moon. Fascinating and totally unexpected.

Very nice night time photograph...the light of the moon gives a wonderful hint the majestic surroundings. Beautiful!

This is very nice - the harsh light of the moon perhaps detracts slightly from the subtlety of the rest of the image, but I like it regardless. 8.

Don't get me wrong - not the best nighttime photo I've ever seen but still I think it's worth an 8. I really like your title too.

Nice capture. Is that the moon that's blown out? Very tough exposure. Do like that you have stars and not star trails...
