Many thanks for the positives and the Oobie!
The border was probably unnecesssary - here's the unedited original:

With auto levels and a dollop of noise reduction you get this:

which might even have got higher votes, but hey...

I get a strange thrill when I see this image. It's like when Van Gogh painted those potato peelers. This is what the night sky is *really* like. You are a realist photographer. Who knew that would be a rarity?

And the night sky is a potent symbol for the Universe, i.e. That Which Is Bigger Than Us. It gives me pause to think about how empty it is.

But last night I saw a five year old blind girl playing piano so beautifully that the notes appeared to be weeping. So just listen to what music lies in darkness.

What’s the big deal a sky full of stars “oh wait” (squirt- squirt wipe-wipe) ahhh, now I get it..

Another very underwhelming shot next to the eagle nebula and others.

Too black for me. More subject may work better.

I think you have a hot pixel there! ;D

im not sure the border works for this, the image seems a bit dark overall but I am liking the single star/planet

Very minimalist. I think I see a border which only distract from what little is there -- and the fact that it's only really visible (for me anyway) in one corner. Still, I like the concept and composition.

Interesting astronomically but not much of a photo.

One dot of light? I really hope you aren't anticipating a high score with this.

Nice single star.

How I wonder what you are.... Mostly because I can't see anything in this image.

I love this, it's excellent.

I almost gave this 10 for humour/originality/thinking outside the box etc. In the end settled on 7 - I think the winner ought to have more going for it technically/composition-wise than just a good idea. Fair?

Congrats on following the challenge. That one lone star certainly tells a story. Perhaps more impact with a tighter angle or a telephoto, or telescope...something to make it bigger.

Fantastic. Probably won't score well, but you knew that already. I get it, and love it. I'm giving it a 10 for the emotion and creativity. Now get the song out of my head!

I like it, less is more. 8

Had to look for a minute - great minimalism and composition. The blue frame is a bit redundant, in my opinion, but hey - love the image, nonetheless.

I have many shots of the night sky with just one star visible. Love the simplicity and the hint of trees/hills/?? along the edge.

This picture is too dark IMHO.

Minimalist sky.

Well, you got a good laugh from me! Good thing I wasn't eating. Pure genius. Focus, composition, colours - spot on;) You just have to hope that people don't have dirty screens (mine is a borderline case). A 10 for creativity (and to balance the poor sods who don't get it...).

good idea!

Is it the sky....or just a white spot on your black wall? When I look closer....I see the blue border too!
