Sometimes you capture a shot for a challenge that you know just isn't fair. This is one of those times.

Wow, 13 years, and your last ribbon was a photo of stars, too. Obviously you should get outside more often. I'm impressed that you dared to venture into Pixinsight's deep, muddy waters.

Here's a little trick you might find useful... in Photoshop, select Color Range > Highlights with a pretty big fuzziness value to catch most of the stars. Select > Modify > Expand by 4 or 5 pixels, then hide the selection. Choose Filter > Other > Minimum with a radius of about 0.4 pixels (preserve roundness), and see if that helps.

I'm surprised you didn't post the other version as an outtake. It's beautiful.

Your effort paid off... you won a meteor challenge without any meteors. Congrats on the new personal best!

The only great capture of a Perseid in this challenge. Pity that it's cut off, and I wish you had brightened the scene to bring out the Milky way and foreground trees, but kudos for the best meteor of the bunch!

Lovely night sky photo, especially with the water reflections. You even caught a glimpse of the Andromeda Galaxy between the top center trails. The bad news is that there aren't any Perseids in it. Those streaks are almost certainly satellite trails (the one at top left could be an airplane). The radiant for this meteor shower is at the top edge of this frame along the Milky Way, so any Perseids would trace back to that point. If you look through your other shots, you may find some Persieds, although with such a wide field all but the brightest ones will look like hairlines or a very thin teardrop shape. Any meteor trails at top center would be very short since they're shooting directly at you.

Having seen an outtake, I know who took this photo and won't vote on it. Given the tiny pool of entries and DPC's penchant for dark, moody scenes, there's a good chance you reel in a red (or even blue) ribbon in the Perseid Meteor Shower challenge without capturing a single Perseid meteor. Well played!

Good effort even if the meteors eluded you.

Not quite sure what I'm looking at here... an illustration of some sort? There aren't any significant galaxies near this shower's radiant point, and I don't recognize the star patterns.
