Congratulations, great shot! The sky is fantastic and that dead tree has so much 'personality'.

Perfectly done. My only qualm is that the exposure time might have been a little too long.

Beautiful - the foreground tree was painted, I assume? I really need to get out and try something like this - it's gorgeous. Voted earlier.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The scraggy and dead tree on the right stands like a silent guardian as I/the audience watches the beauty of the night sky. It is truly awe inspiring to observe the milky way and the sheer amount of stars that blanket the sky.
