There was a shooting star that didn't capture, and the lens flare from the headlights were horrible. But, overall I really like this submission, and I didn't even notice the satellite streaking by until I pulled up the picture on my laptop. I took the picture about an hour after sunset, so the sun was still able to reflect off an orbiting satellite.

Looks great I really like how the sky seems to go from day to night.

You had me hunting for that feint line of the satellite. I do like this chosen composition.

Sky with clouds and stars against transmission towers and trees lovely. Mixed thoughts about including the road action -- takes away from the simplicity of the sky composition, but adds color and sense of action that makes it more lively than the average sky-scape.
