Thanks everyone for the great votes and comments.

I was on a river cruise through Germany in December and this was one of the ports. Hawaii doesn't have cold winters so the trees never shed their leaves. I thought these trees looked really interesting (and creepy) with the bare limbs. I'm not sure but I think they're chestnut trees?

The one thing I wished was that the moon wasn't out so there'd be more stars in the sky. The moon does add to the picture, though.

Thanks again.

Intriguing trees with this light. Well done and congrats!

No offense intended but I feel a bit like if I walk that path I will be abducted by aliens. There are faces in the trees watching me and the end of the tunnel looks a bit like someone standing there. This is my favorite in this challenge.

I really like this lit up corridor of primitive-looking trees leading past a highlighted bench to an indeterminate destination. I can make believe that those are shooting stars and not contrails.

It almost looks surreal, yet it's grounded by the bench. Lovely!!

Except for the slightly greenish tinge in the tree highlights, I LOVE this

I like this a lot. The detail in the sky and the balancing of the trees together with the cool light and the warmer artificial light on the tress makes for an interesting image with a story.

Surely a nice shot. But it has a few flaws: too much light on the right (I know it's not easy to control lights like this), composition is rather strange and there are few stars and they seem, at least at 800px, distorted.

Feels like the trees are about to come to life and eat you.
