Obviously, I'm humbled by the constructive comments and now know a few things for the next challenge:
1. Don't rush the submission
2. Work on resolution issues
3. Clean the sensor!
4. Post processing needs a ton of work...
Thanks for the feedback...

Rather pixilated and some sensor dust but other than that it would have made a neat photo.

What did you do with the processing? Or did you crop it too much? Really a pity, could have been a great image. And what about those spots at the top, is it dust on the sensor? You can remove them under the Advanced ruleset, you know.

The processing on this really throws me off. It almost hurts my eyes.

The scene is lovely and you've composed it well.
