"Oft in the tranquil hour of night,
When stars illume the sky,
I gaze upon each orb of light,
And wish that thou wert by."
George Linley

Last day of voting and after being my new PB all week it just slipped to the #2 spot by 7/1000ths.

The 'orb' is a Lee filter system lens cap stuck on a lens hood and taped to a Yongnuo 560IV speedlight. Then it was just a case of fitting myself in the frame and trying to grasp the orb.

Oh, glasses are pinhole glasses and great for blind peeps like me (in good light).

Congrats on the well-deserved blue. Fine tinkering with light, both obvious and subtle. A good case can be made for the quality of the original, as might be expected, but blacking out the background is a key to the final superb result.
