I am going through and leaving comments on photos I voted low. Biggest problem here is that it doesn't meet the challenge of shooting something from the perspective of the ground up. This is a shot pretty much on the level with your subject. So there's a big mark against though I suppose hairs can be split and degrees of ascent argued. Setting that aside, the foreground lighting detracts from the lights in the one house which would otherwise draw my attention quickly and make me think about that part of the photo. What's happening in there, that house looks alive, etc - things that let me take this photo and draw my own conlusions about it. Also looks like the photo is a bit out of focus or suffers from a little motion blur, hard to say, but nothing on that house is looking to crisp. A lot of that combines together to make the only focal point here the two pieces of overexposed light by the door and in the window - not very interesting.

Good effort.

Just my opinion but the photo lacks sharpness, appears fuzzy. The branches above the roof line toward the back have a "halo" of darkness around them. Good showing of stars.

Not a whole lot of up, and a slightly fuzzy look overall.

I love the details of the stars, the lighting is a little bright and red. But it's nice
