A very charming image with absolut control of the main subject. Justin you are turning in some fantastic and natural images with a unique touch. Possibly one of our most promising young photographers. Again, congratulations on your well earned blue.

nice blending..a little more color and less black on top would of been worse. The tree really stands out this way..good shot.

Yikes...!!! That leaves you as the 2006 ribbon hog right, what is it, 10 now? Wake up Gary!!! Justin has overtaken you! (goes away and types in a PM to Gary to get off his lazy butt and go collecting ribbons again, I can´t have a 19 year old beating me, not good for the ego)

In other words, congrats kiddo, hehe :P

You amaze me. I have no doubt you will... "One day I would love to travel and take photos around the world." It will be with a big pay check for doing it. Great Shot! Congratulations on another ribbon.

Congrats! Looks like I was one of your low voters (scored it a 6). I only did one round of voting so that was first impression and that was probably due to the halo around the tree and also the fact there have been so many of these silhouette shots lately that I probably took off for not being different. Great image otherwise. The stars added a really nice touch that was different and I probably should have bumped it up because of that.

Like the sunset, its colors and the presence of stars. Tree would have been better if it weren't a mostly solid shape. A less solid shape would have given it more character.

Very excellent exposure. Wonderful work here.
