well this is again me trying to just enter more challenges...So 1986, hard to get a nuclear explosion so why not a huge film Top Gun. This is nothing like i wanted it to be, but i could only get one american flag and to get a decent reflection i had to hold the glasses thus the tight crop.

Nice idea. I missed it on the first viewing, but caught it on the second viewing. Maybe it would help to put a gradient on the background flag image, so that the reflection in the sunglasses is more even, with more light to the field of stars.

Past or present HP? I like the reflection and the black on black design. I'd have given the glasses a little more room on the left. Good exposure.

Maybe a bit of a stretch for the challenge, but technically well done

Almost missed the flag reflection, would be nice if the image was not quite so dark. Nice set-up.

Very subtle, yet well done image. I really like the reflections in the glasses. This is an image that take awhile to really see. At the initial view, the composition is strange and unsettling. After seeing the reflection, it pops into understanding. 6

Pity about the typo in the title.

10, minus 8 for spelling danger wrong, just kidding ;) Really cool. Think it would have been better if you could have isolated the sunglasses, and also bring it fully into the picture. Going with a 7 on this one, gj.

What's a "dnager" zone?

Not sure what event you're referencing; not enough context. Like the reflection in the sunglasses but not sure cutting off the edge did anything for the composition.

Great pic, meets challenge. Is typo intended? Never was my pick for eyewear, but neither hanges my view of your submission ...
