Thanks for the votes and comments.
I am very happy with this new PB...and the high average from commenters (9.2110!! I can't believe it).

I want to congratulate the 3 ribbon winners, all of them great photographers. I was a bit unfortunate to have such brilliant competitors in this same challenge.

Taking this shot was like a dream for me. Had been looking for a place and moment like this and finally found it during a wonderful trip to Cusco-Peru. I had never seen so many stars in my life. The glow behind the photographer comes from the city of Urubamna down the valley. The blueish light behind the far mountains is originated by distant thunderstorms a few valleys away.

Many thanks to my brother Andy for posing and helping me to achieve this image.

Congratulations on the near-ribbon! I agree that the six low scores are bizarre. What score did they give the truly weak entries? Minus-fives?

this shot is so ridiculous, I can't fathom the rationale for the low scores here

Very nice night photo, the glow of light below the near horizon is great. It really emphasizes the foreground nicely. Congratulations on the HM for this beautiful photo!

It's an absolutely clear, sharp image with a perfect technique and perfect esthetic . Nobody can rate this picture a 2 , unless with closed eyes. Congratulations, Alfredo

My brother is a great photographer and this picture proves it !! the four 2 votes probably made the difference, this picture deserved to ribbon. Who and why could possible rate this picture a 2 or a 3 is an enigma, or is it?

Great shot! The glow that looks like it is coming up from below where the photographer is standing adds a nice dimension.

Fantastic! I like how the light comes in from below, like a spaceship has landed in there or something. One of my two 10s for this challenge.

I love the shot, but with the photographer there, it's no longer his dream! Excellent composition! Is light below from a town in the valley or your car using lights for effect? Whichever, it is great.
