This is a photo that no one will have no opinion about. I like the velvet feel of the night. I like the stars. I like the composition. Bumping my previous score.

I like the lighting on the horizon. The lighting in the front sucks me in and underexposes the background a little bit. Good Luck. 5.

This is one of my favorites, just enough light to make a refection. Beautiful shot.

Cool image, a slightly shorter exposure length would help. The stars look blurry because the exposure is long enough to capture movement but not create streaks and short enough to show the brightness but look blurry. This kind of distracts from the nice foreground elements.

a very beautiful location - the light on the dock and the house across the way adds such a nice depth to the image. I am not sold on the streaks of stars - either arches of stars or points would have been better IMO.

Could be my monitor but it looks too dark to me.
