Stunning. Beautiful. The horizon is ever-so-slightly unlevel, but it takes nothing from this image. A solid nine for you.

Lovely gradient in the sky, though it looks like you had to amp contrast WAY up. Cool night sky - a 7 from me.

Great shot! Looks like a diorama. I particularly like the gradation of blues in the sky and the crisp lines of the mountains. My favorite. 10

This has got to be the luckiest catch in the world! I'm jealous of your Southern Skies and hope to see them in person someday. It would have been nice to see the Large Magellanic Cloud or Omega Centauri but I will certainly take this Magical photo! It's nothing less then 10. Great work!

Beautifully painted, and I hope you made a wish when you saw the falling star.
The moon is not in par with the rest, so maybe cropping it out should be considered.

Very good, well composed and beautiful.

Is that Venus? Beautiful image.

Absolutely suberb by its minimalistic and classy composition, and this coloured sky, travelling the whole lenght between night and day.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The long exposure makes the salar surface look like a gray border. Under advanced editing rules you could have solved that problem (I mean , in case you agree it is a problem) in diferente ways:
a) change the color of that area, using any spot editing technic, it could be channel mixer, selective color, etc.
c) crop out that area (this could have been done under basic too)
Any of these after leveling by rotating approx 1 deg clockwise. That's my two cents.
It is still a nice image though
Good luck!!

Surreal. The lower third is stunning, the rest I'm not so sure about. The stars look an awful lot like hot pixels to me.

Since the moon was in last quarter crescent during the time of challenge, what is that big shiny globe in the sky.
