Woah. Helluva night shot. Loving the star flare. Great perspective, lines and tones. Good luck. Just thought I'd tell you this is one of two 10's I gave in the challenge.

I'm getting a dark prison feel, and I like that. Dark, mysterious and powerfull. Love the light from the island, and your editing is sublime.
