In the foreground of this shot you can see an anchor and a shed witch resembles what this country economy is made of, fishing, not banking. In the background you can see the Imagine - Peace Tower, a monument build by Yoko Ono in the memory of John Lennon. The light beam shines every year from the 9 October (when Lennon was born) to 8 December (when Lennon was killed). The Imagine - Peace Tower resembles in my mind a ray of hope for the people of Iceland in these troubled times after the collapse of the banking system here in Iceland.

I gave this a 4. I remember wondering why you didn't show the anchor and shed more (flash/longer exposure/light). The mountains in the distance are a good element which again, be nice if included more somehow. I do see the dilemma with the city lights though.
