Just some frost on the car's hood in the morning light. Hit the bokeh jackpot on this one :-)

Had the 20mm extension tube on.

Don't know how this will look on uncalibrated monitors but it's pretty outer-spacey on mine.

PP - cropped, curves, increased saturation and contrast, resized, sharpened, added border.

4.2?? Ouch...

This is about as dark as you can go without being too dark, so I bet you're right about the calibration issue for some voters. It's a pity they missed out on how pretty this is.

I really expected this to be a boring shot, but I agree, "Ooooh, sparkly!" All the different colors are quite interesting.

Looks like a galaxy of sparks. Nicely finished off with the frame.
