Simply beautiful. Very tight at the top considering having a bit of stars as well which feeling wise just needs a tad more "space" 8

Highly unusual scene. Exceptionally well photographed. Would also be nice to paint this with light and a shorter exposure for a completely different feel and impact. Great work. (Post previous comment...I now know where this is, it was nagging at me when I saw the dead trees and mountains...I drove past there in Dec 2010...near Villiersdorp, Western Cape on the way to Hermanus, I forget the name of the dam?)

Beautifully done!

great exposure on the land elements. my only wish is that the moonlight was from a direction in back of you so the details on the tree could be seen. 8

Love that tree (I've seen it before I think).

the best I've seen thusfar. Wish I could achieve that level of sharpness. Wonderful composition too. My first ten

Amazing... I love night shots, and I wish I was near a place like this with such clear sky and no noise pollution. Beautiful composition!
