I thought this scene will be very good match for this challenge. When I shot it I could not even see the light in the house, let alone the house or the trees. It was a great surprise to find out that so much detail was there.

Thanks for all the comments!! Especially to Shez and all Aussies!

Nice to wake up to a Blue Ribbon with my city in the background while visiting the city of love - Paris :)

PS I did shorten the comments above - there is a kangaroo on the right of the door.

Very very nice Margaret. What a strange/unusual setting though. Who lives there one wonders. Under the outer rim of the big city.

I didn't even make the correlation between this image and your "Us and Them" Skyline entry until 21_N.gif Melethia pointed it out. LOL

Truly a gorgeous image, I was so amazed when I voted on it, you definitely deserved this ribbon.

PS: Is it just me, or did you have a statement on your comment box about the shadow of a deer being next to the house? Maybe I dreamt that but I could've sworn I saw you posting that somewhere. O.O

I dont need to tell you that this is probably the winner.. And I`m thinking that on a challenge with so few entries it could well be up there as one of the highest scoring entries ever... PM me and let me know. 10 all the way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2011 02:48:19 PM
I really like how you have two settings in one here. This is unique and works really well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2011 05:13:26 AM
Very nice contrast of two different places of living!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2011 06:04:18 PM
I voted earlier, but I just have to come back and comment.
This is my favorite photo of the challenge and I sincerely hope it gets the blue ribbon. The contrast between the city and rural area is masterful and its just a fantastic editing job all around. I am trying to figure out how you exposed this so wonderfully that the "rural" is bright enough, but the city not overexposed. Just an awesome job all around.
10 and fav from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2011 04:52:00 PM
This is a very moving photograph. At least it is to me.

Looks like Flat Rock Lookout to me,a nice night image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2011 08:20:59 AM
You must never leave this hill :)
But another beautiful photo. I think I may actually like this one more than many of the later fog shots, as it's much more unique.

Not sure if it's me or the image, but the horizon does not look level. Nice perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2011 07:26:54 PM
All I can say is HOLY WOW! The shot of the house and the hillside without the city would even stand alone as a HOLY WOW
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2011 06:51:02 PM
I know I've seen this photo before - perhaps under different lighting - definitely a magical point of view.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2011 03:23:48 PM
Fantastic juxtaposition of city and rural, makes for a great and interesting shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2011 09:55:48 AM
I knew I saw this before, the Flat Rock Lookout from MargaretN, it is great again,. I was very impressed during skylines, Its is just as impressive at night, with the midnight purples and mysterious trees.

This has to be Margaret's photo. Beautiful image and has Melbourne in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2011 05:40:40 AM
I think I would have liked this more if the city was left out. Nice work.
