I gave you a 7 in the challenge, but much, MUCH, prefer your original out of the camera with its stronger blues and deeper shadows.

it was torches(flashlights) in my hands an LED little maglite the blue one and a big 4 D maglite the yellow light. i dont really know post porcessing so i messed up i think, i tried to layer mask in the rock at front to get a better light but somehow messed the sky up juliboc says

with hindsight i should have maybe masked the light tails into the second picture as the sky etc is much better on the second image, live and learn though

heres the original straight out of the camera

heres the one i used to try and light the front rock better

not sure how i messed the sky up :( pretty disappointed with the score, average vote from participants and commentors was 7 non participants was 5.8? best photo ive taken for a while but obviously not glossy enough, better start learning all about post processing to get the DPC look.

this from the same night was my alternative choice

here are all of them from this set //www.flickr.com/photos/cyberprop/sets/72157627666890159/

This looks like science fiction. Very unusual. The stars are odd -- dotted lines rather than the usual star trails from long exposure. Is this HDR from multiple shots?

There are ghosts! Or someone threw flashlights off the edge ;-) Weirdly interesting.

I find the scene a bit confusing with the light trails
