As a physicist, I felt compelled to enter this challenge. I even decided to execute a staged photoshoot (which I almost never do these days). My idea was to shoot a wheelchair against a starry sky. Unfortunately, by the time I found the wheelchair and got around to do it (3 days before rollover), normally clear San Diego sky got cloudy and remained completely overcast up until the deadline. So, I had to come up with Plan B :).

ETA: Thank you all for the great score and nice comments! Looks like plan B worked out okay... ;) I still wonder, if my plan A worked, would I finally be able to break into that magical 8+ territory (I was tantalizingly close for several days)?... we'll never know

As the one who suggested this challenge, I will say that this was my favorite entry, and I'm glad it wound up at the top of the stack. Really well done!
Thank you Fritz for the comment and for the inspiration to make this shot ...But if you suggested the topic, how come that you didn't enter? That is not fair! ))
