Thanks everyone for votes and comments!

It's been a while since my last ribbon.

This has been taken at Cala Luna in Sardinia. 13kms of hiking to go and sleep there. I am working on a wonderful project about that amazing region during the last month.

The man in the image it's me. I took it with my D750 and 14-24. It was a very dark place (it's taken from a sea cave) but there was full moon (I was sorry about that, Milky Way could have been stunning). I don't remember the shutter speed but I am quite sure it was close to 5 seconds.

Sorry for filling out late the notes but I am at Shetland Islands with VERY poor connection... I have always loved to explain my shots, everyone knows that here.

I did the math.

If I'd given you two points higher... you'd have been at 7.026.

And that's still the Yellow. Whew!

Not too shabby... the Yellow! :D

I totally missed my vote on this, Alex. Please forgive me.

I should have given you a point or two higher.

I think my monitor shows me things at night differently than in the day.

I hope two points would not have changed your placement.

In any case... congratulations on your finish!

This is a very neat looking photograph that is very well exposed with great focus. I like the framing of the ocean and sky through the opening of the rocks/cave.

8 that could have been higher had you removed the white bar (ship?) on the horizon and lost the sharpening/clarity halos.

Your B&W was far more interesting in my opinion. This is definitely a very good shot with a beautiful light
