Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well

Excellent use of the wonderful creative potential of an ultra wide angle lens, you have made very appealing use of interesting foreground elements with those gorgeous silhouetted tree shapes against the lovely diagonal of the milky way, it works very well indeed. Against all this lovely content the burst of light on the horizon adds another very effective element that brings it all together.

Thanks for your entry Konrad, a very respectable score for an excellent entry, well done

I feel small and insignificant. Nicely done.

Very well done. Deserves a ribbon IMHO.
