One more shot from my visit to my home country Iceland. Taken on the hills around Reykjavik on a moonlit night. This was a hard earned shot because my car slit of the road which was covered in glass polished ice.

Editing:
1.Increased curves, contrast and apllied Clarify on the Sky.
2. Clarify on the mountains.
3. Decreased highlights on and around the house.
4. Removed small shadow of my self on the forground.
4. Resize and USM.
5. Increased sharpness of the stars and applied noise reductin on the sky.

Top 10 again! Thanks for all the good comment and ofcourse for the good votes. This is really motivating for me to participate in more future challenges.

This is so great. the curves in the road complement the curves in the sky. Pretty good noise control as well, I have no idea how you did it. Since this is advanced editing, maybe you could have brought out some extra detail in the top of the antenna.

i love it. if you had a high powered flashlight with you, you could have light up the tower real nice and made it stand out more.

Absolutely beautiful. I love the colour of the sky, and your DOF/sharpness is brilliant. I also like the way you've processed it to have that patch of colour around the light, yet keeping the rest of the snow monochrome. The whole scene looks really desolate and far away.
