hmmm I'm confused - there is already another one very similar

Two people spotted the same scene! I love the glowing bush. The only personal niggle are the green and yellow lights on the left. I think I would have either cropped them out a bit and burned them in or just burned them in. They are the brightest items in the image and I keep getting distracted by them. Super building and I love the eerie green and yellow tones

Damn that plane flying through your image. I wonder if cloning that out would have helped a bit on the end result (still very nice).

Wow, I think I just saw this exact building in voting. Good shot though!

Clearly two of you went shooting together - which is perfectly fine. I prefer this one even though your building looks a bit wonky. Your technique is good and has resulted in a pretty noise free shot. I also love the way the clouds movement is perendicular to the movement of the stars. Woul dhave been nice to see perhaps just a bit more light inside the house / windows though. Overall good job!

This is the same building as another shot, weird.
