Judge: Jonathan Goell Total Score: 30
This image is gorgeous! Nearly everything works: the composition, the extended exposure, the mysterious composition, the way you used the dark shapes as a framing device, and the way your exposure also bought out the sky details.
It looks like multiple exposures were used to get more stars into the frame.
Astronomers might kick.....
My only techy note is that judging by the slight white edge lines on some of the dark shapes, you may have over-sharpened or set too much Clarity, which added to the contrast. But again, I really like this powerful image.
