Nice one James!

I really enjoy the different nightscapes people put up. Keep them coming.
Recently watched a YouTube clip showing how to highlight the foreground (like the stockyard shed and fence) using a flashlight, very interesting.

Oh by the way welcome to Ice in space

Thanks Darren. Another possibility is to use more exposure on the images that make up the land (i.e. more time or wider aperture).

Great shot. I imagine it looks even better in full resolution.
