I'll throw it back today, because it's Thursday, and I feel like I disregarded this image from a few months ago. It was competing against a rare blood moon event, and it was easy to overlook back then.

On second glance, I like it very much. There's a strange balance to all the subjects. The blue tree has a gravity that the green and purple pull from but are rooted towards. The motion of earth, sky, and stars is interesting too - you can see the motion of clouds and stars crisscross.

This was one of the most martian looking landscapes I've seen yet, here's a 270˙ view of the spot at blue hour. That tiny reddish spect on the left is the moon peaking over the horizon:
