    Fine light and interesting off-centring.
    The opposing colours of yellow and blue, work well here.
    You’ve conveyed a good atmosphere.

  • Cheers Colin, tried hard not to centre the rig – I’m always doing that, but I wanted the sky and sea to be the stars, as the rig and it’s flare created them
