06 Mill by starlight

Starry skies are al­ways a pop­u­lar sub­ject, and of­ten what sets an im­age of the night sky apart is what else falls within the frame. What the judges ap­pre­ci­ated about this pho­to­graph was the way the dap­pled stars of the Milky Way are echoed in the pat­tern of the stonework on the wind­mill, and the way the stars seem to lead di­rectly to the build­ing. The lat­ter’s con­verg­ing ver­ti­cals, mean­while, make it look as if it’s lean­ing to reach them. With­out the mill in the frame, the stars would seem to have less pur­pose; with­out the stars, the mill would look lost. To­gether, they make a great im­age.
