Corner sharpness is great, but I don't like the starburst and it sucks with night skies. It's like 1-2 stops of light gets lots in the barrel.

What makes this shot so great is the incredible visible distance between Cape Town and the clouds! The Viewer really gets a great feeling of the height and the distance. The full moon illuminates the sky nicely and the incoming mist devouring the city, completes this magnificent shot! Well done Hougaard!
