Thank you very much everyone! All of your feedback through ratings and comments are much appreciated (:
It couldn't have worked out much better. Picked the right location, and got much more than I anticipated and planned on initially. I'm glad you are all enjoying it!

...Now, crossing fingers and hoping everything goes as well as it can, the countdown to Comet ISON begins! (:

What a spectacular photograph. You had it all with this one. The incredible sunset, the city, the moon and finally the creme de la creme the comet. Incredible job and super congratulations on this AC. It's one of the best shots I've seen of the comet yet.
