Very nice. Maybe a little more contrast in the sky?

I like the sparkle from the headlights from the car. It gives it that little twinkle where otherwise it may seem less exciting. I'm assuming it was intentional.

Thanks Qbx. I played around with higher levels of contrast in the clouds, but IMO it takes the focus away from the intended subject. If the sky was more fully cloudy, I think it would be a different outcome.

Thanks for commenting. Actually I was a bit surprised to get the star effect from f/5.6. I would have expected it at f/11 and higher. So, while it was a welcome addition, I can't say I planned it that way;)

In post processing. I would darken the sky and open up some of the the shadow detail in the foreground.

^This. Maybe you can pull up the shadows in the FG and then use a ND filter to darken the sky?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
