Well it's a nice shot.
Perhaps some noise reduction on the water. It looks dusty at the bottom of the image although the texture feel to the water comes off nicely. Is that a 9 minute shutter? It looks like the camera may have moved ever so slightly at the start and end of the exposure but I still like it. I especially like the way the less bright stars blend in with each other and start to form patterns.
I'm not sure if the plane should be removed though. I also like the purple colours on the water.
I will try some noise reduction on the water and repost when I get home today. The shot is I believe 25, 30second exposures so your guess on 9 minutes is very close.

That would be why I'd carry bolt cutters.
But I think you needed a longer exposure for the star trails.
How did the car get damaged?
I agree a longer exposure would have been nice but as I was rushed to make it out before the park closed I had to cut it short in hindsight after being locked in anyway, wish I had of just returned to the water and started again.
The funny thing about the bolt cutters is when I was at home packing they were in the basment sitting right beside my tent and I almost picked them up! but then I figured I was taking the wife’s car so no logging roads etc and I proly wouldn’t need them anyway! Never again! They now live beside my spare tire lol
and well... the car... that was my doing in the pitch black I backed into a rather large pothole and cracked and scratched up the rear bumper not as bad as I was fearing but still! (mad at myself for that one)
