    I was a little concerned that my eyes were deceiving me, so I downloaded your image and imported it into Lightroom, then desaturated all the green, and changed the Hue on the yellow slider to a little more orange (I do this because in Lightroom there is also a band of green which which overlaps into the yellow slider). I can confirm that there is a fair of green in the scene, especially on the rocks. I have emailed you the green desaturated version for reference.... hope it helps.

    Thank You to all that viewed and commented and voted on this photo… Anthony I do not see the Green you mention (note- I have never calibrated this monitor). To those that asked about the lighting and how the Sunset Orange can be present with the dark sky and stars…The rock wall and water where light painted with flash light during the 25s exposure.. was not trying to paint the foreground rocks but could not paint the water without hitting the rocks… ( I may darken them just a bit to make the lighting a bit more natural. The sky and Orange are right out of the camera… LR helped bring out(brighten) the orange color.

    Congrats with your placing, I am also very interested in how you achieved the sunset and the starry sky in 1 image.

    I'm so amazed you are just before me in the ranking. I did wonder how is the sun setting while the starry night is out? did you add the orange in
PP?

    Excellent exposure to be able to capture the deep blue of the sky, the detail in the rocks, and the glow of the sunset through the opening.

    This has all the elements for a spectacular image and yet just misses for me and I am unsure why. The foreground and background rocks are equally spectacular, the water is ethereal, maybe it is I sense the elements all compete and don't work to present a cohesive whole. Or maybe it is just me.

    Really amazing shot, especially how you captured the sun setting through what looks like a magical door. My top pick!

    An intriguing shot, well-executed. Despite the brightness of the sunset through the arch, it seems odd that there's no trace of it in the sky above the rock.

    Very effective shot. There are lots of shots of this place from up top, but you had to be on the beach for this one. And also patient, I think. Nicely done.

    Beautiful place and wonderful photo. It looks like a doorway into a magical fairy-tale land. Top 2.

    Good composition. The lighting is a bit unnatural and surrealistic.

    I'm assuming this was dark and you used some type of lighting to bring out the rocks. Interesting result. I'm trying to imaging the color gradient in the sky behind the rocks from the orange setting sun to the dark blue sky above. Probably the orange light would have not allowed you to capture the stars.

    Love the lighting and composition of this. The bright planet in the sky makes it even more appealing.

    Tremendous shutter speed choice and effect. The detail in the foreground and the orange lighting are superb to draw in the viewer's eye.

    The green on the rocks in the scene is a bit distracting, but overall I like it.
