Another angle on the slipway. By going for a narrow aperture, the light coming from a lamp-post provided me with a nice starburst effect. Composed the image to place the starburst on a third, close to the name of the kiosk (?), hence the name of the image!

Hope you like!

Love the star effect and nice light in the shadows.

V1 wins hands down. It's a tight, tidy composition, with those steps leading us a leisurely route up to the boats. And b&w creates a private feel. Boats tucked up in their beds for the night...
The star burst is a bonus - low pov has placed it high in the composition, I'd actually like to see it a wee bit further left in the frame.
