The winner in the category "Against the Lights" was Ulrich Beinert (Germany), who is an airline pilot who's provided a blinding view of Brussels. The Belgians don't come off very well in his estimation.

Beinert says
Brussels, capital of Belgium, the European country that to this day completely illuminates many of its highways and main roads. From space and from the air, the vast network of roadways stands out from the surrounding countries. Here, Brussels is seen in the foreground from the cockpit of an airliner, the soft evening twilight colors with the crescent Moon in the background. Belgium has almost no refuges for those wanting to see the night sky in its original beauty, human heritage of hundreds of generations and inspiration to millions. Without our view of the night sky, where would our literature, our science be today? We are the first generations to live in a permanent twilight and I wonder what consequences this will have in the arts and sciences!

The winner in "Beauty Of The Night Sky - Composite Category" is "Raining Stars Shooting Down" by Haitong Yu (China).
He says
Quote:
I captured this composite of falling stars during peak hours of Perseid Meteor Shower 2016. Around 90 meteoroids and even the reflections of the brighter ones were recorded during the 3-hour period.

The winner in "Against the Lights - Composite Category" is "The Climb" by Nicholas Römmelt (Austria).
Quote:
It was photographed from Lehner Wasserfall Kletterteig, Ötztal, Austria. "Climbing in the night above the valley of Ötztal in Austria.You can only view the core of our galaxy for several days in a year from that point." says Dr. Römmelt. This panorama of 2x5 panels had to be photographed as exposure series due to the lights of the village and the light of the climber, making it eligible for composite category.

It's a splendid picture - to me, it looks almost like a painting.

The "Beauty Of The Night Sky - Time Lapse & Sequence Category" was won by Dario Giannobile (Sicily, Italy) for "The Missing Observer".

Giannobile writes
Quote:
Once the courtyards of our farmhouses were places where people met and talked about the strenuous day of work in the fields. Maybe they stayed sitting, looking at the clear and dark sky. Nowadays these places are abandoned and no one is looking at the sky any more. That's the reason why the chairs are empty and the mirror reflects the sky that the missing observers would have looked at. A hoe remembers the farming vocation of such places while the prickly pears on the chair represent the island where I live and the period (summer) when this sky has been captured. Light painting creates a surreal mood for a sky that can be seen but is not observed at the same time.

In the category "Against The Lights - Time Lapse & Sequence", the winning image was "Festival Of Lights" by Amirreza Kamkar (Iran).

The picture was taken on a trip to Nepal.
Quote:
There was a festival of lights in this place at Chitwan National Park. In the foreground fireflies were flying near the tree with their beautiful green light. Also lights of the nearby villages were illuminating the scene. But not only in the ground, the villages’ lights spread out to the sky as light pollution. And finally the last light source belongs to stars and two planets: Venus and Mars.

Some of Nicholas Römmelt's prize winners have already shown up in this thread. Here is his "Out Of This World", winner in the Beauty of the Night Sky - Aurora category. He captured this beautiful aurora over Senja Island in Norway.

Sigurdur William Brynjarsson from Iceland won in the new category, Against the Lights - Aurora. He photographed "When Lights Collide" in Vatnsleysustrond, Iceland. It's a dramatic and beautiful picture.

Brynjarsson says
Quote:
Incredible weather conditions resulted in magical moments during that night... Heavy rain clouds along with almost a full moon and good gaps between the clouds resulted in lunar rainbows and lady Aurora dancing hand in hand before us... On top of that you have the light pollution from the town of Keflavik fighting to break through the rain clouds but to no prevail.
