Floundering in the moonlight

Ok my first real go at a looong exposure under only moon light after some tips from Philternz and Bob West. 5 mins and 5 secs at 5.6, zoomed to max wide at 10mm.

This was taken at Raglan estuary a minute or two's walk from our camp site. The light trails on the water is a person with a torch walking in the water toward me trying to catch flounder. Want to do more of these so will try this week with the full moon approaching. Only had time to do one shot but it worked so was suprised it did at all, focus could have been better but work in progress I guess with these. Double meaning to the title :-)

A bit of curves and a touch of saturation and that's it. Got some flare\halo around the moon but left it SOOC as quite like it?

Just got back this avo so will catch up with everyone over next day or so.
