I looked at this for a while to understand the eerie stillness it captures. As I did so I realised that, with a bit of imagination, the mast apears to be "holding up" the last ligering light areas of it doesn't want the darkness to arrive.
Excellent atmosphere! Kudos.

Wonderful shot. I hovered between 9 and 10 until I realised that I was only comparing it with some of your other photo's which are 11's. This is "only" a perfect 10. :)
