I like #1 best. The sky and trees almost look like a dome.

Excelent work Spy. I agree with VV in that No. 1 captures the mood of the camping experience. Around the evening campfire rehashing the days events and the prospects of tomorrows.

Could you please explain #1. Its more than just a single long exposure. Ive seen a million campfire shots, and this is the first I was really impressed with.

Glad you liked it Bynx! The campfire image is a composite of 4 landscape shots starting at the bottom and finishing looking straight up at the stars then stitched using cs5 photomerge tool. All shots are taken at f2.8 but the ISO's for the first bottom 3 shots are set at 1000 and the last image of the stars was set to 4000 to make those stars pop.

The light in the background was from the campfire next door to us.

Going for another road trip this weekend and hope to try another similar shot like it.
