That's a lot of work to capture these scenes, then process them. These are spectacular shots. Hard work with great results.

Well done.

Number three for me is the best. It looks as though it's the type of photo that cannot be achieved and yet there you are showing me it can. I continue to stare at it starting to think..."no surely this was painted in Illustrator, or maybe some witchcraft of photoshop is behind this." but non the less you have shown your amazing talent in that photo. Great job...just wow

Hey tswen, I had to chuckle just a bit.....no witchcraft or Illustrator here :^) The concept behind photography is "just get the light there"....your camera only picks up light. So if you can master where the light goes, you can create anything.

The reason I like photographing at night is because I like starting with a 'blank canvas'. Like an artist applying his/her vision on an empty canvas so is the photographer starting from nothing.....staring out at blackness and lighting what he/she 'sees'.

Everyone here on this forum live around interesting subjects and can create outstanding shots simply by writing with light.

Stunning technical achievements. Compositions that have too much going on. The moonlit river is beautiful but that big fuzzy ball of cloudy moon competes with it. Either subject as depicted here would dominate if the rest of the image was simple.

In the waterfall picture I'd also replace the star tracks sky with a single exposure of starts as points of light because the image is too busy. It also really bothers me that most of the star tracks are the expected curves with a common center point, but there are also straight line tracks.

Images like these remind me of seeing a 10 year old blues harmonica player who was hailed by B. B. King as one of the best in the country, regardless of age. The kid was technically excellent. Saw him again four years later. He'd taken his music up a giant step because he'd learned that the silences were just as important as the notes.
