After several weeks of quiet aurora-activity combined with cloudyweather, I finally found a place so clear that I couldn't remember the last time I saw the stars that brightly shining. I hope you guys enjoy the view as much as I did
I really like how you've laid out this photo. On a first glance, it looked as if he was actually spray painting the aurora across the sky. This set up made for an intriguing way of viewing the image.
My eyes sort of struggle to find a focal point in this image. While the person makes the image interesting, he also has the potential to make it distracting. The highlights around the edges of his body, coupled with the lack of lighting on his back, draw my attention away from the sky. This would be fine if I had a solid point to look at on his body, but the lack of a focal point makes that challenging and keeps my eyes wandering.
The sky at the top might benefit from a little extra contrast. The problem with night photography is that dimmer stars can end up looking like dust or dents in the lens. You might try overlaying a digital filter and reducing its opacity to see if it enriches this section of the photograph. This may just be my personal preference, however.
These are just some minor things I noticed, overall it's an outstanding photo.
Awesomeness! Did the person (you?) have to stand completely still for 5 seconds or is there a trick to it? There was great aurora activity visible the day before this here in Iceland but then it got cloudy again, it was so so lovely
Thanks alot I guess it look kinda digital, it's due to the exposuretime, so it looks kinda dragged out in a way, but glad you like it I decided I wanted one of these reach-towards-the-sky profilpictures, so yesterday was a good evening for that
This is so beautiful! As your other pictures too, but I like northern light pictures most, 'cause they are clost to my heart... Whenever we have northern lights here, I could stay out whole night even if I'm tired and cold and I have to go to school next day. I just love them, maybe too much.
That's wonderful I have visited in Norway few times and I love the landscapes. They are so different than in Finland (where I live), even if Norway is so close to us. Landscapes change instantly when you cross the borderline. We don't have mountains or fjords, so it could be the reason...
And sorry about my English if my text is unclear or something.
You've got some really nice nature in Finland as well. Personally I'm glad I travel quite often, because then I don't get bored with the nature I've got in my own backyard And your english is just fine, don't worry about it
Yes, I like our nature, it's just different than Norway (at least Northern Norway where I've visited), we have lot of forests and fields and lakes. Especially forests. And you are lucky, I don't have change to travel very often in other countries, so when we come to Norway, I'm always amazed And that's good to hear
