Veibrink vs The Milky Way by torivarn Veibrink vs The Milky Way by torivarn
This is one of my first captures with my new setup (Nikon D800 and Nikons 14-24mm 2.8)
The capture is done at the northern parts of Norway, Nordreisa to be precise.
It's not quite there yet, but it I'm in awe of my new setup!

Edit: Removed some noise.

I find your photographic skills to be superb. The themes are clearly carefully selected with patience, which is a mark of a first-class photographer. The foreground and backgrounds are cleverly contrasted so as to give a subtle but significative contrast between the lowliness of the earth and the unfathomable grandeur of th skies.

I would recommend continuing what you do, because clearly there is no other direction you can go but forward, which is the way of progress.

Given that you live in Norway, a country characterized by its natural beauty, showcasing the natural features of the Scandinavian lands would be most appreciated.
What do you think?

The vibrancy and the clear detail of the sky are outstanding and make it really stand out. The new set up is definitely working! The meteor trails are a nice capture too. The silhouetted landscape nicely contrasts with the colours of the sky.

The only tweak I could suggest is that the photo be less centrally focused - but that's a matter of personal choice and is something I have to work on myself :)

The vision of this piece is clearly shown and illustrated by the skill of the photographer. Who has a definite appreciation of the natural landscape and appreciates the wonder of the night sky :)

It's amazing that you only had the shutter open for 1/25 of a sec (I assume that's what it means over there on the left, where it says "25/1")! I've tried taking shots in a darksky site and had it open for seconds, couldn't get stars that bright at all. The skies must be very dark where you are. 

Gorgeous shot. I see a few meteors shooting by. What a beautiful place Norway must be.

Yes, I found it! I so love the Milky Way! And with your skill and style, it would bring the picture to a whole new level!

I now can't stop thinking of that story, Night on the Milky Way Railroad. >w<
It's like a beautiful river flowing in the sky!

There really aren't any words to describe this captured scene. For someone that does not live where this gorgeous phenomena occurs I can only look in wonder. With your obvious skills you seem to have been put in a perfect place of the world. Even though I can't see it in person I can depend on you to bring it to me. Thanks much for sharing; your gallery is incredible, each photo more beautiful than the next. It was hard to leave.

I'm very flattered by your compliments. Thank you so much :)
Also I strive to become a better and better photographer and editor, so I can to some extent plan a scene both photographically and in post-processing as I see it; imagining how to capture will look as a end-result when I'm at the scene.

this leaves me awestruck. I love how your camera captured some shooting stars as well as blue of the milky way and the orange from the earth.

The milkyway isn't as blue as that, this is oversaturated, but the ambient light is quite orange in the original capture :)
