Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours." - John Galt

    Excellent shot. Much prefer silhouettes like this to some of the light painted shots in your other thread. I need to get off the east coast of the US so I can see some stars again.

    I am really digging this picture a lot. I, too, really like the silhouettes in this shot.

    GREAT Milky Way shot!! LOVE the night shots where the scenery is simply "suggested" by the silhouettes. Feels more natural.

    Yes, there are light paintings that I marvel over, too, but this just feels right.

    I was trialling the light painting that night and must say that I was not too happy with them, I am hoping for alittle bit of moonlight this weekend (35% full moon) as this will add some light on the formations. I too prefer the silhouette shots but would like to do more with light painting. Think I need to experiment.

    For this one I used my manual focus 14mm f/2.8 Rokinon. I find it a great lens to use.
