Ohmygoodness! Appreciate inDEED! It is breathtaking. What I appreciate the most is how conditions have to be perfect to get good star photos. There needs to be moonlight -- but not too much moonlight. The moon has to be in the right place behind you. There needs to be some but not too much light below. I have tried many times -- but have never pulled off a really good starry night photo. This is perfect!

Oh. BINGO! This is so "perfect" it looks like a construction, not a real scene. If this doesn't take a ribbon something's wrong, IMO. Nah, I guess that's not true, there are a bunch of really sweet shots here, but anyway you done real good :-)

Well, I love Tuscany, so how can I resist? Very nice capture, although I get the feeling more could have been to get a better composition here.

I would improve this shot in a number of ways. If I were half good enough to take in the first place. Great shot 8

It's a startling image. I am trying to work out what the sharpening effects are and if the effect is too strong. Are there any hot pixels in this image?

Love that song!! Neat idea using the night time. Love the vivid cobalt of the sky with the yellow and green of the vineyard. VERY pretty.
