*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing image that contributes well to the open challenge.

Another stunning capture of this wonderful natural phenomenon that is rarely captured during the long daylight you have there as well as you have here. Given the exposure necessary for this you do have a little overexposure which is unavoidable but may have benefited from some post processing. The landscape and clouds add more interest to the image as a whole but the right of the image feels a little on the weak side..

I think the image as it is would probably benefit from a square crop where the clouds end at the top right but I think there was an opportunity here for a portrait orientation to include a lot more water and the lovely reflections in the foreground.

Thank you for another lovely entry Otto.

I love seeing the green of the grasses and trees in contrast with the green of the aurora...I'm so used to looking at these skies above frozen landscapes...very pretty.

Magical image which embraces both day and night. The sense is that anything can happen. What a beautiful part of the world.
