Stunning image.
One of the best auroras I've ever seen.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Another gorgeous shot of the Aurora Borealis, taken in Iceland...and it isn't even winter there yet! :-)

Love the mirror-calm reflection and as a few others have already noticed, a glowing angel, clearly seen once rotated 90 degrees clockwise. As is common with long exposures and high ISOs, there is some noise (and possibly chromatic aberration, where there is pink/purple fringeing on the lower edge of the borealis), and omg you even *broke* the cardinal rule of not having a horizon at the halfway mark...but all is forgiven when it results in such a spectacular shot. And a FS ribbon with a front page dominated by landscapes. The long silky ribbons of the borealis and the way they play off the lay of the land is beautiful.

Overall a fantastic shot, well seen and captured. Oh and congratulations on the yellow, too!

Congratulations on your ribbon. This was another one of my 10s. This my friend is on my bucket list. How awesome it must be to experience such beauty!

Somehow this Aurora shot was less captivating than the other Aurora image in this FS, but still very interesting to see. I hope I can get this kind of shots myself one day. Congrats on the Yellow!

Congrats my friend, great capture :)

I have never had the chance to photograph the lights, but this seems a little muddy in spots and maybe a little over saturated. But for all I know, since I haven't witnessed these events, the saturation might be right on the nose.

Great symmetry. How can you go wrong with a borealis!

Wow, déjà vu. Very nice.

If you'd turn it 90 degrees to the right there would be a glowing angel...
Outstanding nature show, perfectly captured! Will be back to vote

turn it 90 degrees clockwise and you have an angel
