I really like this shot. Is it a double exposure? How did you get the lights in the sky? Nice.

Great Image! I've seen a similar photo taken with 300D (Canon) but it wasn't this good!

Another where's the polaris shot - this one much better. Could have shed some light on the trees for increased effect (a low-power flash or a stronger flashlight or reflector). But it is nice photo as is.
