This is an awesome Northern Lights photo - the church and cross in the foreground are the perfect accompaniement. Excellent work.

Oh no, are the northern lights already starting up again? I thought it was a winter thing? Or maybe this is from the southern hemisphere. Hmmmmm. Anyway, nicely done. I think cloning out that hoop-looking object on the left-hand side would add a lot, though.

Great northern lights shot. My eyes keep diverting to the silhouetted arch on the left, when I actually prefer the right hand side of your image.

WOW! Amazing. Geez, I really started to hate northern light shots, because they were so overdone. THIS, however, is different. It's not just the lights and some landscape. It is the lights, and something humble we can identify with. The contrast between small churchhouse and large magestic sky is AMAZING and really makes this stand out from all the other northern light shots. I also love how there is not only green color, as many shots have, but there is blue and orange as well. The way the sky peeks through the clouds is just fantastic, as well as the perspective... And of course I can't help noticing the symbolism with the crosses... I don't know if this is the meaning you intended, but what I get out of it is that God creates really beautiful things.

Iceland? What would you guys do without your green skies?? LOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2007 09:49:17 AM
Wow, fantastic display. My only suggestion is to crop or remove out the Loop thing to the left of the church. Because its right over the brightest part of the photo it is VERY distracting. Good Job!

Man, you Icelanders have it over any of the rest of us when it comes to landscapes and skies. I recognize the locale from previous entries. Man, that aurora borealis is something isn't it?

You cant go wrong with the Northern Lights. Excellent job as you have still managed to create a wow image when some shots of the Northern Lights are almost getting passed over simply because of the magnificence of earlier images that have been seen. Love the composition with the chrchyard. 9

Larus? Some Icelander, for sure. Nice exposure.
