Trying to compete with the icelanders is tough to do, your northern lights are excellent, your trees are well not as good... Fun image good job.

I am in love with the sky in this shot. Wish there wasn't so much white at the top ... it is a bit distracting.

Looks like you did some painting with light. The foreground is a little overexposed. Very creative though.

When I was a kid I always assumed there was a "pole" at the north pole :-) You captured an amazing aurora borealis there, kudos!

A great use for "paitning with light." Fantastic setup.

Good work on the sky effect... but not really enough LANDscape...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hehehe, too cute. A little overboard on the light play in the sky, but awesome effort all the same :)

Nice idea to create the Northern Lights...that part of the image is very well executed. The bottom half seems a bit flat and less exciting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice Aurora,... are there trees at the North Pole?

The "northern lights" are a little too much, but you did a very good job.

I like how you did the lighting and the simplicity of your foreground. Too bad you didn't have a little person with tripod and camera shooting up at the sky - lol

very good attempt but the snow has too much glare and the sky too busy, comp too centred.

excellent effort !! 6

Amazing idea. The Aurora B. - I wish I thought of that!!!!! It would be safe to add a bit of sharpness and contrast to the foreground but the background is sucha agood idea it's still worth an 8.

I like how you used painting with light at teh background to create an aurora feel... its a good take on teh challenge but perhaps following the rule of thirds 4 composition would have improved it =]

Great idea and ingenuity - love the "sky" effect you've got.

slightly boring and wouldn't a green sky given the snow and rock some colour. 6
