Gorgeous! Are these Alaskan northern lights? It somehow doesn't have that Icelandic look.

It's probably going to rate high but I think it would do even better without the 'seat'. 8

Beautiful capture. So far it's been cloudy each of the nights the aurora was fore-casted to be seen here.

"Darrell. Darrell. Where are you Darrell?" The disembodied and ghostly alien face glared down at the bench where Darrell was supposed to be, and frowned. This was the 3rd time this week. How could they take over the earth if their main source of intelligence kept missing his rendevous? Where was he? If he was playing hockey again...

He waited fifteen minutes, and then, with a scowl, he dispersed back into the ether, knowing that when he finally got a hold of Darrell, there would be hell to pay.

the bench seems to be out of place. the light on the bench is too harsh

Fantastic! I believe it would be even better with a dark foreground and without the bench

I think I would prefer this shot without the bench.

The bench really hurts this photo, but the lights are incredible. So I'm still giving a 7.

A very well captured sky. Just to be picky I'd say that the seat is facing the wrong way :P
