Retake of this shot but without the trucks as the comment requested.


[Jun. 24th, 2011 02:27:20 AM]

I decided to do a repeat of my star trails based on this image and its comments.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1263/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_910455.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1263/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_910455.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

technically very well done picture. The subject isn't very interesting though. 6

Just to clear up a few opinions by members thinking that my image is a repeat of this image from the Tripod challenge -

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1406/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_957469.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1406/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_957469.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

1 - the two images were taken within minutes of each other and were uploaded together. The Take two image was taken immediately BEFORE the Tripod image.

2 - the first image had not even started voting let alone received any comments for me to use as a base image for this challenge.

3 - I have done many star trails before so I could have based it on any of them.

These two images are not linked in any way except they were taken on the same night at the same location.

Appealing minimalist 'scape. Love it. Only flaw is the unlevel horison rising up to the left but refreshing image and the stand-out in this challenge. 9

Great picture! The contrast between the blur in the sky and the sharpness on the Earth is really cool.

The hint of sunlight in this scene it what makes it really great to me. That contrast in colors is very cool.
