Nicely done, well balanced lighting. I have not used my astrotracker yet.

Love the simplicity of this shot. There's just enough foreground to make it interesting, but it's not distracting either, so you can focus on and enjoy the stars. And the colors in the horizon bridge the two areas perfectly. Very well done!

Wow, that's a great night show, but I think it's the foreground that makes this one pop. Well done!
