Nice one! I like the colors, and the composition with the lighthouse works well - showing a bit more of the place.

I love how the curve of the coast complements the curve of the aurora borealis... Since that is the center of my attention, I wish there was even more symmetry to that. i.e. have the picture a bit to the left, so that the space is similar. The composition with the lighthouse is beautiful and works, just... the first thing I noticed was the curves.

I guess that comes across a bit harsh. The composition, as is, is gorgeous. However, I believe if you add just a bit to the left, there'd be two ways the photo could work. It would look great just looking at the curves, and it would look great looking at the lighthouse.

Needless to say I love the motive, colors, and everything else about the photo. I can totally see IKEA (or any other company) sell it as artwork.

Add me to the list of people loving this photo.

My personal favorite part of this is the colors of the aurora and the transition into the starry sky.

Beautiful capture all around! The foreground complements the aurora nicely, and the stars in the sky along with the lighthouse make for a very interesting photo overall.

Very good effect overall. The pano manages to encapsulate the northern lights well.
