a very interesting shot; the sky reinforced by action on the ground.

A lot of power in this well-done image. Wow! Not subtle. I'm sure that it has significant personal meaning for them. Well set up and captured. Not often that I see an image with this much oomph. Thanks.

Nice use of astro-tracer.

I'm trying to figure out why the rusty statue is so well defined. It seems that it would be blurred a lot more considering the length of the exposure and the astro-tracer motion.
The flash worked fine for the couple, but the dark image of the statue seems well-defined, and is not well illuminated. Am curious how many tries it took for you to do this?

What inspired you to do this?

The dark image of the statue seems well defined because of the poor resolution of this posted picture. When we look on the full resolution, we can see the movement of stars (by the astrotracer) on the left of the dark part of the statue :-), and the statue is a little bit blurred.

We made few tries to do this image (3-4, no more), because of very low temperature (we were at around 2200m altitude) and hard wind.

The inspiration was to show the "cosmic perspective" (# Carl Sagan), between the couple on Earth and our galaxy. Like a bridge between our finiteness Life and the inifinity of universe :-) .
