Astro-Landscape of Havasu Falls
Lens: Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Camera: Nikon D5300 

The 24 MP sensor that Sony has been perfecting for a while now is, simply put, incredible... I've tested four or five different versions, including a borrowed K-3 earlier this year. The K-3 stands above the rest with its balance of sheer performance, ruggedness, and value. ...Which is why I'd really love to win the K-3!!

Image is a single ~15 min. exposure, no special post-production other than Lightroom basic editing and light burning / dodging. Hope you like it.

Interesting picture. But I find it kind of confusing that it looks like the middle of the day instead of night!

The moon was 30-45 mins away from rising, so the landscape was indeed very faintly illuminated with relatively daylight-balanced light... ;-)

I nominate this photo. I have seen thousands of night, astronomy photos. But this is different, with a wonderful landscape in the foreground.

Thank you, Jimmy! I've been enjoying taking a new approach to the whole "astro-landscape photography" thing lately. Especially with cameras like we have access to now!!!!
