It's simply amazing. Stunning really, haven't seen anything nearly as amazing as this. The clouds have a really strong effect in there releasing how bright the aurora really was. It is a true masterpiece! The hints of the different shades of aurora like purple, blue, and green, as well as the strong white effect leave this piece jawdropping. The name you chose for the deviation has a strong impact as well. The originality of this is exceeding limits of imagination. It's a great piece! Keep them coming! I guess all of the little things in life that make you happy come in large packages ;)
What do you think?

I'm curious, how did you arrive at the 48 GW figure?

Thank you very much :)

There are scientist measuring the strenght of the aurora all the time, and you can get those numbers through apps, like Aurora Forecast or you can also just go to www.spaceweather.com and find loads of info.
Then all there is to do is mark the time in which you saw the aurora and check that against whats measured at the same time. :)

Where do i start? Amazingly sharp, beautiful, enchanting and one of the most surreal landscape i've ever seen. I can't hardly believe it's real.
You should be proud of this shot and all of your other aurora photos!

Why doesn't stuff like this get Daily Deviations or anything...? =p

Seriously, even though it's just a snap of a picture, twiddling some settings here and there (depending on what you want); the quality, the setting and the overall picture is just mind-blowingly fantastic! Even more so when you seemingly capture the night sky and clouds at the same, as if there's a transition.

How on earth do you always find such prime locations for taking shots of aurorae in the sky? It's truly incredible stuff. =)

Thanks so much. :)

As I understand it you can only get a DD every 6 months, and I got one in november, so even if this was concidered for one I wouldnt get it.

Its not too hard to find good locations here, its quite stunning landscapes in northern norway. :)

My pleasure as always mate.

Oh, I see with the Daily Deviations... So much for the "daily" part, eh? ;p

Certainly deserves the consideration though.

Man, it must be a blessing to be somewhere like Norway for a professional photographer. So much to capture, so little time... =)
Reply
:icontrichardsen:
Trichardsen Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Professional Photographer
Yeah, I think in most cases the Daily deviation systems works to showcase new artists and artworks, they especially give them out to underappreciated works that deserves more recognition, and its a limit of 1 every 6 months.

I wouldnt quite say professional photographer as Ive only been taking pictures for a little over a year. :)

A pretty nice system, in that regard... I wonder when mine will come in... :icondreamplz:

Hey, for a little over a year, you're already doing a fine job. Maybe Norway is the kind of place to consistently provide a wonderful canvas, but it takes someone with that eye for detail, that appreciation for beauty, to truly capture it. You may say you're not quite professional, I say, you're well on your way.

I think of myself more as an artist than a photographer as I have my base artisticly from drawing, thats what I brought with me to the camera, and I use it as much as I can, I do look for shapes a lot when photographing, I use composition rules when they will apply and I constantly break those rules to shoot things how I want them to be. :)

AussieDidge Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well hey, nobody said you had to fit the one mould to be successful as an artist... although judging from your photography that'd be your best bet. =)

Since you were first using pen and pencil (so to speak) instead of a camera, have you ever thought of trying to recreate the works you captured? Or are you going to stick to full-time photography?

Meh, the world is your canvas, and truly, save for rules that transcend legal and moral boundaries, there are no rules to what you can and can't capture. ;)

Well i do still scetch a bit, I have not forgotten how to draw. :D

I do the occational drawing, but as there is not a chance in h.... at least here to earn a living drawing with pencil photography is the way to go for me, and besides I would say I love both drawing and taking pictures equally, so its no problem. :D

I have though about recreating an aurora image Ive taken in pencil, but starting a company and all that jazz takes up all my time nowadays
