Been hoping to get the right conditions to take this photo, managed to get it right after midnight tonight ( 09.10.13 ) during the CME that hit.
Hope you like this. :)

Captured in Sørkjosen, Northern Norway.

The Aurora Borealis is stunning, you've captured the night sky so well! the stars look crisp and clear and the colours are fantastic! (I love that deep purple)

My eye is drawn fairly quickly to the light bar in the bottom left, which is very distracting. From what you have said in the comments, it is a piece of light artwork, unfortunately you can't tell that from the image itself, as it has no discernible form. It also seems to be producing a shadow(?) of some kind to the top right of it, which I think detracts from the aurora.

I like how you have included the trees, and the rock shelf which are both crisp and clear. They stop it from being just an image of the northern lights and make it a wonderful night scene.
What do you think?

I can hear alien 'gregorian' chants of twelve-seventytwo,
fading every one of them individually in and out, composed to the last bit, sequence, pitch and sound,
duration, attack, sustain, decay, just listen, there's nothing to say.

Epic!!! 0_0

The timing was just right... :nod:

The CME shots attract the eye more because of variant colours, but all are just as impressive... thanks for the continued documentation... have you thought of a youtube channel of your work, many people online follow space weather and would love vids about the effects witnessed on the poles :D

Well done as usual :clap: Don't you live in Iceland? how come this shot is in Norway...?

Thank you very much. :)

I do have a youtube channel, but there is only 1 video there, SOJ the one you can find in my gallery.

I work in Level 4, a photo/video company and we have a youtube and a vimeo channel with all our videos, you can check it out here: vimeo.com/user18134250

And I live in Northern Norway, not Iceland. :D

Cool, how much does it cost to copyright your media? I want a copyright number too!

The actual copyright is always in the hands of the photographer, but it is possible to sell anything from limited to exclusive licencing, for full usage that would be quite expensive.
