Finally got my PSU back from service and have started the tedious process of going through over 5000 photos, this one was shot on Sørkjosen mountain on the 8. September.
I will post more when I get back from London.

This picture was well timed and captured! It looks amazing, like something you would see in a fairytale or your dreams. The rays of light behind and around it give it some dimension and aura. I also love how the light contrasts around the land and how the land is silhouetted and in the front, yet, not the main focus of the picture. overall I think this is an amazing shot of the stars. It looks like you were able to move the Milky Way into your own desired area. Amazing job! I can't wait to see more of your photography!

What strikes me about this picture first is that beautiful "glittery" sky with a concentration on it's middle part. This gives a shocking view at first, but then the soft gradient of violet mixed with gray on the water makes it cleaner. The black parts ads to the photo stronger accent, but it still have a good connection with upper sky with it's dark blue.
The photo is not static thanks to effect of motion in the reflect of stars in the water. I like the tree that gives something different to the photo, howether it is not intrusive, just adds that bit of interesting detail.
The only thing I would say I don't like is that brown area with rocks (?) on the left corner. It is a little bit distracting, because lighter spots make appearance of something like stars too, but it's more apparent after a longer viewing a photo.
After all, for me this is one of the better photos I've ever seen. It is breathtaking. I love the motion and little details. Big congratulations to a very talented photographer!

Is it really possible to see so many stars?

I'm missing out. I hate the city.

I love the greens, blues and violets of the sky with the kiss of peach in the centre...  the stars and reflections are awesome! The tree to the right is a bit of a distraction to me, but better natural than modified. :-)

Thank you very much. :)

Yeah I was thinking about that tree when standing there, but the composition was way better than many of the alternatives so I elected to have it in, though in hindsight I think the camera lowered and a more upward angle would be better. :)

Great milky way capture - although I would have preferred the main subject to not be so in the centre of the photo.

Well that is the thing with long exposures, wide angle lens and stars, placing closer to edges will show more star trailing and the milky way will look weird.

Lovely focus on the sky and galaxy, I like how the landscape is also a prominent part of the photo and is beautiful in its own right :).

Is there ANY CHANCE at all that you could release a 1080p wallpaper version of this? Perhaps with a watermark? I just want this as my lock screen on Windows 8.1 :aww: It's freaking beautiful.
