An Emperor’s view by JulienFolcher

Went back to Jingshan park yesterday, it offers the best view you can get on the Forbidden City. The sky didn’t have any clouds so I waited after the sunset to be able to get a star trail shot above the palace. There’s not a lot of stars due to light pollution from the city, but it’s still enough to get an interesting sky.
This is a composite of one sunset image, one blue hour image and 130 night pictures for the stars, all blended in photoshop. Hope you like it!

Norah Aurora by jakubsisak

Last night’s aurora borealis as seen from my front yard on Norah St. in Thunder Bay. There are a few things that need to be mentioned here; nearly full moon was up in the sky, this is taken under fairly bright LED street lamps and the KP was hovering around 4.5 – 5 which is only moderate in my books. This was happening around 11-11:30 PM just as I was heading out to the Cascades for a night shoot. Never seen aurora like this in the city under a full moon. By the time I was on location the show was just about over and I only got a green glow in the rest of my shots that night. (My wife is a little alarmed that the house looks like it needs a paint job but it’s actually shadows from the tree illuminated by the street lamp behind it.)
