Hospitable fires give a traveler a hope on a heat and comfort! Beautiful and impressive, Snemann. Best wishes. Eva

Nicolas beat me to the question about Orion, so I hope to learn something new from this.

What appears to be almost a bright line reveal themselves to be a string of individual fires in "Original Size." It conveys a whole different feeling which might make a tighter crop a worthwhile thing to try.

As usual, it's a great shot no matter what you choose to do.



Snemann on January 23, 2008

Thanks Hank & Nicolas! The three stars are indeed the Belt of Orion. And the fires, i have to admit, are street lights. I tried cropping but the composition suffered so I went for the panorama version.

Once again Snemann you've come out with a fantastic shot. Parts of it almost look like day but the stars make you realise it can't be! Brilliant! Yellow star.

Leila :)

lovely addition to your fabulous album snemann

Snemann on January 23, 2008

Thanks, Rosina. I am a little unsure if I should crop to remove the foreground, though. What do you think?

rosina lamberti on January 23, 2008

l like the foreground it lets u know that there is snow about, maybe a little bit of a tilt on horizen. l love the lights on the foreshore gives a little romantic feel. do a crop version as well it will bring mountain peaks as feature no reason why you cant make another version of same photo to enhance it, look forward to seeing it, cheers rosina

Hilsen Bjørn.
