    yes it did come out great!
    Really awesome pic, love the colors and comp!
    (except that yello/orange thing about the middle... a bit distracting)
    And I know stars can be awfully hard to capture, so really nice job, here.
    Once again, awesome shot! :thumbup:

    Do you know your stars? I only ask because you've got all of Orion in your shot!:thumbup:

    Nice shot. Would you mind to tell us the cam-settings used to shoot this?

    You are right! It did come out pretty cool! I cannot but agree.

    But I also agree with Alexandra about the orange bucket...
    But nice to see all of Orion in one photo... (my knowledge about the fact that you captured all of Orion in this photo stems directly - and only :oops: - from Chris's post here :greenpbl: )

    Skiboarder, would you mind if I re-posted your shot with Orion marked on?

    First thing I noticed! :D Looks great. You could crop along the bottom to remove the foreground distractions, might make the shot a little stronger. Nicely done!
