You've captured a beautiful site here. The lone cloud behind the tree adds a semblance to this already perfect picture. Being able to get such an amazingly untouched piece of earth isn't something you come by everyday and being able to have an eye for it is an art in it's own.
You've done a very wonderful job here, catching such a serene time of day.
I hope you continue to get pictures such as this, that have shown we have beautiful places left in this world. Perfect in every sense of the word.
A 4.5 star average. Great job, honestly, you deserve it.

That picture is absolutely breath taking. This has to be one of my favorite pictures I've ever seen with photography.

Now for my critiquing:

Vision: The night sky is stunning, and you've captured it perfectly! It was the very first thing I noticed in your photo, and I've been staring at that perfect sky this entire time while writing this critique. The entire scenery looks still, calm and very peaceful; something I wish I could see on a daily basis here at home.

Originality: No one can capture this picture exactly like this! The stars are never the same, but I love how you showed the brightness in the stars.

Technique: I can't describe with enough words to say how beautiful your shot of this is. You've just captured it so amazingly!

Impact: I love staring at the stars, especially if the moon is full. I love the snow when it's untouched, like it's been freshly laid down. And having them both in the same picture is like heaven to me- if you can understand what I mean.

I think you deserve 5 stars on the rating and critiquing. I hope to see more of your beautiful photos soon!

Mal etwas Techtalk: für Iso 1600 echt wenig Rauschen und eine überragende Bildqualität.

Vielen Dank. Ich musste auch bei der Rauschreduzierung aufpassen, dass die Qualität nicht flöten geht.

Nee, ich benutze die Rauschreduzierung von Capture One. Damit habe ich bisher die besten Ergebnisse erzielt. Die Kamera-Rauschreduzierung von der 60D ist nicht besonders gut. Generell find ich, hat die ein relativ starkes Rauschen... leider.

Wirklich genial. Ist schön wenn man noch Gegenden ohne Lichtverschmutzung finden kann. Leider ist das nicht selbstverständlich. Freue mich auf den Winter und die sternklaren Nächte.

If not, I would say to withdraw the one I commented on and enter this one instead.

Da soll mal einer sagen, es gäbe keine Sterne mehr. Sehr schöne Aufnahme unter Einbeziehung der Landschaft.
Zur Info: Canon bringt demnächst die 60d als Astro Camera heraus. Die Bezeichnung lautet dann Canon 60Da.

Ich weiß. Bei Canon.de kann man die schon vorbestellen. Sie soll ein Besseres Verhalten vor allem im Rot-Bereich haben. Lohnt sich aber glaube ich ehr für die Deep-Sky-Photographie. Ach, und danke! :)

Sure. The camera is not really necessary. But you have to use a very wide angle. You need a good lens. ;)
