    Thanks very much! It was an exceptionally fortunate confluence of great aurora and perfect viewing conditions. The ice has melted from the lake, and although it is normally quite windy at this spot, on this particular night it was dead calm which made the reflection possible. I normally shoot aurora with my 24 mm prime, but this display was so huge I switched to the 14 mm to take it all in. I'm especially happy because this makes up for the big aurora show that I missed out on last month. It goes to prove that if you find a good spot for a photo, you just need to have the patience and determination to keep going back time and again until everything lines up perfectly.

    Edit: Another image from the same evening. This one with my 24 mm prime:

    Jonathan...just to join the chorus...great shots. I actually prefer the second. Needs to be hanging on a wall someplace.

    I've had these up on flickr, but with a bunch of travel, didn't post them here. A few others I liked of the Eiffel tower:

    24-70 II @ 28 mm, 1/80, f/8, ISO 125

    small-7043 by kayaker72, on Flickr
    Rokinon 14 mm 1/80, ISO 100 (I believe f/8)

    small-7127 by kayaker72, on Flickr
    Rokinon 14 mm 1/60, ISO 100 (I believe f/5.6-8)

    Then...you can always take a little Eiffel tower home with you (I was happy with just the photos)

    24-70 II @ 70 mm, 1/50, f/2.8, ISO 400

    All shot with the 5DIII.

    And this one with the EOS-M, 18-55 @ 18 mm, 1/10, f/4, ISO 400

    If it hasn't happened yet, welcome to the forum Minerve101!!

    Overall, I like the shot. My first advice would be methods of posting larger than a thumbnail. Really, there are two options:

    1. After uploading your thumbnail but before posting, double click on the image. This will give a box where 2 lines down, you can control the size at which the image will be viewed.
    2. Import from elsewhere. Many, including myself, import from flickr. But there are many places you can import from. Simply post the BBC code into the Message box.


    Regarding technical aspects of the photo, as I said, I like the shot. It is sharp, well framed with a good subject. The biggest issue I see is light. It looks to be direct overhead sun. I've read quotes essentially stating that the best thing a photographer can do in the middle of the day is eat lunch. Of course, for those of us that do not have the luxury of time, you take what opportunities you can get. In other words, I would have taken that shot too. But softer light coming in at angles can be had in the morning and evening.
