I don't know what the stars have in them that makes people unable to stop looking towards them. Despite the fact that we see them ever night ( except when it's cloudy), everytime they seem to inspire us and we often go on walks in the night just to see them. They are also posses a very romantic element.

It's good that the photo is horizontal, that breaks a certain stereotype of sky photos. The slightly bent to the right line of trees and the fence adds a bit of dynamism to the shot.

I just wish that the plants were lit up some more, it could just be a small light of a flashlight or a car (I've seen such things), it would expand the whole scene slightly.

...This is so gorgeous. Just the lighting is breathe-taking. You did a very amazing job, I have a question though, what kind of Camera do you use? I've gotten into taking pictures, just, still amateur-ish. But, it's super amazing, I just put this as my Background on my computer, if that's alright with you. c:

Thank you! I used the canon 5dmarkIII with the sigma 20mm. Wide but still gets enough light. It was so dark I couldn't see properly but luckily the camera got something!

That's good, it's still really amazing! And I'm looking into that camera right now, I think I might get it. Thank you for telling me the Type/brand of Camera to use! If that makes any sense. xD
