Northern Triangle

By torivarn
I'm currently in a process of cleaning up my harddrive and I found this beauty.
I chose to call it Northern Triangle for some obscure reason :)

It's been a while since I've published anything, but I'll get back stronger once I've sorted some photographybusiness I have going.

I hope you guys are well into 2013.

Also be sure to check out my northern light timelapse [link]

:star::star::star::star::star-half: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Impact

The first thing that my eye is drawn to is the upper third of the frame, where it is pulled in by many vast colors complimenting each other. I have seen many shots like this before but yours has some highly unique color combinations I have never seen in a aurora. The form of the lines in the sky is quite nice in that it seems to move my eye in a diagonal pattern up to the top and then down to the bottom of the frame.

Now, the bottom of the frame is where I feel the image starts to fall apart. The cloud for instance in the bottom left has no real purpose for being there, it just distracts from the great yellows and greens of the aurora near it.

Next, I would say is the trees near the bottom left (I understand that they probably had to be there when you composed this) they don't really go with the brush on the bottom right which is what I find more appealing out of the two.

Overall, the bottom right brushes are placed perfectly in the frame and I kind of just want them to be the only element in the foreground minus the other brush and clouds on the left.

I hope that helps,
Cheers!

Thanks alot for the critique.

Foreground is something I do try to work alot on when capturing auroras these days. That being said it's hard to predict where I'll be when the aurora bursts.
Scenery shots of the aurora are easier to compose, but lining up for a into-the-lights shot like this is more challenging.

However I've got some very good captures on my harddrive now, but I won't upload them as I'm in a progress establishing a commercialsite :)
