    One of my favorites ... so many interesting elements here, the star trails, the train tracks and bridges, the tress, and looks like water as well. If anything, the lower half of a pic looks a bit too processed for my personal taste but this image works really well on many levels.

    I love the perspective of this picture and the surreal quality it has to it. What is that in the sky, and how did you get the picture to look almost like an alternate world?

    Super stunning, has to be the winner!

    Very nicely executed - great color and exposure. Though I find the star trails interesting, I might actually like the scene better without them.

    I'm a sucker for well done celestial photography - and this qualifies in spades! My top pick!

    Amazing shot! This inspires me to try astro photography. One of my top picks.

    Love the rich color tone and perspective, even without the stars.

    Anthony: Fast-moving, scattered clouds moved across the sky during the time I was shooting causing breaks in the trails.

    This is almost other worldly, and I think the effect is terrific. Beautiful composition and detail.

    A very SteveBee-like image, which is a good thing. Well done and in my TTs.

    Nicely done... The sky looks pretty much overcast in this exposure, which creates a separation between the star trails and the overcast sky. Now it is possible that the stars could have been peering through some scattered clouds, but in this exposure the clouds look a little heavy for that. All this said I still like the detail, and colors picked up here. In my favorites.

    great shot. I think I recognize this trestle. too hazy and too much light pollution lately to pull that off around here. need a cool dry high pressure system to drop in over my state to capture the stars like this.
well done.

    Very striking picture.
I've tried the same kind of thing myself - without success.
You've motivated me to try again.

    The layered photographs give an impression of glowing foliage and of course the wonderful pattern of the stars. Beautiful composite

    I like this image... the offset center of star racks over the bridgeworks nicely.. quite a bit of noise in the RR ties.. in my TT

    Beautiful shot. I normally don't like the HDR look but this works. High in my TT.
