      Thanks Lo, and thanks to all the others that commented and/or voter for the pic. We've been going to the Badlands for many years now, this is the first time I got a backlit shot like this.

I have to say I was a little surprised by the suggestions to crop the image.
I really like the different levels in background, and feel that the shot would lose a lot of it's impact with a tighter crop.

Anyway, Thanks again and congrats to everyone else that entered.

      Elliott, I forgot that I entered a similar shot in that challenge.
I must be getting old. :D

      Thanks to those of you that commented or voted for my shot.
The exif is from the second shot, the first shot was about 536 seconds long.
I'll try to answer your questions.
Neat - I think the noise is just the sensor, for lack of a better word, overheating. It shouldn't be this noisy. I've done shots like this before with different cameras, little to no noise.
ysal - Yes I was, but the car turning made me shut it down, and then the woman wanted to talk to me for a few minutes about what I was doing, so that's why there's a large gap in the stacked image. I've also used the multiple stacked way of doing it, to many little gaps.
Qixil - same as above.
Jade O. - I've made better star trails than this, but this was the only night I was away from the city to give this a go. The biggest problem was the moon. It was very bright which made the more faint stars more or less disappear.
mrsawyer - As soon as the car turned the corner, I shut it down. The other shot (that I shut down) has a truck coming up from behind me. The entire foreground looked like it was daylight. At that point, I had 25 minutes of exposure, and figured that was enough.

I was going to try the Milky Way that night, but again, the moon was way to bright, I had a hard time even making it out.

That's all I got. Thanks again.

      Thanks for the comments and votes, but I have to say I find it fascinating that a bug on a flower isn't simple to some people.

I guess I looked at it as a whole, two subjects, a bug and a flower, while others wanted to dissect the subjects detail.

Which subject should have been left out, the dragonfly or the flower to fit this challenge better?
I guess my way of thinking doesn't fit well in these challenges.

      Honestly, this shot did better than I thought it would in the voting. Thanks to everyone that voted and commented on it.

      Hey, thanks to you folks that allowed me to step outside the box a bit for this.
Just a note, that's a baby big horn sheep. (lamb)

      Hey everyone thanks for the votes and the comments.
I apologize for the fact that I made no comments.
I'm not good at them, so for the most part, I avoid doing them.
Anyway, thanks again.

      Thank you all for the votes and comments.
I know some you didn't like the subject matter, but it still brought out an emotion.
I entered this challenge knowing that it I tried to fit an emotion to a photo, it'd be tough.
So I picked an emotion that I thought I could create a meaningful image.

I understand if you don't like the image if it strikes to close to home.
I know seven people that ended their lives early. Two hanging, four by gunshot, one jumping
off a bridge.

I've been lucky, I've never known this kind of despair.

This was for them.

      This may be an example where less could have been more. The story told about the age of the tree and the rings works, but then the rings are almost completely covered my the weapons that took it down. In my TT, but I think it could have been stronger.

      Great looking fruit basket. I think there could have been maybe some other items added that could have made the image a little stronger for the challenge. In my TT

      As I'm viewing this on Mother's day, I'll guess that a mother/child love is being shown. In my TT

      I like the lighting and the sense that someone is getting ready to settle in with a favorite book. In my TT

      I like the look of the image, and the sense of loss that is tells. TT

      This owl family (two adults, two owlets) are the most photographed owls in Minnesota.
They live in a tree near one of Minneapolis's city lakes.
The police have set up a perimeter to keep people about 50 feet from the nest.
As for processing, not much going on.
The shot was taken in the afternoon with the sun behind me.
I lightened the shadows a small amount, darkened the highlights some, some crop, added a bit of a vignette.
Nothing to exotic with this one.

      Well this is unexpected. Thanks to all the folks that looked at, commented on, or voted for the baby owl. A little background of the shot. We found out about an owl nest behind a local business, but no one had seen any young ones. Our first night there we found the 3 young ones in a tree near the nest. For the next 2 months we would go there about every other day to see them. On one and only one day we saw a owl in this tree. The sun was going down just over my shoulder when I took this shot. Thanks again folks.
