I don't think i have post up too much of my shots. Now here is one. CC please. Please give suggestion to what i could do to make it better. I think it is a little over exposed for the person's body, i'll watch out for that next time...=(

A bigger problem is that there are several stars on the back of his head.

I think the semi-tranparency is odd. Punctuated by the weird part in the hair and the bright spot on the right side of the person's waist line.

Just not sure what the person is doing there ... it's distracting. I wonder if he/she is pointing to a spaceship or maybe E.T.? Takes my attention away from the sky, which I like. Wish I could capture that!

It's a pretty good effort, but the skyline at the upper-right is a touch disturbing. :D

Rear curtain flash would have been better here.
That way you get no transparency like that.
Exposure for the background, and at the very end you have the person stand there and then "POP" the flash fire and the exposure is saved.

Why even include the person in the shot?? Its the sky we should be looking at?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Your friend has effectively killed your image.

I meant to put the person there. As i've taken so many shots. pure sky starts to become boring. It at least didn't give me the feeling of "being there", or "giving me any meaning". I just want something different. Initially, i have the same feeling of just a pure night sky would be the best. But after 100 ish shots of the same thing, i feel bored of the shots. Or else what distinguish my pictures verses other people's picture? that i can go can copy the other person's picture and claim it mine!?

Well, the composition/exposure is what i'm striving for here to get better in. I guess the person is too bright or too big to be disturbing, that's the general opinion, no?

I think the general consensus is the person need not be there? I understand your concept, but it just didn't work well this time around.;)
