49 comments and 10 favs thus far so I can't say much. Excellent shot but a little more light on the foreground would have made me want a print. A fantastic shot.

Nice shot Fritz! I love Orion up there! Good choice of sky to use with Orion and the Milky Way and of course the moon just out of frame.

You’re the man Fritz! What a great photograph. This photo has motivated me take a trip to the mountains and try some time exposures.

Congrats on another well deserved ribbon.

very pretty

Excellent composition--I like the rounded shape of the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2005 10:09:43 AM
Your very lucky to be able to see such a sky. The last time I saw such a sight was when we had a power cut. Although my daughter lives on the Falklands and she say such sights are to be seen every night. Great shot

Very sharp. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2005 08:25:17 PM
Woaaaa. Congratulations on an image that despite it's place, is well worth a favorites addition. No wonder it had to be validated. People probably thought it was too good to be true. I like the scene of cactus, green, blue, stars. Highest score I am giving thus far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2005 09:16:05 AM
This is such a magical shot. The light of the moon coming from top right and the light of the sun on the horizon are lovely. Also, the curving topography cut through by the cactus makes this shot one of the best in this challenge. I give it a 9.

I love the atmoshpere of this photo.. The Landscape awakening as the early Sunrises.. Superbs .. well done !!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2005 11:43:56 PM
I hope you sell some prints of this one. Great composition and tones. I like the splash of color from the sun going down, and the cactus just completes the picture.

Beautiful silhouette...dreamy and quiet, good for a travel brochure......

I really like this.....Makes me wish I was there...

Great capture. Nice DOF and composition. Only negative I have (minor) is the halo around the right side of the rock formation (perhaps from selecting the sky to post-process?). 9

stunning

I can almost hear the coyotes howling. Seriously, this photograph is something one would expect to see on a travel brochure. It has a very alluring quality to it, and makes me wish I was there. Too bad the moon was not a tad lower, but you certainly have oodles of stars. I can't give you as many points as there are stars in the sky, but I can give you 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2005 03:34:51 PM
beautiful! perfect for "stars" Where does one live when they can actually photograph stars? I thought I saw a star once.... 10

Great shot!

03/21/2005 03:24:13 PM
I like the shot and great detail in the stars and just barly in the rocks. The half moon at the top looks out of place. I would like all in or all out, but the half way doens't work for me. But still a good rating. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 01:23:19 PM
Wow! In fact, it has an incredible wow factor! And I don't even like the dessert (at all!) But I LOVE this picture!!!
