For few nights now the Northern lights have been fantastic here in Iceland so I grabbed my camera and drove off the beaten track to avoid lights from traffic and the city. Since I was alone and didn't have a remote for the camera, I put the timer on and ran, had to do few shots until I managed to be there in time and stand still. The purple sky is lit up by the lights from the city of Reykjavik.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge

Those lovely northern lights never fail to impress and appeal to all the voters here. I like your composition, the diagonal works well. I suppose in terms of the challenge brief the purples are a little on the subtle side with the green of the aurora obviously dominating. Its good to include yourself to give a sense of scale and human presence. Well di=one for your high score and placement Benedikt.
