WOW, thanks again everybody. I'm very sorry this is a 6 sec shot. When I finished the editing (45 mins later) I relized I did the wrong picture. There was no way I was going to redo it. My 2sec shot is no different than this. I will post it in a forum later.

Thanks again!

This is so stunning. I feel like I'm standing in the field looking at the sky. :) I like that it appears you didn't mess with it a lot in editing...it looks very natural.

6 seconds is not "exactly 2 seconds". The shot is very good though. I gave it a 9. I hope we all learn from this.

Awesome shot. We accidentally upload the wrong image...at least you had the guts to be honest about it.

I really liked this one. I knew from my own experience it had to be over 2 seconds though, and I am very disappointed to see it wasn't done in spirit of the challenge.

I have no experience photographing stars but it seems like it would take longer than 2 seconds to get that much light. I am curious was it dusk, dawn, or the middle of the night. Beautiful image still.

8 - Very nice. Difficult to crop at the top any differently, there's always going to be stars on the edge of the frame. Perhaps just a little more color/tonal range/depth may have given this a little extra, not sure.

I've been taking star trail shots all week. To get this effect, I had to use at least 20 seconds. Now if you are in some part of the world where the stars are closer, or brighter, it would work I guess. This also looks like a remake of the 4:00 - 5:00am challenge. Someone talked about doing that in forum, so this could be an out take for the Deja Vu Challenge, unless its the same photographer but from a different angle. I will watch for this one after challenge. Wish there was a bit more originality though in the shot from the 4-5am challenge.

Beautiful!!! If I were to change a nitpicky thing, I might make the roof redder but that's just my personal taste. Lovely image. 8
