Good capture!

Cool colours in the sky... i like the small hints of red in the cabin. It feels like you have been travelling in the dark and cold for a long time, and seeing that small hint of red warmth reassures you to keep going.

Very nice mood shot.
What is the light at the top? The moon? No can't be, too bright.
Surely it's not a star, so bright and large. Or was it added in afterwards?

Beautiful landscape, so cool to see it by moonlight.

some things are worth freezing your butt off for. this is one of them. regardless of the score you wind up with, i'm quite sure nothing will compare to how you felt coming down off the ridge.

Nice use of negative space to depict the isolation.
03/16/2009 05:44:14 PM
great capture - keep up the good work
03/16/2009 03:22:02 PM
an amazing photograph .. the lights in the cabin seem very welcoming in this very bleak and cold scene .. great shot .. :)

This is one of those shots that makes you look at it for a while. There are so many interesting aspects to the shot. I love it. A shot to be proud of. I like the stars and the moon (sun?) and the mountains, just awesome!
03/16/2009 04:04:17 AM
Well captured and presented.
03/15/2009 04:55:57 PM
Nice shot. Almost looks like the sun and stars.
03/15/2009 12:07:18 PM
A good long exposure that really utilizes that moonlight, but all the same, the ground still feels a tad dark.
03/15/2009 10:18:41 AM
Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.
03/15/2009 10:14:21 AM
Wow, I've never seen a night look so much like day. Amazing scenery.
03/15/2009 05:18:31 AM
03/15/2009 01:40:34 AM
Wow, I love the perspective of this shot, it's truly epic. Great job! 8.
03/15/2009 01:00:06 AM
good capture of details , lacking a little wow factor, 7
03/14/2009 11:15:36 PM
the lens flair on the moon is a little distracting imo
03/14/2009 10:28:41 PM
beaufiful placve, i like how the cabin windows are lit up
03/14/2009 07:34:01 PM
Would have totally missed the cabin if not for the title. Nice stars in the sky, bright moon-lit landscape. Wouldn't want to be outside on a night light this.
03/14/2009 12:04:33 PM
good exposure...like the glow of the house lights
03/14/2009 09:36:44 AM
Such a dreamy, I want to be there shot. You captured the cold beauty of winter but at the same time, a cozy warm home. Like how the moon has rays the color overall inside the shot. nicely done.
03/13/2009 11:01:41 PM
the highlight at the top tends to draw your line of vision there distracting from the majestic scenery you had to work with
when i scrolled down and took it out of the image ..... WOW
03/13/2009 10:41:29 PM
Nice long exposure. It looks more like afternoon with that bright moon. Very neat.
03/13/2009 08:13:49 PM
night? hehe what amazing mountains.
03/13/2009 02:31:20 PM
Nice place to live, great feel of space. Still doubting if I like the moon in this one. Like the lights in the house though, means someone is living there.

If this is night and that's the moon... Very intriguing shot. The valley and sky look like day, but the stars in the sky and the glow from the cabin say night.

Great exposure in the moonlight

I love starry snowy nights. Very nice. There is a slight blue halo on the moon which is a little distracting, but not too much.

personally i would get closer to the cabin, and cropped bottom of the picture more to focus more on the cabin itself.

I just want to walk down to that little cabin and get snug - lovely image, thank you :)

A DPC classic.....

I think I would like this better if you cropped out the bottom portion of the photo to remove the hill on the right.

nice long exposure almost looks like two moons
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:09:18 AM
Not very "long-exposure friendly" night with the full moon?
I like the composition. I am not sure what could one have done, but i would be have liked it better to have that cabin highlighted more in some way

almost lose the cabin in this. But neat pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:10:50 PM
Wow the Sun looks so far away from us. Good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:41:24 PM
Is that the moon? The over exposure makes it a distraction for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:36:18 PM
I thought it was daylight and they were dust spots til I read the title! Nice capture.

Gorgeous shot. Love the immensity of the sky

Very pretty!

03/11/2009 08:56:49 AM
Very serene. I like where you were going with the shot. Too bad the moon got blown out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:36:48 AM
A beautiful night look. Nice so see the lights in the houses. Perhaps the whole could use some more brightness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:38:38 AM
Wow, what a view from your cabin
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:33:52 AM
ground looks nice... would have been interesting to use two exposures, with a shorter one to keep the moon from blowing out
