Did a little shoot with my buddy at the park
Two speed lights, triggered through slave sensors using another flash on the camera.
no diffusers.

Raw conversion
Clone out some city lights
Unsharp Mask
Sponge out the ground to make it grey
Save for Web

Not quite sure whether the ground actually counts as a "horizon"
I'll probably get some points off for this, but it's "tilted" and I've taken way to many photos this week to go out and do more shooting
thanks for understanding

Greetings from the Critique Club:

This is strong work and for my money the lighting is perfect. Great isolation of subject with due inclusion of that tilted reference plane too - that, by the way is sublimely lit.

Overall composition is very effective and Of course the 1/160 flash sync speed masks a much quicker light source, this has frozen the movement fantastically. The timing of the shot too is highly effective with plenty of air.

Overall, you've left me with little to critique. I'm not sure I'd change a thing.

I like this but it is a little on the dark side

Very nice. This could be a magazine cover.
