A real starry night, crisp and cold, when there are so many stars you can't find the constellations. Perfect scene for the hunter Orion, half hidden in the background of his galactic neighbors, accompanied by Sirius, his faithful dog.

What a great camera and lens for night shooting.

I wonder what would it take to capture the colors of the stars, particularly the yellow giant Betelgeuse (upper left on the hunter's body).

Thank you all for your votes and comments!

Very nice. Good tones and detail. I like how I can still see the stars through the tree on the right. Interesting crop too! 9 (voted earlier)

Strong sky composition. Clearly the subject is the sky, and the ground makes a nice frame for it. Nice job getting crisp stars, and minimal noise in the background.
