The Light in the Night

September 13, 2019

After gaining the owners permission to photograph this old farmhouse a brave friend and I placed a headlamp inside in 3 different places to light the house and waited for the alignment of the milky way above. I imagine many hearty meals were eaten here, joy was felt, and many hardships must have been faced in this rugged part of Oregon as settlers founded this land.

That's a really nice image. Well done. I might tone the lights down a bit in the windows though. They are pretty distracting, but that is a matter of taste. But basically fantastic.

I really appreciate the feedback. I can see how that would make the milky way just a little more the "star" of the image. Thanks Kevin.

Very dream like. Nicely done.

Love the shot, would also tone down or switch windows to off white or something less distracting. Night sky is stunning.
