The Light in the Night

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.

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

It's images like this that make me wonder why I left Burns for Binghamton, NY. (Sigh)

Also, have to reinforce my approval for seeking permission to shoot on private land. Well done. :)
