River above, River below
An alternate to my submission "Starlit River". This version was my personal favorite of the set I took that night. While this version has a little less "pop" and "wow", it's subtle and a little more controlled. The first image, was more accidental, this was more calculated. My choice of composition for this photo was intended to capture the Milky Way in addition to the silhouetted tree, and the reflected sunset on the river below together in a single photo. Between inspiration and setup, the clouds had drifted far enough to lose that very stunning moment previously captured. Even so, when I set out that night, this is closer to the image I originally had in mind.
