Moment of Elegance

A view of a beautiful night from last autumn. I was really enjoying this quiet moment. It is me in the picture - I had to adjust the perspective quite a bit to get it straight like this, but it was worth it.
 

Equipment & Exif

Nikon D800, Samyang 14 mm f/2.8, Sirui R-4203L Tripod and Hähnel Giga Pro II Remote
ISO 3200, 14 mm, f/3.2, 30 sec. 
 

Post-processing

For the base edit I used one of my Star & Milky Way Lightroom Presets: Landscape - Stars. 
In Photoshop I straightened the subject using Puppet Warp -tool. I also added some detail to the stars using one of my techniques seen here: Night Photography Tutorial.

Print of this photo is available here.

On My Way

I was driving through some interesting road, one night about a week ago. Stopped the car and took this photo. I find something really interesting about roads. Many would just say that it's just a road, but it has so many different meanings for me. 

Where are you going, what are you expecting to find, is there something surprising waiting around the corner.
