    Personally I would have cropped or removed the front of the boat from the picture, just a little distracting.

    Never the less its still a nice shot. :smashin:

    Thanks, I had many shots without the front of the ship in so with thought it'd add something to it with having something in the foreground, like in a typical landscape shot.

    I must have took over 200+ photos of the Aurora Borealis over 2 nights.
    The moving ship wasn't ideal for long exposure (10-20secs) shots, but was the best way to see it live, away from artificial lights, a warm cabin when it got too cold and able to experience it with a few hundred people.

    It's a great shot but I do have to say that (not having sen the Northern Lights myself) it doesn't make me think of stopped motion...

    Yeah, I thought that might be the problem. Having seen them multiple times, myself, I can see how this would be stopped motion. But I can also understand if someone doesn't see it :)
    Cracker of a shot, though :) Nice shapes!

    p.s. they DO move, constantly, like a silk curtains in the wind.

    Nice shot, but doesn't say "stopped motion" to me. Shame it's invalid though, it's always nice to get a lot of varied entries in.

    I think I missed the 'stopped motion' subject along the way in my haste.
    It was my first entry. I'l pay more attention next time :blush:
