A 3-light-year-long pillar, bathed in the glow of light from hot, massive stars to the top of the image. Scorching radiation and fast winds (streams of charged particles) from these stars are sculpting the pillar and causing new stars to form within it. Streamers of gas and dust can be seen flowing off the top of the structure.
Nestled inside this dense structure are fledgling stars. They cannot be seen in this image because they are hidden by a wall of gas and dust. Although the stars themselves are invisible, one of them is providing evidence of its existence. Thin puffs of material can be seen traveling to the left and to the right of a dark notch in the center of the pillar. The matter is part of a jet produced by a young star. Farther away, on the left, the jet is visible as a grouping of small, wispy clouds. A few small clouds are visible at a similar distance on the right side of the jet. Astronomers estimate that the jet is moving at speeds of up to 850,000 miles an hour. The jet's total length is about 10 light-years.
Composed of gas and dust, the pillar resides in a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina.

Taken from the 102nd floor observation deck of the Empire State Building. We're looking South over Downtown. In the back you can see the new One World Trade Center that almost looks finished. Opening will be in 2015. About five minutes later, the city was completely covered in clouds.

Only one of the countless starry nights in New Zealand. This one was taken at Lake Wakatipu, an inland lake in the South Island, during a moonlit night.

Taken at the Natural Arch (Bridge) in Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia. A popular destination for many years it has changed since I've last been there (many years ago) with the addition of a tree that has fallen through the cave roof and, unfortunately, a viewing platform which restricts photo options. Nonetheless I'm pleased with how this came out but I feel it is most suited to a wider aspect crop.
Edited in Adobe Camera Raw.

Composite of one of my Iceland Aurora shots (available on my homepage as wallpaper) and an old photo of Bannalpsee (Lake Bannalp) in Switzerland.
Once I finished combining the Aurora sky with the once daylight scenery of Bannalpsee, I used Flaming Pear's great Photoshop plugin -Flood- to create the Aurora reflections. I little tweak merges both layers so that the original ripples are combined with the new "fake" ripples of the Aurora sky. Then I mostly corrected minor artifacts and color fringing and last but not least, used Nik Color Efex to play around with the colors.
Let me know in the comments whether you liked it or what you'd improve. Enjoy!
