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!

Klöntalersee is a natural lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. Since 1908, it has been used as a reservoir for electricity production. The dam's construction substantially increased the lake's volume.
This is certainly one of my favorite lakes in Switzerland!

Morraine Lake, AB, Canada is the starting point of the Larch Valley hike. Hoping for better weather, a friend and I set out for a light day in the mountains. The clouds happened to offer a nice light for this shot.
Shot from a very common spot to photograph. I believe this to be a very different mood and angle than the norm, though.
Editing with HDRSoft Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.

This picture has been taken in 2013 in Corsica. It shows Ajaccio on the opposite shore, the main capital of this French island. Originally I wanted to further abstract the sky with falling stars but gave it a pass as most people probably don't like that. If you're still interested to see it, head over to my website and have a look.

Skógafoss is a waterfall situated on the Skógá River in the south of Iceland at the cliffs of the former coastline and is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 m (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft).
According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall but I couldn't find it...
