      WOW! Great shot. Excellent combination of various elements to form a cohesive whole.

      Great image. I like combination of yellow car trails and blue sky (and green forest too), trails curve, star trails, sun behind horizont. Great compo. Definitely exhibition grade image.

      Only one thing I feel a little bit strange/artificial – how is star trails composed into image. Is it real? Does it look this way? But I don’t know real situation of course.

        Yes, all stars are real and the orange colour on horizon is not sun it is something burning or burning sugarcane field.

        Our earth is spinning thus we feel that stars are moving. When we take long exposure of stars we get white streaks like this in the image.

      Of course I know how star trails look (white streaks). What I feel strange is how its composed into image, it looks it doesn’t fit. I don’t know how to describe it exactly. It seems for me that stars trails don’t fit into image. But its only my subjective feeling.

      I searched google for other similar images:
      https://www.google.com/search?q=star+trails
      Stars trails lead to horizont usually and don’t end before it. I found only one similar image where trails end some distance before horizont. Thats what (probably) I see strange.
      To be clear I absolutly believe you capture it like this. No problem here. I only express my first feeling.
      Regardless, the image is great. Print it. Exhibit it.

        Thanks,

        I think it happens because of haze on horizon. I shoot this image with camera facing at South.

      ……. ah …. this is supposed to be Shark Tank critique.

      Perhaps if the trails completed a wider arc into the misty light?

      But still gorgeous.
