It was just the beginning of Aurora Borealis show in a cold night over Reykjavik city. I stared at the sky for not less than 2 hours and I can say that it was really unbelievable.

WOW! Very unique, nothing like it. This image is so well taken, the stars look sharp, as to the city lights. Orange and green go well against black sky. Well done! How long soes that stay in the sky, and how quickly does it move? Superb.

The picture is a very interesting... Nature can present a really nice show...
I have 2 questions:
- these bright spots... are they stars?
- what was the exposure time? a few seconds?

a very interesting shot.. it would be very difficult to show this phenomenon and i think you've done very well. as it is only 2D, the colours and depth still show a great experience. the city lights add to the effect. well done!

Lovely colors and an interesting flow in the whole picture. The sky seems so smooth compared to the rest that is a bit harsher.
Understandably the lights at the bottom are a little harsh, but it goes with the overall picture very well.
Only question: what are those lines shooting up from the bottom right corner?
A wonderful capture! TFS!

Well done this pov and presence of city lights add difficulty for exposition but here you've done a good job.
