holy cow!
posted March 6th, 2013  
Interesting to keep the DOF true. For some reason, I would have thought that you would have focused on the stars, then refocussed for your shot of Danbo.
posted March 6th, 2013  
Danbo has been busy! He was playing in my local park this morning! http://365project.org/brav/the-stormtroope/2013-03-05

You need to submit this to every competition out there, it'd win hands down..... I am so in awe of this, I'd live to be able to achieve it but wouldn't know where to begin! Favx10
posted March 7th, 2013  
Very cool. I have never seen light trails captured this way (part of background and oof). The mountains in the background and the way you have positioned your Danbo completes it. - FAV
