    Way to hit a grand slam, Jason. I love so much about this photo. The star trails, Jupiter and The Seven Sisters are all interesting on their own, but what takes this to the next level (for me) is the illumination of the house and the trees.

    Thanks Elmo, the lighting in this image is ambient light from the street lights in front of the house and the neighbor's floodlight behind my parents house. The light is subdued from the the trees in the backyard so it added a nice touch to the lighting of the house. the tress on the side of the house were illuminated mostly from vehicle traffic and motion sensor lights that came on periodically, I was pleased with the autumn color against the blue night sky. Thank you so much for the compliments. I would have loved to capture a meteor but i was happy to capture Jupiter just above my daughters bedroom window. This was my first star trail composite and im glad it turned out well.
