Hello all, :wave:

Finally have a little bit of time to catch up on all things DA.  It was a great surprise to receive my 6th Daily Deviation a couple of weeks ago for my image "Before The Storm"
Before The Storm by CapturingTheNight

I once again must give a huge :hug: and a big THANK YOU to the legendary Nancy :iconanoya: for featuring the image and an equally big thanks to :iconrazielmb: for suggesting it.



On a sour note, I am so disappointed in how DA displayed my last image "Burning The Midnight Oil" that I am thinking about leaving here for good.  For someone who almost shoots exclusively night time images where subtle shadow detail is important for the overall feel of the image, the continued use of the horrible bright DA green to display our art on, which does absolutely nothing to display a piece in it's best light, is disgusting.  I have a properly calibrated computer monitor and I recalibrate it every week so I know exactly what I want to show the public in my photos but for some reason my last upload has been considerably darkened and it is not helped by that horrible background.  It looks heaps better on Facebook, and that is saying something.  Also the constant, pointless, site updates and "ads" to a long time fully paid up member is beyond a joke.  So please DA, lift your game soon and show some respect to your members and display their work in the best light possible, or I for one will be following countless photographers before me and leaving for good.

Your photos are absolutely astounding! I absolutely love pictures of the night sky, seeing all the stars, it's beautiful. I am an up and coming photographer and I was wondering if I could ask how you get pictures of the night sky? I really really want to do some night photography but I don't have the right camera for it, nor the lense or the filter I need, and I would like to get what I need except.

I don't know what I need to look for... and seeing your beautiful pictures I was just wondering if perhaps you could help? If not I understand, I am sure you're busy!

Again, I think your photos are absolutely gorgeous!! I just adore them :heart: Beautiful beautiful work~!
