Should I go further with this one or can it? I kinda like the balance of the center of the swirl and the signals. No doubt the screener didn't like the signal bridge cutoff but that's how I personally liked it when I framed it up. Ideas?

It's noisy in the dark areas, and the signal floating in mid-air and disappearing into the trees isn't great for the composition. The sky itself is a mix between a barely visible milky way and short star trails that just isn't meshing well to me. From a diehard night shooter, I just don't see a solution to it.

Yea I feared that. Thought I'd give it a go. I won't be heading down any time soon and the remaining CPLs will probably be gone in that area by my next trip in October. Thanks anyways loyd

Be thankful you were there and captured them. I'm spending all my free time shooting the signals as they fall here. And in most instances, they aren't what RP is looking for. So it goes...

Ben,

I agree with Loyd. If you would've silhouetted the signal against the stars completely, you'd have a far better shot, in my opinion. Still, a good photo.

Maybe a quick burst or 2 of flash to illuminate the signal face as well.

To much dark area is the cropping. I too think it needs reshot and reframed. I to like the shot as is but the shot is hard to set up in the dark as you just can't see it on the LCD!
