5. Scale them down, please. Takes way too long to download.

 

And then they get scaled way down by the browser anyway, wasting a lot of bandwidth.

They are spectacular, though! Well done.

9. heres how

30 sec exposure f8 iso 800. we took test shots so the sky would turn out purple with stars
we used an led light on the cactus for about 20 seconds,painint up and down. the rock on the right was lit by the ships spotlight for 10 secs (the ship was 1/4 mile or so off shore)

10. Very clever to add the photographers in the sunset image

It gives an ordinary sunset, which is probably the most photographed event in the history of the camera, a theme.

I like it. A lot.
