I’ll remove the less popular version from my profile.
This version is one image, while the other image is a combination of this image and a top portion of the vaulted ceiling stitched together. I feel they both have their merits, but your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks for helping me out!!

Setting up about 2 hours before sunrise, around 5:20 am, I first took a series of astro shots and kept taking pictures from the same spot until sunrise. This image is a composite of three images from the same spot with a 15 minute time period. Here, you can see three planets and the crescent moon. Venus is the brightest object, with Jupiter just below and to the left, and Mercury is very faint as it is just above and a little left of the crescent moon.

This image is a composite of two images: one shooting directly into the unimpeded sun to create the moody, heavy contrast. The other of the lighthouse to catch the glow.
In conceptualizing this image, I wanted to show the tension between the human-made light vs. sunlight. As you can see, nature always wins.

For this image, I shot a series of 8 selfies that are each one minute in length, one several minute exposure for the clouds, and added a previous image for the stars. It was just plain fun and the people who were also photographing these trucks thought I was crazy (maybe I am).
