    Yesterday evening was the peak of Leonids meteor shower over here. I was lucky and got a big one! It almost hit the ground!

    Thanks!

    I have never published anything? Any idea where? Or can you recommend a good read on the subject of selling photos?

    Nice shot! But fix your whitebalance :p Upload it to 500px and enable it in the store there for example...

    Thanks. I wonder why do you think the white balance is off? The cloud is lit by a nearby city and the stars look white, aren't they? Thanks for the suggestion!

    In my opinion it just looks a bit better if the whole picture is a bit cooler. The orange cloud doesn't look very natural although it's lit by a nearby town. In the end it's up to you how you like it better, for me like I said it's a bit too much orange!
