Stars Become the Night
Australian photographer Lincoln Harrison captivated the world with his first Star Trails collection with surreal swirls of stars in the night sky, created using long-exposure techniques. Recently, Harrison added a new collection titled Nightscapes to his gallery and it’s just as breathtaking. In this series, the stars seem to be just out of reach, shining like suspended diamonds in a colorful night sky.
Harrison uses the same technique of long-exposure frames to capture the brilliant movements of the stars. He shoots the night sky separately with a creative zoom technique, and then layers the images in post-production. His entire collection can be viewed at his site.
And poking around Retronaut gets even better! Buried in there were pictures of “smiling Victorians,” taken from a Flickr group of the same name that is chockablock with adorable photographs:
These two kids really struck me. They’re so delighted and delightful!

Manhattanhenge HDR (by ih8nyyanks)
Of all the Manhattanhenge photos I’ve seen recently, this is the finest. I hope it’s real! I particularly love the people standing in the middle of the street to get it.
