Using a 8-15 mm lense at 14 mm F/4 ISO 8000 and 30 seconds .

Eta carinae nebula is visible in the lighten part of the milky way .

There was a strange "Tim Burton" feeling in these lands .

Daily Deviation

Suggester said; "The similarity of dream and reality in there is just breathtaking."

Celestial Maelstrom by alexandre-deschaumes ( Suggested by mkuegler and Featured by Anoya )
:iconlaanscapes:
Celestial Maelstrom has it. This well executed fisheye shot sucks you in and plays tricks on your mind, before telling you that the world we live in is a beautiful, magical place.

Starting at the base of the tree, we are directed upward while having to make several choices as how to continue our journey through the branches. But here is when it gets entirely interesting: Choosing either the top or the bottom branches doesn't matter. The tree is positioned with such careful contemplation, that both the top of the tree and the big branch on the bottom are leading the eye to the brighter parts of the Milky Way.

A lot can be said about Celestial Maelstrom, as it conveys a surreal sense of being there. Having used a fisheye for this composition, Alexandre justifies the title and walks away with a well composed, well exposed capture of the galaxy we live in.

It must have been amazing to be there in person! It looks so awesome!
I love the fish-eye effect too, it suits the composition really well and makes it seem as if the glow is actually a planet :D

Thanks for sharing this amazing scene!

Keep up the good work and have a nice day :)

The dreamlike qualities of this totaly won me over, I can still sit here just looking at it, being put at peace.
I hope someday I'll also be able to capture feelings in a photo on such an amazing level as you so often manage to do.
Just outstanding and inspirational! Heart

Oh wow! This is truly fantastic! I think celestial is the perfect word to describe it. Did you leave the shutter open for a while or is that just the clouds? Hm. Must be the clouds. I love the circularness to the image. It looks magical. Really cool. Makes me want to have been there.
