    At night, climbing high up from an undisclosed location in Iraq I shot this one. The oil fields glow hauntingly in the distance as tons of CO2 enters our atmosphere from the oil fields set ablaze by ISIS. The Stars are visable, the nights dark, except for light coming off the burning oilfields. This is a panoramic stitch of multiple 50mm shots. It is not an HDR, it is as you could see it. The stars were clear against a burning background. - South Of Mosul, Iraq

    William, You have got a pretty good eye and are in a unique location at the moment. Keep telling the story! You also have a lot of nice scene setting images, think about including a human element in your images. A person walking over the barrier would of set this image a part. Tell the story of the people around you going through this. Fill your frame, control the background and wait for the moments!!! I am here for you if you want to bounce some images to me! Stay safe!
