Reviewing the Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 lens Can a $550 lens really perform as well as the $1750 lens on the right? Yes & No. However, for astro-landscapes, the Rokinon is AMAZINGLY well-suited. http://intothenightphoto.blogspot.com/2014/07/rokinon-24mm-f14-review.html

I'm definitely gonna read the blog to get the full details on how you made the shot happen. In regards to the bounce technique, yup I learned the hard way about how harsh light can be when directly aimed on a subject.

NightScape Photographer
Introduction
As a magazine photographer for over two decades, I've enjoyed a wide variety of assignments. I also enjoy helping other photographers achieve their Photo Vision. My current emphasis is on a night photography style I call "NightScapes": Starry night skies with a unique landscape feature --many of which are light-painted to enhance recognition. I also feature other photographers in my Into The Night Photography blog, complete with tips, tutorials, and equipment reviews.
Bragging rights
I've been a professional illustrative photographer and an international lecturer for 20 years. My clients have included IBM and General Motors, and have appeared in National Geographic, The Smithsonian, American Photo, and on the covers of numerous books.
