I realize there are a lot of images of this comet on this site.  However, I wanted to show my effort at including the foreground.  This is done from my backyard about 11:30 PM a few days ago.  This is a single image made with a 7D MK II with 24-105 @ 105.  F4, ISO 6400 and 3 seconds. Processed in LR and PS.  Thanks for looking. One of these days I will get serious an learn better techniques.

I will never tire of images of what will be a once in a lifetime experience for all of us!
How amazing that you can experience and capture this from your own back yard!!!
Nice placement with the f/g vegetation and subtle light on the left side tree.
The lower and mid ground visible noise could have been lessened somewhat with multiple images and stacking

Excellent photo,,, Trees make for a nice FG framing, colors look like a night sky. Well done.

Thanks John,  I have a lot to learn about this photographic genera. It is certainly tedious, but fun as well.

Very nice shot. Something you could try to give the foreground more definition is to duplicate the image and then select the "screen" blending option. Adjust opacity of that layer to taste.

I really like this view, noise and all- it is so well places with a lovely glow on the horizon. I have seen the comet n my backyard, but haven't found it in my camera yet. Still hoping- appreciate any effort and love seeing all versions of this amazing event.

I love how the comet fits with the foreground! The warm color seems very natural and I love the subtle lighting on the tree.
