    Have you tried adjusting the exposure between +1 to +2? then apply some feathering effect from photoshop itself to put some punch on the image..

    Perhaps you could share what setting did you use, and perhaps we can work from there...

    I caught some during my trip to Finland this year. You could see it in this forum thread.

    Good luck to your pursuit of the northern light! I was told that the higher chance of seeing the aurora borealis is to go there during the 1st quarter of the year.
    I was in Europe in October last year but I decided not to go far north(Norway) because there was only a small chance of catching this wonderful northern light during that time of the year.

    If anyone has been camping at spaceweather.com (and their aurora gallery), you will have noticed that since Sept, Aurora has been sighted everywhere in the usual countries, and at times in the not so usual countries.

    Great time to head northwards to catch them - more solar winds/CME due to sun flares are expected!
