Over the weekend, my brother, nephew and I went exploring in the four corners. While stargazing one night in Chaco Canyon, I took a few shots looking out over Fajita Butte.

This was shot with a Samyang 14mm F2.8 lens at F4 and a 25 sec. exposure. ISO 6400.

Great image Andrew. Some serious dark skies out there and great land structures to work with.

You've got a lot of good data hiding in the low end of the histogram. The black point is clipped and the flood of black is eating up some nice stuff including some of the dimmer stars. Your image editing is "on" so I made a quick adjustment to the jpeg to illustrate my point.

I really enjoyed your gallery, all outstanding work.
