I recently spent two weeks traveling through the Southwest desert and I made it a point to shoot the stars at every given chance. This shot is False Kiva in Utah after the moon set. I had to wait until about 3am to hike in pitch-black darkness but it was well worth it! One exposure was for the stars and another was stopped down so the foreground could be painted with my headlamp. 5D2 and Samyang 14mm F/2.8. Enjoy!

I really appreciate the comments! I have a few others from the trip that I'm working on and will post when I'm done.

Very nice capture. What were your settings?

I used my 5D2 and Samyang 14mm F/2.8 for the shot. The stars were shot at ISO6400, F/2.8, for 25 seconds and the foreground was shot at ISO800 F/8 for 30 seconds and lit from both sides.

Here's one taken a week earlier in the Bisti Bandlands area of New Mexico. The Milky Way didn't quite line up as well as I wanted but I have a few others from this area that I'm processing. Same settings as above; Samyang 14mm, F/2.8 ISO6400 for the stars, ISO 800 F/8 for the ground and painted with my headlamp

Both of these are very very nice! How did you blend both exposures of the second shot?
