The Milky Way from the central Oregon high desert; some of the darkest skies you can get out here. Single exposure using a new post processing technique I'm trying to master.

The trees on the left were illuminated using my cell phone's screen......I think the Facebook app was running.

Excellent image. That's a first for me, light painting with a cell – smart and effective.

I used a number of different luminance masks. Each one targeted a certain tonal range so I could boost certain levels of brightness or increase black levels without affecting the entire image. In the end it allowed me to really make the core pop without increasing noise across the entire image.
I'm really happy with the results, it's one of my cleanest images of the Milky Way to date without stacking. I'm anxious to learn how to stack images and apply this technique to it to see what the results will be.

It was shot with a 5D III and a 35mm 1.4L. There's some coma in there, but I really don't mind it, I think it adds a little character.

Thanks!
I tried a number of different things trying to get it right but at those exposure settings pretty much everything nuked it. I eventually taped my cell phone to a branch I found on the ground and used the screen to paint it. I only wanted a little detail it, I didn't really want it to stand out at all.
