I've posted this photo here before, but recently re-edited it. Since it was taken from a low angle with such a wide angle lens, the building appeared to be leaning backward. In this edit, I've corrected the perspective and adjusted the white balance. I think it gives me a better photo. I might add that I also had to remove a lot of stars from the photo. I could see the big dipper clearly, since I knew where it was, but other people never noticed the big dipper until I pointed it out to them. This looks more natural because you don't see all those stars when you look up at the big dipper with just your eyes. I'd appreciate any comments and criticism as I am thinking about using this photo in a show.

Why remove the other stars though? We like stars :)

Actually, I think it looks less natural. Indeed, it looks as if you've added the plough (as us Brits like to call it) in Photoshop. You may be able to retain some reality by dimming the stars except for the few that you want to emphasize. It shouldn't require much to make the plough stand out in a starry sky.

Here's the original photo. Remember, my objective was not a photo of Hayden Chapel nor a photo of the starry sky above Hayden Chapel. My objective was a photo of the big dipper rising over Hayden Chapel. When I showed this picture without any comment, no one mentioned the big dipper. Their only comment was that they never knew there were so many stars in the sky! When I said that the big dipper was in the picture, not everyone could find it on their own. Once I pointed it out to them, it was easy for them to see it. I've been in the mountains of Colorado, and had it take me a little time to find it, because you see many other stars, but where I'm from you don't really notice many other stars around the big dipper. That's how I wanted to show it.

It becomes a stylized portrait that is beautiful, but my first reaction was that it wasn't normal and probably created. True the PP was the vehicle but I think leaving the stars and maybe just strengthening the dipper stars might look more stunning? Just some thoughts.

Personally, I would just add small starbursts (with very pointy tips) to the stars you'd like to bring out? Then a touch of colour noise removal on the house and your good to go :)

I don't know what the big dipper looks like either ;)

Good idea. I used Topaz Star Effects and just added a bit to the Plough's stars....

Actually, I may have over-cooked it. I reckon it would look better if the Plough didn't stand out quite as much, but it shows that the idea is sound.

Why would you want to use f16?
