Here is an image of the Milky Way from my recent trip to Arches National Park.
It was a new moon with the milky way core best seen just before twilight in the wee hours of the morning.
My only clear night was at Fiery Furnace, but the foreground did not work out as planned, so the next day I made a twilight shot in the same direction for something I liked better.

Nice work! I would use a bit less noise reduction on the Milky Way though - it looks a bit too smooth to me.

Agreed! Noise adds a bit of sharpness to the MW :)

Nice shot :)

I agree, I think you could've gone with less NR on the sky..looks just a tad soft. Amazing image though! The foreground exposure is beautiful. Curious what gear you used for this? A friend I go out shooting with has been using the Sigma 35mm 1.4 for some night stuff and I love how it makes the milky way look. Using super wide lenses is great at night, but using a 24 or 35mm makes the MW look huge!

anyways welcome to the forum

very nice!! Yeah some of people mentioned about softened milky way. I think it's good and all is up to the photographer's intention.

but if your intention was to make that image seem more natural, balancing the softness of your background milky way and foreground should help you.

It seems like compared to the milky way, foreground rocks and mountains are too sharp and clear, and some may think it's composite of two different images. (i'm neutral to digital composite to some extent and don't want to offense anyone who uses such technique)
