My first attempt at shooting the Milky Way. I'm staying in a city so I don't get much opportunity to shoot the night skies. Shot with a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 on a 5D, 4-shot pano with 30s exposure (ISO 1600) each. Critiques are welcome.

Very nice. I like the mountains but haven't decided if the road is to distracting. The road is the first place my eyes went.

Nice shot but it exceeds the size limit allowed here. Please resize down to 1280 pixels on the longest side.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Bromo is such a beautiful place. I love your night photograph of it. We were there in 2002 and you just brought back a very nice memory.

Very well done.

Thanks. Bromo is indeed very beautiful to photograph. I'll be back for sure, probably at the preferred viewpoint 1 next time.

I like the shot and think that the road makes it somewhat of a unique shot.

I think it is a great shot and if anything, the road adds to it.

The road shows we all have such busy lives, and forget to look up at the beauties above and around us..

I like the contrast of the road and the stars -- our fast and short lives on the ground compared to the long life-cycles of the stars above.
