Last three images are Magical.
Well done, well Done, WELL DONE.

Not sure what makes Milky way so magical and fairy tale, may be we see a part of ourselves in there.
Though has nothing to do with me, here is a link that does boost by Milky way so let me share it with you:

Here's two from last year when I tried capturing the camelopardalid meteor shower. The weather was pretty crazy and a storm went right over top with lots of lightning. I was too chicken to setup to get a better vantage point and opted to stay in the truck with the camera remotely triggered on a tripod.

Thank you samsen :) :)

In other news, I have one image (out of 10 others) shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards (external link) and 3 (out of 40 others) images commended, so that is VERY exciting news :) find out more on the 23rd March, hopefully (fingers crossed!!!) we will be off to London in April :)

Wow! Awesome pictures! We don't need to know how chicken you are...only that the pictures came out tremendous! Next time when you tell the story, you "drove through the heart of the thunderstorm" to get the best location for the pictures ;-)a

Holy smokes! Can I ask how you edited this and got so much detail and colour from the mw?
And I guess the exposure specs too?
So, so good dude!!

:)

Exif data is kept on all my shots and can be seen on the Flickr link? But it doesn't show the aperture which was ƒ3.5.

To 'bring' out the details, you need to capture them well when shooting? So dark skies, fast sharp lens and a camera that can handle the high ISO noise well – although not as important as the lens as my 600D still performs very well. Editing is the easy part, just mainly contrast/clarity adjustments :)

Here's two from a fishing trip. A streetlamp beside the orgeon inlet fishing center sign went out for ~45 seconds and I was able to get some sort of milky way. It flickered back on for a moment for the second image of the stitch and I did lose some detail on the posts and ground.

Here's a fun one, not your everyday fishing photo. He hadn't seen the milky way or caught a drum before the fishing trip.

Great pic. I love when there are low fast moving clouds. That fish is a red drum, but it was in the slot size so commonly called a puppy drum.

Thanks dude! I thought there may have been some luminosity masks going on but obviously not :)
My 5d 16-35 2.8 combo gets plenty of exposure at 2.8 30 secs iso 6400 but still don't have the colour and detail of yours.. I'm across the ditch from you (hobart) so we're blessed with dark skies too! I'll keep trying anyway!
What lense was that anyway? Couldn't see it in the exif
