Pretty proud of this one. Too bad that we don't have much of the milky way to see up here this time of year.

You should be proud, that came out amazing!

All corrected now :)

I think you execute it very well. Composition and light are both in your favor here.

And they say Peter Lik sells photo for $6.5 million! You should get 6.5 Billion for this.

Greatly thank you for sharing your wonderful work and word here with us.

Don't know what to tell ya man. That's the raw file, I thought I shot at iso10k and 10 seconds, but actually its iso8000 and 8 seconds. The foreground is not in focus, it's close but not totally sharp. The lines you're seeing to the right of him are either thin clouds or some gravity waves in the insane airglow we had that night. I stack images probably 99% of the time while shooting at night (focus stacked and/or exposure blends), so I have no problem admitting when I do stack photos. I guess the fact that you are in such disbelief that this photo is possible shows how amazing I am :-D


Any chance you'd share what you did in post processing with a newbie? Was it all in lightroom?

I do most of my processing in photoshop. I pretty much just do white balance adjustments and some cropping in LR. Then in photoshop I did levels adjustments, selective curve adjustments, noise reduction using nik define, and a bit of sharpening. I did do some layer masking because adding so much contrast to the sky made the foreground look weird so I duplicated the original layer and masked it back in after

jmlivingston:

Very nice.
Not only you found a nice dark sky but excellent rock formation of the location to go with landscape foreground.
I guess it is as good if not better than Big Bear lake area in terms of dark sky and I must pay a visit soon, before getting too hot.
