I've debated sharing this image. I know it is no where near as good as the stunning images in this thread but then again it's my first attempt.

Honestly the fact I was able to find it in the sky and that excitement when the exposure finishes and you see it on the lcd screen has me hooked. My wallet is about to get a bit lighter, planning on buying a 12mm f2 rokinon/Samyang lens.

Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to eventually get a nice panorama I can print on metal.

It's by sharing and getting feedback that anyone gets better at anything. ;-)a It's a very fine start!
I don't know about the 12mm. Do you use a When I got into MW pictures, I bought the 14mm but on a full frame I find it to be too wide and the MW is too small on the picture. I've recently purchased the 24mm but I haven't tried it out yet. It's been raining for weeks (with lots of flooding in the country). I decided to go with the 24mm after seeing Mack's photos.
I've enjoyed shooting with my 50mm. The MW is so big, I love it.

Ah ah, same for me. :lol: A wall in my dining-room is still empty since last year. I desperately want to shoot a MW pano to hang it on that white wall. :-( Everybody says "that wall is empty". :rolleyes: I keep answering: "I haven't shot the image I want yet".

My first shot of the Milky Way. I'm new to this so constructive criticism wanted!!!

I realize that maybe a 35mm is too narrow and I would have been better off with something wider, but my 24-105mm is a f/4. Any tips?

Very true about the sharing. My next attempts with be with the 12mm and 35mm. I think the 35mm will be good for doing the pano, although that will be a whole other issue, very limited experience shooting and stitching for panoramas.

You went out and got a shot. Kudos.
Looks great for a first outing. Keep them coming.

One of my neighbors on the lake is way proud of his flood light :(

For this picture, I sort of like the light on the trees as it gives a better since of place & perspective. However, that only counts for this one shot!

I actually like the light on the trees, adds to the shot and doesn't interfere with the sky or reflection portion, it's also not overly harsh and blown out.
