I think there should be a thread on Milky Way editing. It's more complex than I thought

I would love to have a thread dedicated to that. I wouldn't be much help myself yet.

Hmm, like this one https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1315537?

There's a bunch of 'em.

A little searching can do wonders... :-)

Although you would be hard pressed to find a better person to lead an editing thread than you one you posted.

I'm loving the images here. I spend my life driving trucks through the middle of nowhere in Western Australia, and the Milky Way is truly blinding out here, no light pollution for 100km in every direction.

Biggest problem is trying to find some foreground features! But I'm working on it.

Hi all

Has anyone taken pictures of the milky way with working lighthouses in the foreground? Does the lighthouse blind the sky completely? Any tips for shooting this sort of setup?

Here's a composite of lighthouse and milkyway in Hawaii. I know its not what you're asking, but its the closest thing I got.

Yep, like that. That's heavily processed (you can tell looking at the lighthouse).
Tips along those lines would be good, and also for more natural processing, if anyone cares to share!

Thanks. Yeah similar. I didn't realise the lighthouse where we'll be is a working lighthouse, so I'll have to deal with the lights. But I like the idea of shooting when it's off (like yours) and then exposure blending a night shot later.

Another photo with a working lighthouse and the milkyway. The bright light on the left is the lighthouse. Photo credit to my friend Randy Scott.

had a conversation recently with someone who hates the look of LE clouds, their opinion, and it isn't going to stop me from doing LE with clouds...in fact, I have been doing guest speaker presentations on my LE work, and it has been well received so far and I have 4 more bookings for it...

What is LE?

Probably, 'long exposure' clouds, but that is just a guess...
