ugh clearly I suck at night photos... IDK if I'm not in a dark enough area, or if its my editing, I cant seem to find the balance I see everyone else make. any good tutorials anywhere? I've been self taught besides editing methods for photography and I'm just stumped.

The EXIF says you used a 24-105L lens, you can try it again with your 28-70f/2.8L wide open but I agree with Jimmy that you have too much ambient light at that location. There's a lot of glow along the horizon plus I can see some lights on the left hand side in the background. You need really, really, dark skies for this stuff. That said, really like your composition and colorization of your foreground elements.

One other thing, consider moving your white balance to around 3200-3600 to blue the sky. 3200 is the recommendation that Jennifer Wu makes in her book on Night Sky photography.

I guess i dodnt think the light would be that bad with how fast i was out and seeing other people's photos like the one on this page you can see a whole bunch of yellow light coming in from the distance. But idk

I agree, very nice. Really like the silhouette of the horizon between the sky and water without overpowering the MW.

I haven't had a chance to go out and shoot for a while, but I finally got a free evening with clear skies.

Thank you. This one is a 5 image stitch. I believe the house was lit up when a car came over the Oregon inlet bridge, so some headlights about a 1/4 mile away. It hit just that top right section so I tried to tone it down a bit.
