Rear curtain flash would have been better here.
That way you get no transparency like that.
Exposure for the background, and at the very end you have the person stand there and then "POP" the flash fire and the exposure is saved.

Cool! Rear cutain flash would take out the stars? I didn't know that! I though everything works on exposure, as long as the person is not presense at the location the stars will start to gather enough lights to be at the person's head anyways?

But i'll try that next time. Because at times, i want that

Your friend has effectively killed your image.

by the way, no one "killed" my image, because i'm the person who is setting up composition, so I should be the person responsible for having a good or bad picture. :D

I think the general consensus is the person need not be there? I understand your concept, but it just didn't work well this time around.;)

Thanks! I still want the person to be there. But what should i do (in terms of composition) should i do to make this better?

Ach.you are asking the wrong gal.lol.I am in the club of the fella not being there....with that lens it will be a hard composition, because he is going to be taking up alot of space?How about a sideways profile instead of his back?Side light for his face?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Wow, what a powerful lens, based on the upper right of the picture it looks like you captured the edge of the universe. ;)

Well, the composition/exposure is what i'm striving for here to get better in. I guess the person is too bright or too big to be disturbing, that's the general opinion, no?

Trying to include the guy in that shot will always have stars growing out of his head. Better would be to take a 2nd shot with him in it, & then blend the two shots together.
See post #18: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=762434

And post #13 in this, & the other links in the threads.
Malibu in the snow.

Adjustment Layers are another answer, but not the best choice for your shot. Post #9:
Airport runway shoot

Masks & Blend Modes are another:
