Award Shortlist   

A starter for ten

By Arvorphoto    
This was a quick trip out to try and photography the Milky Way for a first time. The weather offered a glimmer of hope but sadly some low misty cloud curtailed getting a photo in astronomical darkness. The evening did still prove to be a good learning exercise including how to create a muted light for painting the pier (not used in this image) and threw up a few things to consider for future on location.

This image wasn't taken in astronomical darkness so it's not ideal and is 6 images stacked with Starry Landscape Stacker, it really should have been more images but this was in essence just a test shot.

Very good. It's a whole other kettle of fish, isn't it? I love the foreground.
I do wonder if there's more to be pulled out of it. The processing can reveal a great deal that's not immediately visible. There are plenty of helpful articles out there.

When I look at images like this and think about what I'm seeing, about what it means, it's overwhelming.

( And thanks, Daryl, for your award this morning )

I agree it can be overwhelming, Earth is only a tiny speck in the Universe and humans even smaller
