This is my first attempt at photographing milky-way. I wish I had a wide angle F2.8 lens but I think 16-35 F/4 did ok.
Any tips on PP milky-way images are greatly appreciated.

Harsha,

This is an excellent photo. The water even bends the saw way as the milkyway, excellent composition

You nailed it - wonderful.
It is a matter of taste, but I would try to adjust the color balance of the sky just a bit for some blue. Not sure what the d800 looks like for noise at 6400, would be interested in what Jim's experience is.

Hey Harsha,

What a sweet shot! I took a similar shot 2 years ago, it's a fun shoot. What is your question about how to process this shot?

As to David's question, the D800 does great at ISO 6400, but the key, like with all star shots is to not to underexpose it too much. Its with the underexposing that noise comes in, so being sure to bump the iso up as needed, like in this case, will help give star shots with minimal noise. The other thing I do is I process the the star shots in ACR, I have found that ACR does a better job with eliminating color noise in dark star shots than Capture NX2 does.

Wonderful shot here, Harsha. Makes me want to visit there again. Maybe go to the cooler side to put in a hint of blue to your great night sky. Very nicely done.
