Hi,

was that a "new moon" night or was there any moon showing when you took the shot?

I agree with above that the composition is simply a killer, perfect!

Great shot. A lot of these shots suffer from the difficulty of lighting the foreground such that it doesn't look unusually bright next to the stars. But in this case the light on the spray sits beautifully next to the MW. You did an outstanding job on this.

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.

Thank you very much. I see that Jim has already answered your question..

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

Thanks Jim. I was wondering if there were any special way of PP star shots apart from usual ACR adjustments. I was afraid to bump the iso as high as 6400 but D800 was able to deliver the goods.

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


Excellent for a first try! Do you have a larger version that we can look at?
