It was not sunset. It was a little over cloudy plus light pollution from surrounding cities

interesting composition. I like the cloudiness and light. Curious about your stars. Is that effect from your lens? What lens, if so?

The stars were there but were selectively made spiky using an astrophotography action tool.

Pretty cool composition with the fallen Joshua tree and nice colors in the night sky. I hope you got an image while standing in front of the fallen "tree" because that would be a pretty nice image as well.

Love the photo, composition & drastic color and light gradient, but I'm not a fan of the faux diffraction spikes.

Thanks for sharing,

Eric

There is a tutorial on how to make a Photoshop brush to make diffraction spikes here.

It is experimental for me. I found that night stars without a pattern such as a nice Milky Way looked pretty boring.

It is a free action I got from the internet. If you are interested, I can certainly zip it and send it to you sometime next week ( I will be leaving for Yosemite NP this afternoon for the fire fall luck).

The adobe ruin in the old Ryan Ranch makes a nice background for models.

Every month on the darkest night, I went to JT NP trying to get some photos of the Milky Way. Difficult, I have tried both high ISO plus 20 sec exposure and low ISO plus 5 min (using a EQ mount). Both were difficult to get the Milky Way to standout.

The pictures were taken in Jumbo Rock campground. You can see the movement of the Milky Way in the two photos. Rocks were lit up by campers fire or car light.
