It looks very nice!
It's definitely not a natural shot in that no way can you see a sunset and the milky way at once so it's more of an art/cgi look type shot than a pure landscape photography shot, but it is a very awesome creative art type piece, very nice comp and look, perfect comp really.
EDIT: hmm ok so apparently that is actually the moon and not the sun so they could both be seen at once, to some extent, but I have a feeling it could still never remotely look like this to the eye something just...Show more →
Ha ha... I am thinking a bunch of you guys ought to stay up past 8pm....
I can't tell you how many times I have been up at night and the moon lit up the place up like it was daylight. Shadows on the ground, the whole nine yards. The moon after all is a little mirror that reflects the sun. You might recall I have a night shot from arches I posted a few months back where the setting moon actually had star rays coming from it do to the moisture in the air, so it looked like sun, but it was shot at 4:30am with stars in the background.
It puzzles me though that you keep insisting that this shot is "photo art" and not a natural photo when it captures exactly what I saw with my bare eyes. There is no compositing, nothing that would take it from being a real, single shot image. It is a 2 shot pano, simply so I could get more of the scene to the left of the Milky Way in it to better balance the composition. The main photo in this image stretches from the moon on the right to just past the Milky Way on the left side in the frame. That's why I took a 2nd shot that gave m the stars on the left.
Perhaps you should define what "Photo Art" is? To me photo art refers to something that isn't real, that is made up. But again, this is a single shot, no hocus pocus magic... Just a straight shot that is processed exactly the same way I do almost all of my photos.
I can imagine there are very few people that present there photos as real, that would appreciate someone telling them that what they captured was fake and not real...
