I gotta say...it looks so unnatural that I just cannot like it. To me...everything is just way overdone and doesn't come anything close to real life. Some will like it, and some won't.

I'll admit it looks vastly different here than on my PC. Even looking at it on my PC. Much more toned down here in PS.

well...it's up to you, but everyone will see it as you posted it here, so if you're happy with it, then i guess keep it posted.

Wait...what? My instruction in taking pictures in total darkness is to take a headlamp to see what you're doing, so you don't fall or hurt yourself. Now...if you want instructions on how to process the images that were taken in total darkness, that's another thing.

I agree with so many people here that the photo looks like an overcooked image.
You might want to reduce the exposure by a couple of stops in the non-milkyway parts of the image, and tone down the saturation to one-forth in the milky way parts.

Aside from the processing..............how did you shoot this? Is it a single wide-angle lens, or did you do a stitch?

i have to hand it to you for thinking outside of the box for the composition! Execution... well that is the beauty of photography/art. It isn't my style and that is ok.

I like it. yes its different. its gritty. the green is over saturated as is most of the image. I still like the final effect.
Thanks for sharing.

Yes, sometimes different is good. I’d turn down the exposure a bit, layoff the sharpening a bit, but otherwise a unique composition.

OK Heres a toned down version not from a new uncalibrated monitor.

Probably need to drop the saturation a hair due to the brightness drop.

drlane, my suggestion is look at a lot of other images that are being posted on the landscape forum, and evaluate your work against there's. It will give you some perspective.

You are not going to get a lot of likes from other photographers, however the general non photographic public will like this. I see it all the time, oversaturated noisy images getting so many likes on social media.

If you like it, that's all that counts.
Happy shooting

I was just reading about art shows in another forum and this one person did a survey at a high end fine art show in Chicago. He surveyed the photographers at the show and the biggest sellers overall based on the show were HDR and highly saturated prints.

I go to a lot of galleries when I travel and the photography being exhibited looks great, but every gallery looks the same. It’s the prints that step out of the norm that get the attention, not the ones that are seen hanging in every gallery.
