From Keith about this image:
Depicting the Milky Way is a challenge for me.
Getting to the right place at the right time and with the knowing how to use the right gear is one set of challenges.
Then the there is the next set of challenges...processing.
What's the right color, the white balance...what's true? Is black the right color for the sky? What do you do with the greens and reds from the airglow that get picked up? What about the glow from the cars, parking lots and lodge depicted?
The ability of a digital camera to pick up so many different sources of light and color present a real challenge for me, every time.
I was only able to get a few sets of images from Angels Landing in Zion National Park before the clouds came in. This is the second one I've processed, and I learned a bunch putting it together. Hope you enjoy the results. And please let me know what you think/feel!
I love the way a 55mm or 85mm lens frames the night sky against geographical features. It looks big, like a portrait of a face, rather than a whole body.
This is a panoramic stitch using 16 photos taken with a 55mm lens. Used Lightroom and Photoshop to process.
Sony A7s, 55mm, 1.8 Sony lens at 2.4 and 12800 iso, 8 second exposures.
