Oh (insert expletive of choice here) yeah Leasha!!! Wonderful capture. 1/3 to 1/2 moon phase is rapidly becoming my favorite time to shoot night sky scapes. I have actually been waiting for this to appear in my message feed ever since Ruth mentioned on FB that you were all out shooting a few nights ago. One thing I will say though is it appears a little bit to purple on my screen. It may well be DA messing with your image again. Do you have this on your website?
Thank you so much Greg!! Now that I have the night shooting somewhat down, I need to work a little more on my post processing.... The magenta didn;t change it much, it was more the blues, but if I went up too much on the blues it turned the stars blue and I wanted them mostly white... Also, with the moonlight, it seems to change the exposure, although I love the way it lights the foreground object, no light painting at all.... I'm torn between a little moon or no moon and a little light painting I will just keep practicing with shooting and processing and someday I may be close to as good as you are, now time to try some night panos!! I'll be in the desert this week for the full blue moon, lets see if I can make something happen with that!! :hugggle:
