Orion the Hunter

A shot of the constellation of Orion rising over the trees in St. Patrick's College Maynooth.


I had a lot of problem with light pollution in this shot. I did my best to work around it, but the image isn't perfect. I started by converting to monochrome with the monochrome mixer and trying to pull a lot of the reds out to get the sky fairly dark. I then ramped the contrast right up, and finally very subtly added a deep blue tone to the whole image to try get a more realistic sky again.
