Nocturnal Rapture

I finally got back to processing some more of my night shots from Anthony Lakes last summer. There were almost no clouds for all five days that we were there, which made for some fantastic nightscape opportunities.

 

Photo Details: Single Exposure, 24-70mm lens @ 24mm, 30 seconds, f/2.8, 6400 ISO

 

For those interesting in how I process my Milky Way shots, you can check the comments on this shot and it gives full details on another of my Milky Way photos. But, as I posted in those comments, I don't have a single consistent workflow or action, making adjustments based on what looks best to me. For instance in the shot above, the layers I used were soft light, multiply, and screen, all at 100% opacity, with some layer masking in certain areas to either reduce or increase exposure.
