milky way processing

a lot of people ask me how did i process the milky way. okay, here is the spoiler of the magic ;)


upper left: ugly original version, ISO 1600, 14mm, 0 ev, f/2.8, 30 sec.

upper right: I enhanced the milky way by adjusting temperature, tint, exposure, brightness, black, clarity and some curve works

bottom left: adjusted the curve to get better ground view

bottom right: blended two versions together with gradient layer mask, that's it ;)
