Rising Light

Early-morning starlight from the Milky Way rises over Hollow Rock at Grand Portage Reservation during late-March. Multi-image stitched panorama comprised of 24 vertical photos (12 each of foreground and sky shots). Foreground exposures: ISO 800, 90 sec., f/2.0. Sky exposures: ISO 1600, 10 sec., f/2.0. Post-processing workflow: Initial CB and minor exposure adjustments in LR for both sky and foreground, then each 12 shot sequence (sky and foreground) ported separately into PS CC, aligned, & stitched. Then both stitched panos loaded as layers, blended using luminosity masks, and manual brushing technique; then various final contrast adjustments applied.
