Volcanic Twilight

Just reprocessed this guy, the first image in my "Volcanic Twilight" series.

 

Things were bothering me about the old one - the shadows were too harsh, the sky was too bright, it was too magenta/purple overall, and the stars were too bright and sharp. I like this one better.

 

It's also funny, I spent 7 hours on the original PP, and this one took 1-2.

 

Two exposures: one for the landscape and sky (2-stop grad over the sky), and one for the stars about an hour later.
