It's always fun finding interesting foregrounds to marry with the sky. Here is a photo from a recent Field Expedition to a place where we had enough light pollution to make it look like sunrise or sunset, enough texture in the terrain to add interest, and some stars in the sky, too.
Of course the stars needed quite a bit of coaxing as they are very shy about showing their faces in light polluted skies. I have three different "star bump" techniques most of which are described on my BLOG. The technique I used here is described in my "Dust-Subtract" method in the NP150d Webinar.
