Milky Way…

Milky Way over Fuerteventura

It’s not just another version of my Milky Way shot. The previous one was a single exposure, this one is taken from 4, 10 seconds exposures. I needed both photos for different reasons (artistic and so on). As mentioned this one was created from 4 photos which I stacked in Photoshop and blended together. This revealed some extra details and also the structure of the Milky Way Galaxy. I plan to write a tutorial about exact technique later this week (probably tomorrow) so I’m not revealing any details now (let the tension rise 😉 ). Hope you like it.
