Revisiting Photos - Milky Way

by Amber Josephine October. 25, 2017 469 views

So after yesterday’s efforts of trying to capture the International Space Station, I also walked away with a number of photos that had traces of the Milky Way showing.

Considering this is no mean feat in the middle of suburbia and all its street lighting, I knew I wanted to spend some time playing with these images.

That said, the processed images I eventually finished up with were OK, but not something I was truly happy with.

Fast forward to today and a fresh approach to editing one of the photos. What began as just a bit of mucking around and playing with settings turned into something much more remarkable than I could’ve imagined.

Milky Way - Take 2

Sure the framing could do with some work, but armed with a bit more practice at enhancing the night sky, hopefully I’ll be better prepared next time.

Really nice - wish I was able to capture the night/sky.

Thanks - this really was a lot of luck to get this shot. Never imagined I’d get a shot of the Milky Way with so much light around.

It's amazing - IPhones and night sky just don't mix well

No sadly. I have it in a previous post passing very close to the moon, but the overexposure was ruining the effect of the Milky Way.

Night sky shots can be pretty tough to get the exposure just right....
