Starry Night by Jacob-Routzahn Starry Night by Jacob-Routzahn
After spending all of my first evening shooting this area, I kept shooting until the wee hours of the morning. This shot occurred before the full moon rose above the horizon and took away the clarity of the stars. This is a two shot blend. One is of the stars, the other of the foreground. For the foreground I used a headlamp to light paint for proper exposure. I tried to shoot a 35 min exposure, but it wasn't quite long enough. Also, the fact that there was another photographer there with me really limited the amount of times I could shoot that long of a shot without being in his way.

I've previsualized this shot for a long time and would love to redo it and better it. But I'm pretty pleased with this one for my first!

I remember seeing this on Astronomy Picture of the Day - apod.nasa.gov and being awed by it. Glad to have found you on DA! I wish I could see the same views of God's creation :)

I wish that one was mine, however it is not.  I actually used that one for inspiration, but did not, in the end, capture the scene how I was wanting.  But I'm glad you like it!

Oh! I see the differences now; it was a while ago that I saw this one: apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap080929.ht… But take on it is fantastic nonetheless XD I love all those colors you got in the sky.
