Beyond Earth by davidrichterphoto Beyond Earth by davidrichterphoto
The Milky Way rising over Balanced Rock in Utah's Arches National Park, shortly after sunset. I know this image won't break new grounds composition-wise but my top priority was to create something visually appealing of an often photographed icon.

Blend of two exposures. One for the foreground: 15 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 400. Another one for the Milky Way about 10 minutes after the first shot: 20 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 800.

may I ask how you got such detail in 20 seconds? it usually takes many overlays to get so much detail out of the milky way =) Would love to learn how to do this. (please respond!)
