    Had to clone out part of the other tree (see previous post) but like this much better with just the one tree. I typically like the Milky Way earlier in the season when it's more horizontal but this might be my favorite Milky Way photo to date. I always struggle with how much to light up my foreground in MW shots. Thoughts - too bright or too dark? All comments are welcome.

    Used a small LED to light up the tree
    Pentax K1ii
    Rokinon 24mm 1.4
    10 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker
    ISO 6400
    F2.5
    10 seconds
    Edited in LM & PS

    I like this result as is - and I like the angle of the MW since it pretty much matches the angle of the tree. Very nice image.

    I would say that you nailed it Brandon! Really awesome work, and I would say that this is your best Milky Way to date. It's been fun watching you work continue to improve and get better over this last year.

    Don’t worry. I have many more from different perspectives that I’ll be sharing in the future.
