Another MilkyWay over Tarryall Reservoir

Taken the same night as the one in my previous post, this shot was taken a little earlier when the sky was a bit clearer. This is a single image and not a panorama like my previous shot.

Click on the photo to see a larger version in my Smugmug gallery where prints (traditional, canvas, metal and thin wraps) as well as a variety of keepsakes (postcards, mugs, mouse pads etc) are available.

Technical details:

Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon 16-35mm 2.8 at 16mm F/2.8. One 30 second exposure at ISO 1600.  The RAW files were converted to TIFF using DxO OpticsPro applying noise reduction, lens correction, white balance and several other small corrections. Then in Photoshop CS6 I used levels with a gradient to reduce skyglow at the horizon then several iterations adjusting light levels, color and contrast.
