Re: Milky Way

Good stuff Sury. Your comments track with what I understood to be the best way to capture these types of images.

Re: Milky Way

An excellent start. I see some hints of post production (maybe). What lens?
Most important, what do you think of the shots and what do you do next?

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots
