Tre Cime di Lavaredo
Lens: Pentax SMC DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL WR Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Tre Cime di Lavaredo - Dolomites - Italy

Here's a night shot of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, northern Dolomites, Italy.
The settings are: 18mm @f/3.5, 20 sec, ISO 4000
I kept a high exposure to see well the Milky Way, in PP (with RawTherapee) i've managed only the basic settings (white balance, exposure adjustment, color curves, contrast ...), custom white balance and noise reduction.
I think I could do better... Comments, opinions and criticisms are gladly accepted!

I like the sky and the glowing at the horizon,
the mountain in the foreground is quite noisy (ISO 4000 and 20s not easy for every camera).

Maybe you could try to darken the shadows a bit,
so that only the silhouette of the mountain remains.

I've tried to raise a bit shadow to emphasize the lighter part of the mountains and the scree, but in fact it would be better to pull them down and leave visible only the silhouette ...
Thank's for your overview Klaquax!
