Black Gold: My first serious Astrophotography picture!

I took this photo in the Spring of 2016. I have had my camera for just over a year now and this is by far my most "Wow!"-worthy picture that I have taken so far. It is a nine-image panorama each shot at ISO 3200, f/3.5, 30s with my kit 18-55mm lens. I know it isn't perfect, but I am very proud of it!

Thanks for taking a look!

Great foreground combined with a very nice view of the sky! Well done.

Great shot, a very offbeat foreground for the Milky Way, but it works well!

I like it. Foreground is similar to my part of the country, well, yes and the background, too...
