Great shot. Love to see some info. Was a lot done in PP? Exposure, etc.
That area is one of the best photo ops I've ever seen, and you have gotten a good one, keep it up.

It was 7 vertical shots stitched together in Lightroom. 13s exposures at 800 ISO.

Forgive my ignorance, but you formatted vertical, shot 7 separate shots at 13 sec. ea., and panned on your tripod to get the panorama effect?
Was there any "painting" of the rock formation, or what gave that fill light?

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge !

Yep, it took 7 shots or so to get the whole formation and the milky way in the shot. Below is a photo I happened to take that night of the back of the camera so you can see how much I was capturing in each image. It's a horrible, blurry example but hopefully it illustrates enough. Basically, I was a lot closer to the rock formation than the final image appears.

At the time of my trip, I wasn't 100% sure on the rules about light painting so I didn't have lights setup for it. However there was another couple that was hanging out and they had this lantern thing so I used it to my advantage




Actually, here's a photo from my phone from the location I was shooting from just to give some perspective.

I'm jealous! Thanks so much for filling me in. I'm an old fart who could only do this with film and pin registered litho film masks, so learning new tricks (for an old dog) is a good thing!
