Contemplating the sky in the desert

This photo is a result of shooting at 10pm near San Pedro de Atacama in the Atacama desert, northern Chile. My wife and I drove to an observation point outside the city for some Milky Way shots when we some new friends. Raj and Sharul, this great Indian-British couple, were just parking the car at the same spot also for shooting stars, so we joined together for an hour of fun shooting. This is a two-shot pano stitched at Microsoft Image Composite Editor and then edited in Adobe Lightroom for white balance, tone curve and some contrast and saturation touches. I sincerely can not remember nor correctly identify who is that in this photo.
