Fishboat under the milky way
Lens: HD Pentax DA 16-85 f3.5-5.6 Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Capo Teulada (Italy) ISO: 2500 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F3.5 

This shot has been taken using the astrotracer O-GPS1, with 150 seconds of exposure, wide open at 16mm. The boat is slightly cloned because of the sensor movements. Any critique is more then welcome of course; feel free to ask any detail may be required.

I like how you processed the Milky Way. Nebulosity stands out but is not overprocessed.

Composition wise, the boat light could look better if it was further right, so the Milky Way and boat lie along the same diagonal. I realize no amount of zooming with your feet could have changed that in camera and I generally avoid relocating objects during processing (I'll erase distractions but I won't create what wasn't there).

Stars in the upper right show some star movement due to astrotracer limitations at ultrawide angles. Consider cropping a little off the top leaving the sides alone, provided you're not locked into a specific aspect ratio for the image.
