Fingal Head Lighthouse by AXNLphotography Fingal Head Lighthouse by AXNLphotography
Went out tonight again to shoot the milky way at Fingal Head Light house, New South Wales, Australia. Absolutely loving this new area of photography! I haven't taken photographs at night a whole lot so I have decided to start giving it a go and add a new exciting look to my landscape photography . Thanks! Oh and for those that are interested: single exposure 30sec f4 17mm canon 6d iso 8000. The image was taken at 7:31pm, the sun sets in australia at around 5pm during winter so it was as dark as the night was going to get, plus there was no moon in the sky so the stars and milky way were super amazingly bright! processed with photoshop and lightroom.

Just some information about the post production for those who think this is not real, which a couple of people have messaged me about . I have boosted the contrast in the sky to bring out the milky way (using the curves scale in photoshop) as this is not as prominent to the naked eye (obviously) it seems unfortunately people think this is not possible and this photograph is not real/possible and a fake image :( All I can say to that is I am enhancing what is already there, the same as when someone saturates the colours in a photo. I suppose it is a very fine line for some people whether an image has had to much post production and is no longer a "true" photorgraph... anyway I just enjoy taking photographs that are eye catching and tell a bit of a story. The red tree on the right hand side of time image is from a red light on the lighthouse. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to get in contact or leave a comment and I will get back as soon as possible.

Thanks for checking out this image and I hope you also get inspired to do some night time photography, just like I once was! :)

Though this photograph was taken at night, Fingal Head Lighthouse is wonderfully illuminated by the lighting and awesome post-processing. *AXNLphotography really focuses upon bringing out the milky way here, and does a very good job at it too. ( Featured by 3wyl )

This is simply stellar.  Probably the best night sky shot I've seen due to the juxtaposition of light in the foreground!  Nice work!  :wow:
