This was a tricky one to edit, because of the light pollution, but I really wanted to attempt to photograph the milkyway over Wellington city.
this is a 26 photograph panorama, with each shot being
25s f2.5 ISO1250. Edited in camera raw and stitched together in Autopano Giga, final edits in photoshop.
I shot the very bottom row twice, the second time with an exposure time of only 6s so I could recover some of the blown out highlights in the foreground. In the end the raw files are actually really good, and the only part that got totally blown out without the use of the 6s exposures was right around the edge of the harbour.
