Path to the Milky Way

I arrived at this location so late; I didn't have time to plan for the shot. I had in mind to combine the Milky Way with an interesting foreground. I saw this beautiful ridge of rocks and captured the scenery with Milky Way in the back. I used my Vision of Depth method to capture the scenery. 


Nikon D810, Nikkor 14–24 mm f/2.8, Sirui R4203 L Tripod & Manfrotto 3WAY-Head
For the sky ISO 6400, 14 mm, f/2.8, 30 sec.
For the foreground ISO 500, 14 mm, f/6.3, 30 min. 


First, I edited the colors for both of the exposures with my Saga Presets (Add Some Bunch). For combining these exposures, I blended them together as shown in another tutorial in my eBook. For the final adjustments, I added contrast and ran another Saga Preset (Frozen).
