Description

Just a quick test, quickly edited. I'm still processing a stacked version of this field, that will have much better SNR, that is compromised in this frame - noise is to the floor! Nevertheless, it still looks great IMO and is making me eager to process the stacked file. Soon, it should be posted here.

Pre-processed in LR, WB, Exposure and Lens Correction, further (most of it) processed in PS CC, with Curves, Levels, SMI, Sharpening, Star Shrinking, HPF, Saturation and Lab Color. Used Nik Collection's Color Efex 4 and Dfine 2 as further enhancements.

Constructive criticism, comments and suggestions are more than welcome in the comments section. Thank's for taking your time to look at this image.

Taken from Rural Skies (Bortle 3-4; NELM ~6.2), from Cristina, MG, Brazil (22ºS latitude).
