“I snapped this one off at the Bonsai Rock on Lake Tahoe a few months back. It took me forever to actually find the spot but when I did it was well worth the effort. Two exposures were taken, one to capture the Milky Way and another to capture the foreground and make it nice and sharp. Both RAW files were processed in Lightroom to achieve the same white balance, next I blended the two shots together in Photoshop CS6. My final step was to bring out the stars with luminosity masks and do some final color corrections.”
