Giuseppe Sapori - Road to the Stars 2

 

Although I still have several shots made in the plain of Campo Imperatore with some other landscapes and stars. But this will probably be the last of this series of Gran Sasso, to afford my personal goal to publish always my best pictures, and also not to bore you 🙂 This road is the other side of the road of my previous post, as you can see is going down and this side is the one that gets out and goes to the highway.

In this side of the road there’s not milky ( but it was behind me as the previous post), I really enjoyed the glow lights of the city reflected on the horn of the mountain to the left looking at the stars in the sky. The light pollution (if distant) are impressive favorably with those yellows contrasting with the colors of the blue of the night. In this photo I had fun playing on the flashes and colors of the lights in the distance to create a greater yellow effect.

Giuseppe Sapori - Road to the stars

We’re back on the Gran Sasso, this is the road that leads to the summit of the mountain to the valley of Campo Imperatore. I had stopped for some time with the car in this area and after shooting my main shot I started exploring different angles to find some other interesting spot.

I made this picture by a single shot taken at ISO 3200 f2.8 and 30 sec, I developed two different processing to the sky and to the foreground. At first I opened Camera Raw trying to set the correct values ​​to view all parts of the picture and saved the result. Than I opened the same image in Camera Raw setting values ​​of high contrast and  everything that could bring out the most of the beauty of the milky way. Open the two images as layers I then auto align them, with the help of layer masks I  replaced the first sky to the second. Other major initiatives were a dodge and burn to the colors of the Milky Way, sharpening, detail, contrast, noise reduction and LAB Coloring.
