Rocca calascio is an excellent solution for photographing stars and milky way, the ruins were illuminated by the lights coming from the castle that until 1 AM were still on, nevertheless the visibility of the milky way was still great!
I have been here collecting so many shots of a beautiful starry sky, beginning today with this first photo promising to post the others on the return of my next trip to Northern Spain. This is actually my last post before my trip, when I will come back with so many new content. Stay connected!
This is a single shot, I edited it before in camera raw decreasing exposures and increasing contrast, shadows and blacks
One opened in Photoshop I made some adjustments to lights and shadows using luminosity masks, than I made a big work of dodge and burn with I fixed lights around the milky way
With hue/saturation I fixed colors around the stars and I decreased the yellows around the ruins. I applied sharpen and orton effect with TTS Fast Panel. As final touch I reduced noise and I applied a small vignette to the frame
