    The first one is much better than the second!

    In fact the first one is AMAZING

    Re: Over cooked?

    Hi to 2 pals form the sister forum.

    The 1st is posted in the milkyway thread there. As for processing, I don't really know what I did. I just use the Affinity program, hit every know slider till I saw that.

    Then I met a fellow photog, that said I shouldn't do that. All I need to do was just to bring up the shadows and that's it. so that's the 2nd photo.

    The first would definitely be my choice too.

    Hi Heating man.

    I was at Mt Bromo on a photographers outing. With the help of Birdboy from this thread on Milkyway.

    All credits must be to Birdboy as he was a great help in giving me the setting to do it right.

    Camera, Em1mk2, lens, 7-14 @ 7mm, /2.8, ISO 1600.

    The Speed is determine by the Astro Photography 400 rule is 400 divided by the focal length (7*2) Which should be 28 sec but being not confidence to this, I use only 23 sec.

    The first picture, If I am not mistaken, I processed the 3 ORF of the same settings in Photomatix and selected Tone mapping. Noise reduced and that's about it.

    Sorry for a late reply, but I still prefer the first photo. I think this last one looks 'overcooked' though.
