Milky Way and moonrise in my back yard, Lee, Maine, June 20, 2014, 01:55 AM

This is a single frame of a timelapse taken shortly after the moonrise (left of frame) had cleared the trees behind my pond and lit my house. There was a lot of beautiful sky glow that night (the green and purple hues).

This is the same RAW file exported twice out of Lightroom with two different exposures for the ground and sky, and then manually blended in Photoshop with a mask. Shot with a Nikon D700, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, and RamperPro @ 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 3200, and 30 seconds.
