Milky Way and Venus rising, Australia, 9/02/2014

Taken a few minutes after my previous image upload "Shimmer" when Venus had risen above the horizon to dominate the dawn sky.  Tried a bit of light painting on this one.  Modern LED lights tend to give a very blue light at night which looks unnatural, but I recently trialled a torch with Xenon bulbs and I really like the light it gives.

Canon 5D MkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 3200, 30 seconds.  The streak next to the tree on the left is a satellite.

You really know your stuff! All of your work is very inspiring, and this piece is one of my favorites.  You capture the beauty of the night sky while composing water reflection on the bottom third of the piece.  I can tell the composition was well thought-out.  The trees help frame the shot quite nicely which helps the overall theme of nature present itself.

do you use high iso noise reduction in camera or ps?

I never use in camera noise reduction.  I'm never patient enough to wait another 30 or so seconds for the camera to do a dark frame.  I do all my noise reduction in post processing and use a few different methods in combination.
