The Milky Way of War Elephant by palmbook The Milky Way of War Elephant by palmbook
Thong Pha Poom, Kanchanaburi, Thailand is a peculiar place where everything seems to be related to elephants. Two notable places are Mountain of White Elephant and Hill of War Elephant. Plus, the milky way in Thai means "Path of White Elephant." Put three things together, and you have three elephants!

Here, I depict two of them - Hill of War Elephant in a stormy night, and Milky Way!

The picture is a panorama of 4 pictures. I hope it's not too long vertically :P

Hi! This image is very beautiful! Great idea to shot the milky way with a storm as background!

But I noticed that:
- Too long exposure time. The stars are not perfect. You can try to increase the shutter speed and the ISO speed by 1/3 of a stop or to reduce the focal length.
- Your shadow in the foreground. Be careful next time.
- Foreground is overexposed. You could use a graduated filter. You can add it in PP too.
- The airplane's light. You can remove it in PP.
- Bad stacking of the upper images, I can see the blur of the stack. I can see it in the lower images too.
- Try to modify the colour temperature, the milky way have some white in it.

I hope that can be helpful for your next works!

This scene is surreal, a storm in the horizont, the milky way, and the sun rising behind.
