Photoshop or not Photoshop?
All images are genuine captures. Some of them have been processed using Starry Landscape Stacker and Adobe Photoshop. All final touches have been made in Adobe Lightroom. New digital cameras are far more sensitive to darkness than the human eye. But the cameras cannot produce natural images in any of the automatic modes for long exposures, specially the ones of the Milky Way. These have been processed in order to enhance details of the nebulas and restore the contrast and darkness of the sky and foreground. The very same happens with deep sky photography. The following images will give you an idea of how much is done for each capture.
All images have been captured with a Canon 6D Mk1. My favourite lenses currently in use are Samyang 14mm F2.4 XP and Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC, both provided by intro2020.co.uk, the authorised and sole UK representatives. Some images were captured with Canon 50mm F1.8 EF and Sigma 20mm F1.4 Art. When in need to track the sky, I have been using Skywatcher Star Adventurer for longer exposures of the sky. My Camera is mounted on a custom made nodal head for panoramas.
I thank to all people who influenced me in one way or another. From the guy who show me that clouds are important in landscape, to the way that locations must be researched prior going to them( thanks M. P.). Without them, maybe I would be telling a different story.
