    I appreciate the votes and your comments everyone. I love Milky Way shots, and have attempted several - but this one in particular came together in ways even I didn't expect. It is my certainly my favorite of 2017, but probably one of the best (if not the best) photo I've produced in years.

    Great use of multiple exposures. The starry sky is very impressive. I'll have to find a place for it in my top ten.

    I'm so impressed by the detail you have captured. So many people will never see the true glory of the night sky. This is wonderful.

    This is tremendously well done, I'm wondering if I want to try a shot like this one-day. Need lots of patience...there's something about a Lighthouse which always makes for a great scene. You are in my faves.

    Eye catching. Everything is right about this shot. Kudos.

    Truly amazing. Night time and long exposure photography is magical to me, as it can reveal details that the naked eye would not otherwise be able to see. It takes a lot of preparation and patience to capture the Milky Way like this, definitely my favorite!

    Excellent example of astrophotography. I have attempted to do this but never came close to what you have achieved. Congrats on a great image.

    This composite works nicely giving a feeling of darkest night that need the light from the shore.

    Well done, a bit artificial looking but end result is good.

    aoc46: I think you're mistaking the line of fog for the horizon.

    Very nicely done! Great composition, exposure, PP work. Pigeon Point has always been one of my favorite subjects. Nit: note that your horizon is leaning ever so slightly to the left. Or maybe that's just because it's California. ;-)

    I adore night shots - but I'm not a big fan of these types. HOWEVER, this image is perfectly balanced and has totally inspired me know to have a go! Thank you :)

Ps. Absolutely love this image!
