Another little ditty that I stumbled on while digging through the archive attic. Another little reason why I need to get back to the Oregon coast tout de suite. Who doesn’t love astral photography at the base of Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach?

In terms of processing

I wanted to give Dave Morrow’s Under The Stars Lightroom 4 Preset Pack a whirl here and I’m glad I did. In a single click, I was able to apply a preset that got me about 85% of the way to the finished image. The final tweak were done in the Develop module of Lightroom 4.

Dave is a ridiculously talented PacNW photographer. If you aren’t following him, you probably should rectify that. You can also purchase his aforementioned Preset Pack here:
