Stars in Afghanistan II by swiftmoonphoto Stars in Afghanistan II by swiftmoonphoto
I really can't wait for the winter rains to come and knock down this incessant dust. It's so bad that even starlight is making it glow and forcing my hand on some exposure choices.

I feel like I'm almost getting the image I want. I just need to be able to knock back my ISO one or two notches so I can get better blacks before I go into photoshop.

If anybody knows some some Milky Way photography tips, any help would be had.

Thanks, and I agree. This place would be a photographer's dream if it weren't for that whole silly war thing.

If it's the dust that gives the Milky Way that colour then it really works, love it. See if you can get some clues from Greg Gibbs' work [link]
