Perseids Meteor Shower over Piz Alv, Oberengadin, Switzerland, August 2016

In my last post I shared the same shot as one usually sees the sky. With some magic using Adobe Lightroom one can get much more out of such an image even though the human eye cannot see the sky like this.

In this case I wanted to keep the lower part as is while increasing contrast, exposure and temperatur in the upper part to get the Milky Way shining. It is certainly important for such an exercise to have taken the shot in RAW format.

For more details on the basic shot see here.
