Ivan Pedretti – Italia – Opera Segnalata – Highlight in the category Open Nature
Galaxy of the Dolomites
This is a panoramic of the milky way with the moonset at The Three Peaks of Lavaredo (Italy), called also Drei Zinnen, in a night of July at 2450m, that night it was raining, then the sky cleared and the moon was setting I could make the shots that I wanted to create one panoramic night. For this panoramic I took 12 shots, 6 for foregound at 14mm/f4/ 30s/ ISO 1600, and 6 for the sky at 14mm/f2.8/ 30s/ ISO 3200, I have used a tripod with a a 3 way head. It’s very important using manual focus for shooting stars and focus to infinity, so I tried with my lens to get the best sharpness at infinity focus.
