Have you ever tried to stare up at the stars for a while? Neither do I, until early this summer when I started to photograph star trails. I remember the first time I saw the milky-way it was incredibly beautiful.
There are two people to blame for this photo. +Dave Morrow
and his "Under the Stars" Lightroom presets (http://www.davemorrowphotography.com/p/under-stars-lightroom-4-presets.html
) and Anelia Nikolova for the beautiful song she posted early today (http://goo.gl/pKv1Q
). You can NOT even imagine how smooth the process goes while listening to Serbian pop-folk music! #PlusPhotoExtract Little info about the picture taken
I know it doesn't look like Santorini but, YES this is Santorini in fact this is one of the two mountains we have here (if you call that mountain).

In my workflow I used Lightroom 4 - "Under the Stars" (http://www.davemorrowphotography.com/p/under-stars-lightroom-4-presets.html
) presets by +Dave Morrow
, Kolor - Autopano Pro 2.6.3 to stitch the 4tiles of the panorama and after Photoshop CS6 and Nik Software plugins.
I will post in depth about +Dave Morrow
's presets another time but for now I'll just say that his work is amazing and believe me is worth giving much more than 5bucks for all the work he put up together.
