Chrysler/Fiat should buy these from you. Great job.

How did you get enough light from the stars without having the headlamps overexposed?

Did you layer the sky and then landscape and merge them? I assume you put the camera on a tripod and took both pics??

One shot for the sky, one shot for the jeep, one shot for the headlights, all in the same place on a tripod so they line up correctly.

Very nice pictures. I presume those are unedited. Mind me asking the EXIF data on em? Just curious.

Thank you.

I believe if you click on the photo or the description it should take you to the Flikr site and you should be able to see the EXIF data.

They were mildly edited using Capture Pro One for Sony. Just minor tweaks, adjusting the temperature and exposure value and some sharpening. Not a whole lot though, I try to keep my photos as close to how they were taken as possible.

Camera is a Sony Alpha A7Rm2 with either a Rokinon 24/1.8 or a Sony Zeiss 55/1.8. Sony Zeiss info will show up in EXIF but the Rokinon will not since it does not communicate with the camera body.
