I am not a fan of blending nor combining two images in one as I have been taught to get it right from the click of the shutter. But I always wanted to shoot a startrail plus a properly balanced exposure and color of the foreground, without the intense blue casts, dark areas and light painted structures.
I came across an amazing online tutorial that teaches the art of digital blending. So as an experiment, I dug through my old lake tekapo shots from my first visit. Spring time lupines!!
Trying out my skills in photoshop, two images, one was taken after the sun has set from the horizon for my foreground and blended it with a 70 image star stacked sky taken 3 hours after… Cheers!!
