Hi.. Great shot!
I would try and practice Focus Stacking so that you can have both the trucks and the milkyway in focus at the same time.

Hi. Beautiful capture. Love the way the trucks fade out of focus. Honest image. Mt Tom Price??

Cool shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
FMG Solomon mine site near Karijini national park, Western Australia.
Time
Sunset/night
Lighting
It's actually two photos. I took one at sunset, then used a star gazing app to see when the milky way was in a good spot.
Equipment
Canon 5d mkiii, Canon 16-35mm and manfrotto tripod
Inspiration
I work up here and the machines are huge. I was fortunate enough that there was some trucks out of service so i was able to set the camera up and leave it there for a few hours.
Editing
Two photos blended of the sunset and the stars at night using masking.
In my camera bag
Tripod, variety of lenses, wide, zoom, macro. Depending on what I'm shooting! Wide angle is my favorite!
Feedback
Low aperture for obvious reasons. Using the start gazing app is a must to see where the constellations are at certain times. Get away from as much light pollution as possible! The more remote, the better!
