The scary thing being that it's a panorama stitch and not a composite >_<

Canon 6d + tamron 15-30mm 15mm ISO 6400 x f2.8 x 30s x 50 images panorama using my fish eye sort of panorama style. While it's 50 images - it's only really about 30 images. I had some problems with a new lens and just kept on taking. So quite a few redundant frames in this instance.

I went to Lake Dumbleyung - a salt lake in Western Australia to shoot the milky way. The water level was lower than expected so only took one of the lake itself (may process that one later). I found the thick mud to be an issue as clung to my legs and I sunk more than half a foot into the muddy surface. A bit problematic when you're carrying 2 tripods, camera and a heavy pack when scouting.

Around the lake - there are hundreds of dead trees clutching at the sky - so I visualised with the fisheye effect to have the image framed by them.
I had some stitching issues though - I had to re-stitch one of the frames manually as one of the arms of the milky way initially distorted more than I would like - and a small triangle around the edge had to be filled - I think I've finally worked out how to fix that.
