Cool! Thanks for votes and comments.

To tell the truth I could get much more from this photo session; I was in the perfect place at the right time but I didn't have the strength to go out and shoot at night alone. So I took this shot from the room where we were staying in Castelluccio di Norcia. Too much light to get a super stars shot, but at least not so bad. The secret is having a fast lens and a camera with very good ISO performance. I had a chance, but I lost it... of course I will try once again in a near future :)

This is a great sky, but it leaves me wanting more than a silhouette for the foreground.

Sooo many stars and in basic editing.

I have posted this to another member as well. Hoping for a PM of how you did this. I would love to know your techniques so that I can try this.

This is one of the best shots in the challenge.
Well done. But I don't think the vignette helps.
Still a great shot either way.
