Well, my first attempt at shooting the Milky Way. I think I've a lot to learn on how to do it. Tried a lot of different settings but probably should've upped the iso to get the shutter count down so there'd be less star movement.

Thanks folks for the votes and comments.

Congratulations on the ribbon, Mark. Not bad for a first time at this. No where to go but up...but only by one ribbon, heh. Seriously, though, this is a fine image.

This is definitely on my list of things to do in the near future. Haven't been to Maui in about 10 yrs so would be nice to go over.

Thanks everyone for the comments! :)

You should shoot this style more often. I like the way you factored the land and water into all this.

Nicely done on your first attempt - and congrats on the ribbon.

Higher ISO is definitely your friend in starry night photography.

Very nice. The amount of detail you've caught in the galaxy is great, but the stars are just starting to look blurred - I'm guessing about 1 minute exposure on a ~24mm equivalent lens? I really like how you've got what looks like clouds in the water in the foreground.
I love night photography, but I'm not very good at it yet, plan to experiment more every time there's a clear sky around the new moon time though.

beautiful

I like the inclusion of the foam of the waves and the portrait orientation so to include more of the sky
