First Milky Way shot - your feedback? (20mm f1.8)
1

Photo taken in South Wales last night. I've seen some forum members work real magic before, so I'm interested in your feedback.

I know the composition isn't great. For now my goal was to simply to capture the Milky Way core.

I shot RAW then edited in Capture One Express 21 (Sony version). Camera is A7III. Lens is Sony 20mm f1.8. 25-second exposures (using "500 rule").

Questions:

- What do you think of choice of my choice of exposure length (20secs), ISO (1600)

- What do you think of my post-processing? Anything you would do different?

- Is there anything more I can do in post to make the Milky Way core stand out more?
