Milky Way inspiration

A good source of inspiration is always good for shooting the Milky Way. I've been working on a project trying to gather the best Milky Way images and stories around the world.

Hope you like it and it encourages to go out and shoot beautiful images of our galaxy!

Re: Milky Way inspiration

What are the rules of this forum in regard to posting images that aren't yours without attribution?

He posted the link to a public forum, where they are found. I don't think it's a problem to repost public images.

Hi Hoka,

I think there is no need to mention the 25 authors of this article on this post when you can just click the article and see their images/stories/websites and social media.
All the images and information was authorized and submitted by them with prior consent.

I just wanted to share their work with the community, hope it wasn't misunderstood!

As long as you have their permission to publish their images without attribution to promote your business for profit, it’s ethical.

Thanks Gman for your understanding. As the owner of a Photography website I'm always concerned about this matters.

Too bad that 90% have no clue what they're doing.......

They all default to the Tungsten Blue WB . "Fake" composites, light painting.

It looks like the sole point to this thread is to promote your photography travel business using other peoples work without attribution. I would be curious to know if they gave you permission to use their images without the information contained in your website. That is what you did here.

i also wonder whether this forum is the right place for self promotion of your workshops.

Even if it is, these are not close to the best MW images anywhere. Check out the astro forum for far better works. Here is a link to the world's best astro photography

https://www.rmg.co.uk/royal-observatory/insight-astronomy-photographer-year

If you want to inspire folks point them there.

Finally, since your post is about astrophotography/nightscapes, why don’t you post it to the astro forum and see what kind of a welcome you get there.

To those other than OP, sorry about the Angry Guy Rant. The original post seems completely inappropriate on a number of different levels.

Re: Milky Way inspiration

Do you think it detracts from the image / feeling when you realise probably less than 10% of these are real?

Wonderful images, but...

Many people actually know that. They choose to ignore, which is totally up to them.
