Default Star Trails

Just getting into photography, and I'm pretty interested in astrophotography. I've done some star trails so far, and figured tonight would be a good night to mess around. Picture is a little busy, could probably lower the exposure to catch less stars, but I thought it turned out alright.

Canon 80d, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, ISO 1600, 13" exposure. Multiple images taken over about 45 minutes

No post processing, as I'm still learning Lightroom.

The airplanes kind of take away some of it, but I think they're cool.

Give me some tips/criticism!

I'm sure you're just getting started, but it's time to get something more interesting in the foreground.

I like it!

Yeah, the foreground is a little boring. Was just playing around in the backyard. Hope to try some good scenery next month in Colorado!

Also been playing around in Lightroom. Picture lacks a little vibrance. Hard to get it to look great without looking fake. Guess it's just a learning process!

I've always looked forward to capturing planes in the shot. Looks cool!

Tried messing around in Lightroom. Still looks a bit fake?


For sure need a better foreground
