These are my first steps in astrophotography (Milky Way and stars).

I know it could be much better than this, but this shots were taken near my hometown (light pollution was pretty intense).
Hopefully, my next shots will be far outside, in darker area, and they should "reveal" more light in the sky.

(light on the wooden house was from led light of my iPhone4s ).

As photographs they're nice to look at.  As honest portrayals of the beauty of the Milky Way, I find them very lacking.  The Milky Way is not a neon sign in the sky, in a cartoon.  Even on "Futurama" the Milky Way looks more natural than your take on the subject.  But I suppose there is a market for your style, or is there?  Just curious...

Well, I think this is because stars looks nicer and with more vivid colors here in Croatia ;))
Come and check'em out, after shooting stars will head for beer and some "chevapchichi" (you should try that as well).

Thanks very much for the invite...that does look like it would be tasty!  I wish I could travel the world...Europe, and eastern Europe...would be high on my list.  I've heard Croatia has beautiful landscape...

I would like to see an F1 race in Budapest...and then tour the area.  Preferably before F1 racing goes the way of the dinosaur and gets replaced by al gore's clones racing solar sail powered bumper cars at amusement parks!!  It sounds silly but it sure feels like racing is heading in that direction...

How did you get the blue??

I guess same way than I get most photos I like: dumb luck.

Other explanation could be WB-slider?
Yup! Use WB to cool the picture. Will get you bluish hues.

Ah! Okay. I had a feeling but I only changed it a couple clicks. Tonight's gonna be a good night. :D
That song is not for taking pictures of stars!!!!  >:(

Leverage it.

Ahahaha!! You caught it! :D

Found a dark spot in the middle of nowhere and got lucky with some car lights!

Good work, and the satellite kind of adds to it.

A bit too much noise in my opinion but its a bold striking image, good job!

I like the third image the best.  What was making the bright light?
