Machu Pichu by half moonlight.

Feel free to comment below

I had the good fortune to visit Machu Pichu 100 years after it was officially discovered by the American explorer Hiram Bingham. I was only able to shoot for one night, thankfully that evening there was a little less than a half moon. The moonlight created natural lighting whilst still allowing me to shoot for the stars. I pushed my processing ethics here, during the evening I was only able to capture twelve consecutive exposures, whereas I needed 30 or more for a star rotation. In order to create a better image I decided to blend in some images from another star rotation. The stars really do rotate in this position so I felt it was acceptable to do this.
