In real life, the blatant brightness of everything around makes the stars quite difficult to see, but what if the light pollution was severely reduced--even though the scene itself was still bright? What if the Columbiad really did launch rockets into interstellar travel? Wouldn't that be pretty cool? Well, to create the photo below, I took a nighttime shot of Disneyland Paris (a couple of them, actually), did a manual HDR, then overlaid them onto a picture I took earlier this year from Joshua Tree National Park. I masked the stars in in layers to avoid a jarring effect where the sky met the subject. What do you think?
