Post-processing Details:

This image is a composite of two panoramas:
1)7 images for the foreground taken with the Sigma 35
2)5 images for the sky taken with the Sigma 14
Both taken on the same location to resemble as much as posible the sky position of that day.
PS was used to blend both images with adjustments to bring as much detail as posible from the sky.

Image Details:

In this photograph the small town of Monsaraz in Portugal can be seen on top of the hill in the center of the image. This beautiful town is located right next to the Alqueva water reservoir and in the dark sky reserve with stunning starry nights.
