  1. Natural light was provided by a first quarter moon which was low on the horizon at the time of the shot. This helped illuminate the arch with beautiful gold light. I then raised the exposure a little on the arch and sea to bring up some of the detail that was previously hidden.

    Other than the usual Lightroom touch ups on the milky way, I also applied a graduated ND filter in Lightroom on the bottom half of the picture where it meets the sea. This helped tone down some of the light pollution that was present along the horizon and helped reveal a bit more of the milky way.

    Shot details below:
