Converting an image to black and white gives it a dramatic and mysterious feel. I was going to erase this shot but instead I decided to edit it and upload it here. There's nothing special about the composition, as a matter of fact, I did not care about a perfectly composed shot. I just wanted to capture the moment, to enjoy it while it was happening and that's what I did. Enjoy!!!
Ok, here we go! This is my first attempt at photographing the Milky Way. I'd never attemped this before mainly because it requires to be out late into the night waiting for perfect conditions. And also, it's recommended to be accompanied for security reasons.
A group of photographers invited me to go out and hunt the milky way, so I agreed. We agreed to go to Playa El Cocal located in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico. The night was sort of cloudy and windy but the clouds were fast moving. The hardest thing for me was to change compositions in complete darkness. In summary, we had a great time and I finally got my first Milky Way shot. Enjoy!!!
