Darryl, maybe I am not to reply in the topic, just post pictures but I have got to say that is awesome!

I have to ask and again maybe I am not suppose to, but was all this real ... the stars... is this the actual photo?  I see a bright light low on the horizon, is that Moon or city lights. I do realize you have some type of flash or lights for the couple. Would you explain the setup and after work if any that was done for this picture.

Thanks

Sorry. I don't make it back here as often as I used to.

It's a single shot. Shot with a Sony A7iii and 24mm f1.4 lens @ f1.4, 13 second exposure, ISO 1600. I also have a flash (Godox AD200) and softbox camera right, set to rear curtain sync. So at the end of the 13 second exposure it fires the flash, freezing the subjects in the foreground. I did ask them to stand very still during the 13 seconds. And that is why the pose is very static, so it is easier for them to hold that position.

The light you see in the background is a car that left where we were a minute or so before we took the shot. We had to move off the road to let them through.

And becasue this one is a single exposure and the focus is on them, at f1.4 the stars aren't perfectly focused. Here is my final photo, which has blended two exposres together. Prior to taking this photo I set the camera up and was taking a timelapse of the stars. So I pulled one of those photos out and combined it with this one for the final image I delivered.
